About this Cook
Well, my name is Sherry, but my two adorable grandkids call me Mema - isn't that cute! My daughter is my heart. She never understood that until she had her own she gets it! I have been married to a wonderful man for 20 years. There is not one minute of my life I would change or want to do over...I feel truly blessed and I thank God every morning for the day ahead of me.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake and I look forward to the holidays every year. If I make cookies or a cake, my husband tells me to "quit making this stuff" he sits there stuffing his face!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I try out new recipes every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I spend weeks picking out the recipes and my only rule is that I can't try them out ahead of time. I know a lot of people think this is not a good idea during that special time of year, especially if you have a lot of people over, but to me it is more about the journey than the destination!
My cooking triumphs
Most of the time I do pretty good and not too many people complain. (See below for the reason not too many people complain about my cooking.)
My cooking tragedies
When I don't do so good and someone complains, I just don't cook for them anymore. That actually stops pretty much everyone from complaining!

Chicken Paprikash
I did not care for this recipe. Maybe it's just me, but seriously, this was not good.

Holiday ONLY Mashed Potatoes
Excellent recipe. The only thing I did was follow the advice of another reviewer and heated the heavy cream. I will definately be serving this again.

Rich Chocolate Tart
I need to try this again. It didn't set and just kind of oozed onto the plate. While reading the other reviews I have decided I must have done something wrong.

Versatile Chicken Salad
Versatile Chicken Salad

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Beautiful Broccoli Salad

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
