About this Cook
I am a grandmother that enjoys cooking for family and friends. Athough I travel 46 weeks of of the year, I look forward to getting home to my husband and my stove...and in that order!
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking huge pots of food, after which I can and freeze for my husband's meals while I travel with my job.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom had dibs on Thanksgiving. She loved the huge feast and getting all of the family together for which she did all of the cooking.
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say that I even impressed myself when I made SWEET POTATO CHEESECAKE. It looked like a picture out of a magazine and my husband ooh-ed and ah-ed with every bite.
My cooking tragedies
As a young cook, I learned that you should never empty the last part of the bag of thawing french fries to hot grease. With this experience, I did learn how to take my oven apart to clean it, so it was not a complete tragedy!

Smothered Beef Liver
We love the traditional Liver and Onions buried in brown gravy, but I decided to try this recipe. DELICIOUS AND SO TENDER. I may make the traditional type of dish as a change, but this is definitely going to be my favorite way to prepare liver and onions. I did make a few changes due to using what I had on hand: Used can of tomato soup and 1/4 cup water (misread the recipe). I mince/freeze 2 onions to a quart bag, so I used a bag of minced onions. Didn't have oregano, but substituted Italian seasoning and added 1/2 tsp of garlic powder. I told my husband that we were having ITALIAN BEEF LIVER. He also loved the flavor and tenderness of the liver.

Fudge Puddles
Excellent recipe. I had a little of the chocolate filling left over to which I added chopped pecans and spread over buttered parchment. Very good fudge! Next time that I make Fudge Puddles, I plan on mixing the chopped pecans into the chocolate filling before I fill the cups.

Fancy Hamburgers
This does not work as FANCY HAMBURGERS. Making the recipe exactly as written made a ground meat concoction that was too runny and could not make patties. Instead, I placed it in a loaf pan and made a sweet meatloaf, cooking it for an hour at 350 degrees. My husband and I would give FANCY MEATLOAF five stars.
