About this Cook
I am married 30+ years and enjoy cooking for my family. My daughter is away at school, so I make a lot of double recipes, then freeze in individual portions for her to experience a "taste of home."
My favorite things to cook
I like to experiment with foreign dishes, and also enjoy the "tried and true" standards like meatloaf, pot roast, chicken pot pie, etc.
My cooking triumphs
Any holiday dinner counts as a "triumph." I always make everyone's favorites and somehow manage to have it all ready at the same time.
My cooking tragedies
Despite my successes over the years, it's the simple things that get me: I always burn grilled cheese! (Once it was so bad, I threw the smoking pan, sandwich included, out the front door into the snow. The next morning the sandwich was gone, but I had to throw the pan away because you could still see the image of the bread branded into the Teflon!)

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars
I scaled the recipe to 16 servings because I have a 9x9 pan, and that worked great. I added some chopped walnuts to the topping, too.

Raspberry Oatmeal Bars
These bars came out great. I used non-stick foil and had no problem with sticking. I chose to add some chopped walnuts to the topping and really liked that addition.

Tantalizing Turkey and Blue Cheese Meatballs
These meatballs were tender, flavorful and delicious. I used ground turkey breast and baked them on foil sprayed with cooking spray. Per the suggestions of other reviewers, I allowed them to cool on the foil and they came right off despite the fact I forgot to add oil to the recipe. I used Worcestershire in place of soy sauce. I served them over noodles topped with a white sauce to which I added garlic and Parmesan cheese--mmmmmmm GOOD! Thank you for a recipe I will use again! P.S. My husband had leftover meatballs in a sandwich for lunch the next day: like a meatloaf sandwich, only better.
