About this Cook
I am a retired OR nurse. Married to my second husband for 26 years. Two grown children and 3 gradchildren add to my joy. That and an adorable Chinese Crested animnal companion and retired racing greyhound make my life complete! We enjoy traveling and seeing the wonders of the US and exploring foreign countries.
My favorite things to cook
I love anything that makes cooking easier. After cooking for over 40 years, this recipe site keeps me interested in mixing things up. I cook almost exclusively from the recipes I find here. I love using my pressure cooker and slow cooker. Since I have started using this recipe site, meals are almost 100% successful, thanks to tips from other recipe reviewers.
My cooking tragedies
About 25 years ago I had about 16 people over for Christmas dinner. I wanted to fix a pork tenderloin. I went to the butcher and bought enough for all to have a couple servings. For whatever reason, I didn't read a recipe, but just put it in the oven for about 4 hours, no liquid or anything. When I went to serve it, it was a petrified piece of meat...and I had all these people who were starving! All stores closed for the holiday, so it was a sparce meal of just side dishes. I can laugh about it now, but then it was mortifying!

Cajun Style Baked Sweet Potato
Sliced into fries, baked 1 1/4 hour at 350 degrees, turning twice. They were absolutely wonderful

Hot German Potato Salad III
Followed the recipe except used a package of Simply Potatoes, the sliced variety, instead of peeling, cooking and slicing my own. The sauce was enough for the amount of potatoes in the package. Using this shortcut made the recipe very easy. My husband has been asking for german potatoes but every recipe I have seen before just seems too time consuming. We both loved the recipe and I will be serving him his German potatoes on a regular basis now

Slow Cooker Cinnamon Apple Steel Cut Oats
I scaled it down for my 1 quart slow cooker. I used 1 cup steel cut oats 2 cups water, 20 oz applesauce, 3 small apples, 1 tsp cinnamon and 1 tsp brown sugar. I also added a handful of dried cranberries. Cooked it on low for 8 hours and it turned out perfectly. Very hardy breakfast. Husband loved it too.
