About this Cook
I've just become a grandmother. This event has reminded me of how I've got to get healthy and stay that way. My husband and I have been discussing going vegetarian.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are vegetables prepared different ways. I love roasted winter veggies, especially when I add tomatoes. Low-fat veggie casseroles are a family favorite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family looks to me for a big Thanksgiving dinner. I like cooking the main course (turkey or chicken) in a crockpot in order to leave the oven and stove free for special sides. All the guests and family get a say in what else gets served.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest cooking triumph was helping plan and execute with the help of parents a Turkey Dinner with trimmings for about 90 Third Grade students, some parents and the teachers.
My cooking tragedies
I made beef broth with clam juice the day before Thanksgiving to serve in my new china broth cups with saucers. I thought it was going to save time but when I slowly reheated it (about the same time as making it) the broth became too salty to eat. I've made it a few times since and love it. I just don't make it ahead of time.

Irish Tea Cake
Not fancy, just perfect with coffee or tea. Great for an afternoon break or a treat after homework is finished.

Orange Juice Chicken
Too sweet for me, but the sauce on top of brown rice got the kids to eat rice without a grumpy remark. I agree with a previous reviewer that some more mustard added while cooking the sauce would be a good idea. I'm going to add some when I serve the leftovers.

Beef Peach Pie
When going thru recipes, I kept passing this one over thinking it's weird but I'll try it someday. Someday came today and it is so easy. It's a tad too sweet for me, but picky eater daughter loves it and grandkids will eat it. I have to admit that it's tasty and goes well with boiled potatoes and plain green beans.

You won't believe all the things you can do with cauliflower. It's a great low-carb option.
