About this Cook
I am a lover of coffee, chocolate, and dogs. I love to walk on the beach with My beloved Princess (lab/rotty) and plan what we will have for lunch and dinner. This usually leads to a craving for a mocha and a sausage mcmuffin. I am not overly sociable with people and work at home as a daycare provider, but only part time.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are rare steak, Texas Red (an award winning family favorite chili type dish), vegetable soups, Mexican food, lasagne, beef stroganoff, and pastas of all kinds.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy when everyone brings one of their specialties to a family gathering. I loved Mimi's fried chicken and Grandma Ruth's multi talented cooking and kitchen with every ingredient ever needed. I also enjoy when my husband, Steve cooks. He often makes old recipes of his late father's, and always a mess!
My cooking triumphs
One successful turkey dinner for three the first time I cooked my own turkey. Passing off a Safeway boxed dinner as a home cooked meal at Thanksgiving, since I could not afford to buy a frozen one in time to defrost it.
My cooking tragedies
The turkey was cooked with the bag of icky stuff still in it. Another turkey landed on the floor. One time my sister, Anni and I tried to bake beer bread. We did something wrong. Our collie, Lady would not try it and it bounced down the alley like a hard ball.

Quick and Easy Alfredo Sauce
This was the most delicious meal I have ever made in twenty minutes. I did not change the recipe one bit and it was fabulous. Using a whisk really helps with the cream cheese. Thank you so very much. We will have it often.
