About this Cook
I have 3 children, 2 in Pa, and 1 in Utah. Enjoy visiting them when I get a chance. There are 4 grandchildren, ranging in age from 5 to 22. I am looking forward to retiring and being able to visit with the family more.
My favorite things to cook
I like Pa. Dutch cooking since I grew up in Eastern, Pa., close to the Amish communities. I like to cook my husband's favorites: potato salad; funny cake, shoo-fly pie, and other pies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We enjoy baking lots of cookies at Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
My pineapple cheese pie won a blue ribbon in a local contest while boating in the Chesapeake bay.
My cooking tragedies
When preparing a funny cake for my visiting sister and her husband from Alabama, I forgot to add the baking powder. Needless to say, we didn't have that pie on the table for them to enjoy.

Butternut Squash Soup
I have made this recipe many, many times. It always turns out great! I use only half block of cream cheese, and it's plenty creamy. Also I have used red pepper flakes instead of the cayenne pepper, and that substitution works well too.
