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!

Split Pea Smoked Turkey Soup
Fixed this using cut up smoke turkey. Used an immersion blender at the end. It was beyond wonderful!

Jalapeno Popper Spread
Made this for company to snack on while the pizza was cooking. Used parmesean-Romano cheese and topped with panko mixed with the cheese. Baked in the oven for 25 minutes. They asked for the recipe.

Ginger Chili Citrus Salmon
Used agave instead of honey and omitted the sugar as suggested by another reviewer. I reduced the marinate while the salmon was cooking. I was rather alarmed by the vinegary smell of the marinade, so added about 1/4 cup orange juice to the reduction. It still smelled rather vinegary, but I need not have worried. This was by far the most flavorful grilled salmon we have ever had! Just the right amount of heat from the red pepper flakes. I think that if the salmon had been the least bit fishy beforehand, this would have taken care of the problem. This will be our new favorite grilled salmon recipe! Thanks!
