About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Whole grain pastas, fresh vegetables, shrimp and bacon. I love experimenting with different cheeses.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Oyster roast in the fall/winter, clam bake on July 4th, eggnog with brandy at Christmas, Mom's homemade Russian Tea recipe.
My cooking triumphs
My first meal for my husband's family... it was done in a crockpot and all had 2nds! My first Christmas dinner for my side of the family, in a very very small kitchen. I can't believe I didn't knock something over! The last time I cooked Easter dinner, all of my recipes came from this site and everyone piled loads of compliments on me!
My cooking tragedies
Well, I have been known to to get sidetracked and burn something every once in a while.

Baked Potato Salad I
love love love it! I did the recipe for 12 servings and used a whole package (24 slices)of american cheese and added extra bacon. I also used some ranch dip I had on hand and then added enough mayo to make a cup. Since everything in it is cooked, you don't have to stick it in the oven for an hour, but it's sooooo much better if you do! I didn't add the black olives on top, and next time I might sprinkle some dried onion rings or cut up some red bell pepper to dress up the top, just my personal taste. *Update* made this again, this time using what I had on hand, some purple onion, mayo and ranch dressing, and chedder instead of american, and bacon bits. i double the recipe and we ate half of it unbaked like reg potato salad the first night, and then I put the rest in a baking dish, sprinkled some fried onions on top (just the last 10 minutes) and baked for an hour for the next nights supper. I LOVE the idea of this! I'm now going to try baking other potato salad recipes i have, and I'm thinking of trying this "2fer" on macaroni salad too!

Cucumber Slices With Dill
loved it. I whipped up a batch and took it to work for my lunch over several days. I liked the sweetness as a change from the more vinagery recipe. I also used a purple onion instead of a white or yellow one. I will make again.

Slow Cooker Macaroni and Cheese I
I liked it. I liked the "crusting" it did along the walls of the crock pot, I think it created a more homemade look to the dish. I will make this again.
