About this Cook
I've lived in South Central Kansas all my life until I married in 1975. My husband was in the military & we moved around for a few years. We lived in Germany for 3 years where I experienced some of the best food in the world and learned to cook some of it from my landlady. I started cooking in elementary school by helping my mother.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite food is potatoes so I think this is my favorite thing to cook. I love to make Mexican food and am now learning to make Sushi!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love getting together with family and friends to make Thanksgiving dinner. I always make the stuffing and potatoes and it has become my daughters job to roast the turkey and make the pies.
My cooking triumphs
I won first place in a local cooking contest about 20 years ago. I haven't entered the contest since... I think I am afraid of losing!
My cooking tragedies
I made a recipe I found for Mahi Mahi that was smothered in onions. It was nasty and my family will never let me forget that!

Hamburger Hash
I'm not very good at improvising but I felt like this recipe could have used something to spice it up some. It was great for when you don't know what else to fix and don't have much in the pantry.

Asparagus Casserole II
I love asparagus and this was great for when you can't get fresh asparagus. Although the canned stuff is kind of expensive.
