About this Cook
I am a self-taught cook which means sometimes I am really good at it and other times not so much. I keep trying new and healthy ways to cook vegetarian. My husband has been a vegetarian for over 30 years and I am enjoying the same healthy lifestyle.
My favorite things to cook
For many years, I did not cook very healthy. Now that I am older I am learning to cook with fresh vegetables, beans and rices. I have always loved to bake, now I try to bake healthy. It has been a learning experience but lots of fun.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up a very picky eater and did not experiment much, so now I am trying all kinds of new things. I had very little training in how to cook growing up so I am learning by doing. My cooking traditions are still a work in progress.
My cooking triumphs
I have learned that I can make almost anything I want with the right recipe and time. It may not come out right the first time, but that keeps it interesting.
My cooking tragedies
(1) trying to cook a turkey in the microwave -- what a disaster and (2) I make chicken breasts once that were so dry we gave them to our dog and she buried them (and she ate anything).

Shrimp Scampi Bake
I made this recipe for our New Years Eve dinner and it was wonderful. It was so much easier than I thought, yet it tasted as good as going out to eat (which would have cost A LOT more)!! I served it over thin pasta, but want to try it over Penne next time. I over-did it on the dijon but it actually gave it an extra kick that my husband loved. This is my new holiday meal. Thank you for the recipe. We loved it!!

Cherry Chip Cookies I
I was not sure about this recipe, but I tried it anyway. I love these cookies. They really like how light they are. They are not as heavy as other chip cookies can be. They were so easy, it took no time to make them. Thank you for this recipe...it's my new favorite!

Baked Beans from Scratch
I LOVE this recipe. I did as some of the others suggested: soaked overnight, cooked for one hour, then made in the crock pot. I doubled the recipe so that I could use the whole bag of beans (1#). The only thing I added was a tsp. of cider vinegar and a dash of mustard. The first bite was a little sweet but after only a second I was in heaven. These taste so much better than canned beans and I know exactly what went into them. For the cost of one can of name brand beans, I made a whole crock pot full. Thank you for the great recipe. I am going to always have these on hand!!
