About this Cook
Since I retired and started working at home, I find I have to do more cooking than I did before. I eat fewer salads and try to make 2-3 healthy recipes that last through the week.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta, salads, slow cooker recipes - particularly chicken and dumplings , cakes, muffins; breadmaker bread
My favorite family cooking traditions
turkey and stuffing; cucumber salad; coleslaw; brownies
My cooking triumphs
chicken and dumplings; tuna and rice casserole; bundt cakes; honey wheat bread; bean soups of various kinds
My cooking tragedies
Macaroni and Cheese -- my mom had a recipe handed down from her mother-in-law that used raw spaghetti, milk and Kraft English slices that I just can't duplicate. I keep trying though. I make a lousy cheese sauce with any recipe I've ever used.

Boscobel Beach Ginger Cake
Great recipe! This was the first cake I've ever baked successfully -- I bought a Bundt pan just to try it. The ginger flavor was distinct yet not overwhelming, and the texture was dense and moist.

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.

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