About this Cook
I've been married to my husband Bill for 40 years. We have 3 daughters and 7 grandchildren.
My favorite things to cook
Asian and Indian foods
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love to bake cookies at Christmas, and I always bake my mothers favorites.
My cooking triumphs
The one dish I am very proud of is my Chicken Kiev. My father always asks me to make it for special dinners. He's now 88, and we are all eating a lower fat diet these days.
My cooking tragedies
The Christmas Eve when my stove broke down and I had to cook EVERYTHING on a gas barbacue.

Goldenrod Egg
I learned how to make this in the 7th grade Home Ec class in 1959. I've made it for almost every Easter breakfast since then. When making a white sauce, be sure to use white pepper, and I like to use canned milk, it has a creamy consistency before cooking.

Cabbage Patch Stew
My family just loves this stew. Instead of Picante sauce, I use Rotell tomatoes & chile's in the original flavor and a can of diced tomatoes, and I use the coleslaw cabbage in a bag for quick fixing. I also add 1 can of diced green chile's.

Super Duper Oatmeal
For this recipe, I use Irish Oats in a rice cooker that has programing for porridge. I add all the ingredients at night, and in the morning everything is ready. I add a pat of butter, or Smart Balance, to give it the salt taste it needs.
