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.

Turkey Roll Sushi
I wanted this for my lunch and really liked it. As the submitter suggested, this is a perfect recipe for customizing with whatever you happen to have. Since I didn't have pickled peppers, I subbed dill pickles. I also felt that the amount of garlic called for would be too much, so I just sprinkled and tasted until I liked the flavor. While I ate this for lunch, I can really see it on an appetizer tray as well.

Zucchini and Eggs
What a delicious breakfast and a great way to get more veggies in your diet! The garlic powder makes it!

Almond Butter and Blueberry Smoothie
To be perfectly frank, this recipe seemed strange to me, but it piqued my curiosity. I couldn't imagine putting the almond butter and the blueberries together. But strangely enough, the flavor was good! Both flavors came through without too much competition from each other. I used frozen blueberries and added the 2 ice cubes as well. Nice and thick and cold, just the way I like my smoothies.
