About this Cook
I am a great grandmother. IN love for sure!!! My mother was the best cook . She always worked n resturants and owned a cafateria for years. Baked 15 pies every day for over 10 years. She taught me so much. I love to cook. It is therapy for me. My mom and so many family members are gone now but when I am in the kitchen I feel close to them. I love to experiment. I never cook with out looking at many recipies and then combining them. Always tweeking them. I use All recipies web site a lot . I love to watch cooking channels. I havae been married almost 50 years. Have two children. Love the Lord. Have taken small groups to Israel several times. Love to find baking tips and another good recipie. Live In Oklahoma.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking mac and cheese. Deserts, cookies, Cheese cake with splenda. My new thing is making cream style corn home made. I love to cook Prime rib when I can find it on sale. Home made hot rolls and cinammon rolls. Lately have enjoyed finding new wasy to make easy cobblers. Home made bisquits are fun to surprise family with. And creaps are fun to make. I have a pecan bar recipie that I love and it is also easy. I use satued onions in a lot of things. Find it really helps the flavor. In winter I love to cook corn and shrimp soup and corn bread. Chili is always a winner. I lived in the south many years so I love the shrimp and crawfish recipies. I guess you can say I am crazy about cooking and experimenting. Try something new. create something that no one has done. You will love it once you get into it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family never could have Thanksgiving with out a Turkey , dressing , gravy, and Ham. Always had real mashed potatoes. Home made hot rolls. Never sis we have a family dinner with out corn of come kind. That was for me. Green bean cassorole with the onions on top and also a huge cassorole of sweeet potatoes with lots of pecans on top. Our favoriet pies, lemon, apple, chocolate, coconut, banana pudding was always there. Never with out a freen salad and also a jello cottage salad. The next family favoriet meal was home made tacos. Mom made her tacos out of roast. and they were awesome. That is what she used in the resturant. Our family always ask for her home made tacos if we got together any other time. Ice tea was our favoriet beverage.

Pecan Pie Tarts
These were wonerful. I used the wooden tart former and found out I needed to use less crust in each tart. Will add sugar to crust, little more flour so it would not be sticky Chilled for a few minutes before making tarts.Doubled the filling and almost used it all. I will make these again with these changes.
