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.

Pork Medallions with Balsamic Vinegar and Capers
Thank you so much Marianne! This was so good and yet simple to make. Company worthy for sure. I will be making this again, perhaps without capers as I am not all that fond of them. I made extra sauce to go on rice and am glad I did.

Vegetarian Korma
This was too bland for me and I did add extra curry powder. As one reviewer suggested, I used coconut milk and it helped I think. Cream would have made it more bland. Sorry.

Buttermilk Mango-Berry Crumb Cake
I am surprised I have not written a review before, I thought I had as this is my go-to recipe for crumb cake. Moist, flavorful, good with any fruit and it has a nice presentation. This has gone over well at church coffee hour and bake sales. I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.
