About this Cook
Have been cooking for over 25 years. Started as a kid and never stopped. Feel free to ask anything. Not real good with fish never was a big fan but now as I'm getting older I know the nutritional value is important. Maybe this site will help with that.
My favorite things to cook
Just everday meals. Breakfast lunch and dinner. Into Panini's right now. Love to roast veggies and toast bread with butter and garlic, grilled well marinated chicken breast and homemade pesto with fontina cheese!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
For every season and every holiday we have our favorite things to cook or bake. Many times throughout the year I will make something the family really likes and they will request it for a special occasion. My husband loves to have Lemon creme pie for Thanksgiving and Christmas. And the same bread stuffing has to be made every year.
My cooking triumphs
Italian gravy Chicken Panini Sour Kraut soup Tofu Pad Thai Mango Chicken A Big Salad w/Raspberry dressing
My cooking tragedies
Over the years I screwed up many dishes. One in particular is Stuffed cabbage. Instead of using milk with the soup for the gravy I used water. Tasted terrible.

Cranberry Muffins
Very tasty. Took others advice used only 1/2 cup OJ. Added walnuts and sprinkled Wilton brand "sprinkles" white sparkling sugar. My batch made 8.
