I received my 2nd CSA box. Mostly the same as last time -  strawberries, mustard and turnip greens, broccoli, and cauliflower - but with the addition of lettuce. I made PERFECT MIXED GREENS again, only omitting the collards this time. Delicious once again! I made BROCCOLI-CAULIFLOWER SALAD… MORE

About this Cook
I'm a wife, mother of 2, and grandmother of 6. I love to cook. I especially like to cook new and different recipes. I don't like to have the same meals week after week. My husband has decided it really doesn't matter whether he likes a new recipe or not because he won't see it again for a very long time anyway!
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook entrees and desserts. I like preparing good, down-to-earth cooking. I also decorate cakes, mostly for the grandchildren now.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays bring out the traditions: chocolate chip cheese ball; crockpot chicken and dressing; and broccoli salad, sweet potatoes and butterscotch pie handed down from past generations. Another thing that must be tradition in my family: we all make new recipes when we have company! My mother, sister, daughter, and I all do this. My daddy never understood why we would risk making something we had never made before. Actually, none of us has ever served company a new recipe that didn't taste good.
My cooking triumphs
Cake decorating: wedding cakes, bridal and baby shower cakes, birthday cakes: Little Pirate, Cinderella, Elmo, Strawberry Shortcake. My friends call me Betty Crocker. When my daughter got married, she had a bridal shower where the guests were asked to write something on an apron. My best friend told her if she needed a recipe or help in the kitchen to ask her mother. If she needed a good place to eat out, ask her.
My cooking tragedies
A 4 tier huge wedding cake that fell apart at 2:00am. Thankfully, I still had time to salvage the cake.

Barb's Broccoli-Cauliflower Salad
A perfect July 4 salad for the cookout! I subbed regular white vinegar merely as a personal preference.

Vegan Banana Ice Cream
Love the flavor that the cinnamon and pecans add to this! Personally, I prefer just a little added Truvia, but that's a preference. The process for this recipe works to make a soft serve ice cream, or wait a few minutes (or blend longer) for a thick, drinkable smoothie.

Mango Walnut Salad
I love salads with fruit in them. I had a mango I needed to use and found this recipe. So glad I did. Sara, the submitter, suggested we leave it plain or serve it with our favorite vinaigrette. I usually prefer a white balsamic vinegar dressing, but this time I added a light cream cheese-orange dressing I had made for another salad and it was delicious.
