About this Cook
I've been cooking since I was a child and enjoy cooking for my family and friends. My goal is to inspire others through delicious food. I also work towards teaching my children a love of food.
My favorite things to cook
I don't have one particular food that is a favorite to cook. There are many things that are my favorites. It all depends on my mood. Family and friends say I'm willing to cook most anything and if I don't know how to cook something I'm willing to learn how.
My cooking triumphs
making an Indian style curry with naan bread all from scratch (even ground all of my own spices for the garam masala). The chicken korma was excellent, the vindaloo was even better.
My cooking tragedies
One cooking tragedy was from when I was 12 and made biscuits that were like hard tack. Needless to say I learned in a hurry not to over work the biscuit dough. :)

No Bake Cookies V
This recipe works great and has become my go to recipe for no bake cookies. I do find that butter instead of margarine is key (but some may feel it is a personal preference), and although regular cocoa makes a good tasting cookie, I find that using dutch process cocoa makes for a superb flavor with these. Only other thing is that I almost never have chunky peanut butter in the house, so use creamy peanut butter in its place. As for any changes to amounts, I guesstimate on peanut butter - so when I make these the peanut butter may be a little light or a little heavy. Either way they have turned out good. Also with the vanilla, I have used both vanilla extract and vanilla bean paste. Both give the same results.

Swedish Meatballs I
I've been making this recipe since 2004 and my family enjoys it. I have made it both as written and also with slight tweaks. It is tasty both ways. For those times I don't have cream of wheat in the house, I have used crushed ritz cracker crumbs and they give a good taste in the recipe. For the past few years I have come to prefer the ritz cracker crumbs in this recipe instead of cream of wheat. In the past I've also substituted cream of celery soup for the cream of mushroom with excellent results. This recipe is excellent served with mashed potatoes or with egg noodles. Thank you Jessica for sharing this.

Sweet Restaurant Slaw
This is a delicious slaw recipe and one I've been using since 2007. It gets rave reviews anytime I make it for family or friends. I have made it both as the original recipe and also with my changes. I've found that my family prefers it when I use onion powder instead of the fresh onion added in - but if using fresh onion, the sweet onion that is finely chopped works best for flavor. Also I prefer apple cider vinegar instead of white vinegar in the recipe. For the vegetable oil I use extra virgin olive oil. Only thing I add that isn't in the recipe is some black pepper. This is a great slaw recipe and one that is better than any of the slaw dressings that are available at the store.
