About this Cook
Semi-retired. (Retired USAF and civil service State of California).
My favorite things to cook
Tex-Mex Soup. Texas Caviar (dip). Chili. Meatloaf.
My favorite family cooking traditions
While growning up we had a mixture of English and Down Home American meals on our table. My (Canadian) dad's favorite was Toad in the Hole and Butter Tarts. Mom was more spaghetti and meat loaf. My American Grandma (Goggy) made delightful Pickled Watermelon Rind. And my Canadian Grandma made fruit cakes (which I really like!)
My cooking triumphs
Poor man's quiche. Instead of using a pie crust, I would use the biscuits that come in those pop-out cans. Line a casserole with the bisquits. Also Quickie Meatloaf. I use a stuffing mix (or StoveTop) in the meat and add an egg or two and BBQ sauce. Add ingredients to taste -- like onion, garlic, bell peppers ... but not too many ... Drizzle BBQ sauce on top ... and into the oven... yum.
My cooking tragedies
Chicken Mole. When I boiled down the chicken to make a broth... I used poultry seasoning ... which carried over into the Mole .... yuck!

Texas Caviar I
This is the bomb! When my husband sees me on this site, he groans. But when I made this for him ... he asked for more. So now he's not too bothered when I experiment... err practice. I've done some of the variations that others have posted (like mexicali-corn or avacado) and it still comes out GREAT. Wonderful for New Years Eve/Day ... as Black-Eyed Peas are a tradition of that time of year. We eat this with corn-chip scoops -- yummy. Thanks for sharing this with us.

Pebber Nodder (Danish Christmas Cookies)
Very easy to make. My first batch yielded 220 cookies - I guess I have small fingers. I used my thumbnail as a guide for 1/2-inch and used kitchen shears to cut the pieces. Just sweet enough to enjoy many many many times. I will try some of the variations posted here. Thank you for sharing this with us.
