About this Cook
In college I was a live-in maid and had to cook both Weight Watcher's and 'normal' meals. I did not cook for the ensuing 30 years because my ex did all the cooking. I have been cooking for my new husband for the last 10 years, and have really learned to love to cook since I retired 5 years ago. My husband loves to be surprised by what I've made next, or in what kind of combination. He is such a trooper!
My favorite things to cook
I feel very rich when I have a lot of fresh vegetables and fruits and love to combine them into beautiful meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My stepdad used to make Cioppino and the whole family would help
My cooking triumphs
I have learned to expand my repertoire to include every type of cuisine at least once. I now make desserts at every turn because husband has a sweet tooth.
My cooking tragedies
I got a new oven and burnt most everything I made

Turkey Portobello Pizza
This is great without the meat as the author suggested. ! I scraped the gills and marinated the mushrooms a bit before grilling outside. It was a hit

Three Bean Salad
This is the best! Not too sweet and tastes even better the next day. I used fresh green beans and red onion instead of green

Best Cream Of Broccoli Soup
What a great dish for St. Patrick's Day! It is very tasty. The broccoli purees very easily if you make sure that each batch has some of the broth in the bottom of the blender.
