About this Cook
I recently married for the first time at age 50 and instantly became a stepmom and stepgrandma! I am a stay at home foster mom to cats and kittens for the local animal shelter so my days can be busy, but very rewarding.
My favorite things to cook
Love to try new recipes and experimenting with my crockpot - which is a real timesaver. Recently tried a ham with beer and apple cider and it was fabulous.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was an excellent cook but she passed away 10 years ago. I still make a lot of her favorite recipes, especially her rhubarb torte every summer. She made the best chicken kiev, salmon patties and gazpacho, unfortunately she cooked a lot from memory and didn't write down her recipes - I can get close but still not as good as hers.
My cooking tragedies
Can't think of any at the moment.

Quick and Easy Guacamole
I love guacamole but never thought to use green onions or seasoned salt. To Cheryl, the red in the photo looks like red onion to me, not tomato. I usually use red onion myself, when I have it. As for tomatoes in guac, I will eat it, but prefer mine without.

Roasted Brussels Sprouts
These were the bomb! We grew them this year and was tired of steamed with butter. I quartered the largest ones we had to make them cook faster and get more browned areas; tossed with garlic flavored olive oil, Weber seasoned salt and Lawry's seasoned pepper. Spread on foil lined baking sheet - 15 minutes at 400 deg. in the convection oven and they were nicely blackened and tasted out of this world. Even the husband who admitted he isn't that crazy about sprouts LOVED these and wants them again. Wish I had thought to snap a picture before we devoured them!

Lemon Pie I
Love this pie! Two were brought to a dinner party and everyone loved it, but only one was eaten. Froze it for a week for pending company and it thawed perfectly and still tasted great! Our local grocery store just had limes on sale for 5 cents each so I went crazy. Want to try a lime version in a pretzel crust. Love the idea of putting in springform pan. Will update when I do that.
