About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
My very favorite food is German/Pennsylvania German food - Rouladen, chicken schnitzel,pork and sauerkraut,dumplings,etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We have a favorite salad recipe that is incorporated into special group dinners. My children love it, but their spouses and children do not. My daughter and daughter-in-law are wonderful cooks so we are always exchanging recipe.
My cooking triumphs
Most people would not call this a triumph...more like "why would you want to serve that". When my husband and I were married, he invited his children and grandchildren for this dinner. At age 58, I learned to make this Pennsylvania favorite, pig stomach or as it is called in Lancaster (Hog Maw) and it did turn out quite well. 14 guests and 3 pig stomachs later, they were well fed.
My cooking tragedies
We were expecting guests for dinner and I made lasagna. We had not seen them for about four years and had a lot of catching up to do. Needless to say, we talked so much that I forgot about the lasagna in the oven. I have only made it one time since and it came out perfect.
