About this Cook
I am a 10 yr breast cancer survivor. I'm in my early 60's and just joined a gym with a personal trainer. Just me and my husband at home. Sometimes our big meal is at noon and other times at 6 or 7. Like new (not exotic) few ingredients and easy recipes especially slow cooker and casseroles. Would like to have an "e" pal. I love to chat on line.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook the "old (unhealthy) comfort foods. I love my meat and potatoes. I like to bake if recipe isn't too complicated. Never have mastered the fine are of pie crusts!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The favorite family recipe is potato soup from my very first cookbook that I received in 1954. My daughter usually makes it now for Christmas eve dinner after church, while we keep an eye out for Santa!
My cooking triumphs
No real triumphs. Just an ordinary blah cook (at least I think I am).
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 8 years old I made a birthday cake for my mother. Probably my first cake (no box cakes then). It fell, I put the homemade icing on it while it was still hot and the cake turned to mush. I hid it behind the piano!!

Old Fashioned Potato Salad
I made this with a few little changes. I too added a little more mayo/salad dressing mix. I added more eggs, to personal taste. Eliminated pickle relish (family doesn't like). Next time I'll try the Dijon mustard, sounds goo. Will definitely make again.

Hearty Beef Soup
I think that even beginner cooks would know to transfer the browned hamburger to a soup pot and add the remaining ingredients and continue cooking as directed. I found it to be very easy, quick, and tasty.

Creamed Eggs on Toast
When I was a child (many yrs ago! Mom would fix this for brkfst or dinner. We called it Goldenrod. We didn't mash the egg yolks, we chopped the entire egg. Add some salt and pepper and what a great dish.
