About this Cook
I work full time, but manage to find time to cook delicious and nutritious meals for my son and me. We have a dog and a cat, who never complain about the table scraps.
My favorite things to cook
I simply love to cook - either old stand-by's or new recipes. I'm trying to "cook healthy" by cutting back on fats and salts, so I've been doing a lot of experimenting. I've been pleased with the results.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was raised with Sunday pot roasts and lots of desserts. Sunday is still my major day to cook, and I share all the sweets with my co-workers.
My cooking triumphs
Seafood is becoming one of my favorite foods to cook and I'm very pleased with the results of some of my experiments. I also love soups and I'm willing to try something new every weekend.
My cooking tragedies
I learned the hard way not to put salt in my pinto beans until AFTER they are cooked!

Cornflake Clusters
I remember these from when I was little - super simple and easy to modify. You can substitute chocolate, dried fruit and other nuts. After spooning onto the wax paper, they are easy to shape into balls. If it is humid, they may stay sticky, but will taste just as good.
