About this Cook
I guess you could say that I am a retired nurse (RN) I make and teach jewelry. All types: wire, hammered, fused glass jewelry, all types of jewelry made with seed beads. I learned how to do torch beads but I haven't done it very often. I of course enjoy cooking, especially now that I have had time to learn.
My favorite things to cook
I love grilling, especially fish. My husband and kids are my favorite audience, they love everything that I cook. My absolute favorite thing to cook is bread. Since I am always dieting it isn't as much fun anymore. I also enjoy my herb garden, I have grown my own herbs for over 5 years now, the past year I have had a bigger garden, before I had them mostly in pots.
My cooking triumphs
I recently cooked a cedar planked salmon that was awesome. I continually amaze myself, since my husband admitted to me that he didn't like my cooking. When we were first married, he would change something that I was making and used to make me so mad, but now I know that he just didn't like my cooking. I always thought my mother was a good cook, but I learned from her and now I realize she wasn't. Now that I can cook he loves my cooking!

Cheesy Amish Breakfast Casserole
My daughter had this when we were over at their house last christmas. On birthdays at our house you get to choose what you want for your birthday. My husband chose this. I am not crazy about breakfast casseroles, but this one is the best I have ever had.
