About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was big enough to stir with a spoon. I live in a small town, am active in my church and am a member of a women's study group in my town. I occasionaly teach a tatting class for those that want to learn how.
My favorite things to cook
Any thing with pasta, bread, coffee cakes, salads, bar cookies
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is always at my house. We have 3 kinds of appetizers, then the traditional dinner. We all bring a dish to Christmas dinner, menu is decided by whoever is hosting it.
My cooking triumphs
My family raves that I make wonderful chocolates - fruit and/or nut soft centers. This is ironic as I am profoundly allergic to chocolate. I am famous for my ham salad and coffee cakes at church. I compiled my own cook book and published it in 2000.
My cooking tragedies
I can not make divinity to save my life. It never sets up.

Autumn Pork Roast
This was a scrumpious roast. I like the presentation of this and the blend of flavors in it. I added some dried (re-hydrated) apple to this as I wanted plenty of apple flavor and need to use the dried apple I have. Other than that I made it as written. Loved what it did for the squash! I will be making this again.

Caramel Apple Box Trifle
I took this to the fellowship hour at church. Everyone raved and had to have the recipe. I usually make a recipe as written when making for the first time; however I was not at all sure that a layer cake would transport easily. So here is what I did: I made the cake as written, removed from the pan and cooled. Instead of splitting and filling the cake I made a coller for the pan, placed it back in the 9x13 and put the pie filling on top. I then mixed up the pudding and poured it on the pie filling and chilled until solid. I frosted with the Cool Whip and sprinkled pecans on top. I omitted the caramel ice cream topping all togather as I like tart and felt it would add too much sweetness. I will make this again, maybe next time with the ice cream topping.

Tomato Bruschetta
Recipe group 8/23/14 This was so good as a hot weather supper. Easy to make and very refreshing. I ommitted the red bell pepper as I don't like it. Nice twist on the bruschetta recipe I usually use.
