About this Cook
I am a teacher (pretty obvious considering my profile name). I love to spend time with my friends and family. I love Allrecipes! This site has really helped me develop into a better cook. I try to choose recipes that are healthy for my husband and me.
My favorite things to cook
Hmmm...I haven't been cooking very long. I guess I love to cook soups the best. They are very forgiving for a novice cook to try!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is a wonderful cook. She loves to cook for other people. Mom spends a lot of time cooking for our older neighbors and shut-ins from our church. Everyone is so appreciative of her food. It is made with lots of love. She is a very traditional cook and her recipes are time consuming. I enjoy being her sous chef. I clean up after mom and help prep the ingredients. I am just now learning some of her recipes. She is one of those "add a little of this and that" cooks. Kind of intimidating.
My cooking triumphs
I made Jo An's Power Bars from this site and tweaked them a little for our tastes. My husband loves them and I make them weekly now. I also make a pretty good salmon cake with lemon juice.
My cooking tragedies
Where to begin? I made some power bars one week. I bit into something hard and thought it was a nut. The next day I bit into another bar and found something hard. I spit it out and it was a piece of plastic. I finally figured out it was a piece of plastic from my nut chopper. Oh well!

Taco Seasoning I
Thank you so much for the recipe! I cannot have anything with MSG and all of the commercial taco seasoning packets contain it. This tastes so great. I think it makes the food taste fresher than when using packaged seasoning.
