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.

Pork Chops with Apples, Sweet Potatoes, and Sauerkraut
Not a favorite. The flavor just wasn't there. I'll tweek it a bit to fit my family's taste.

Midwest Loose Meats
Best loose meat recipe that I can find online. Made the recipe for four instead of twelve. DH is eating gluten free so we had mashed potatoes instead of buns. Had mixed veggies on the side. You could say we had deconstructed cottage pie.
