About this Cook
I am newly retired, worked 24 years for Doctors, in Park Ridge, Il. I love to sew, ride bikes, cook, and entertain friends. I met my husband when I was 15, and we've been together since, he's the best. My husband and I had our own business in the early 70"s, we had 2 Fast Food places, you name it we served it, we also catered parties. So I continue to love to have parties. Oh,Jeanne Beanne the Hot Dog Queenie was developed. I have one son, and a new grandaughter, my son is a Chicago Police Office, so they live close,. And of course we can't forget our dog Scooter.
My favorite things to cook
I love Italian food, my husband is Italian, and his mother was a great cook! Mexican food is great too.
My cooking triumphs
My Italian Sausage with green peppers, onions, and potatoes. I have submitted the recipe but, it has not been reviewed as yet.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to mention. But trial and error is always good.

Italian Bread Using a Bread Machine
Just made this most excellent French bread. Did everything according to the recipe, only I did not raise dough on separate cutting board, I raised on the baking sheet. This is the best recipe, I can't wait to try it with some Italian spices, that some have suggested. The crust is so nice and crunchy, my husband loved this...thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe.

Baked Scallops
This recipe was excellent!! I followed the recipe exactly, only thing I did was take advise from others, and tossed the scallops in the butter, then tossed them in a zip lock bag with all the dried ingredients. They were done in 20 minutes, perfect. This is a real keeper. Thank you for sharing.
