About this Cook
Started cooking at a young age. I was lucky to have great cooks in the family. I have one rule when it comes to food. "Take one bite" You never know what your missing if you don't try things. You don't have to eat it all, but try it.:~)
My favorite things to cook
Not sure I have a favorite thing to cook. I like trying recipes from all over the world.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Teaching kids to cook, having fun with family in the kitchen.
My cooking triumphs
In the early 1980's I came in 1st place in a Betty Crocker cook off. I have won blue ribbons with my Burnt Sugar Cake at state fair.

Creamy Roasted Parsnip Soup
Nice creamy soup. I did add more broth & garlic as noted by other reviewers. One out of three kids liked it & the four adults loved it. I will make this again. Thanks.

Vegetarian Sweet and Sour Meatballs
I doubled the'veggie meatballs' (used 2 cups bread crumbs) Beacuse of the reviews. They are great 5+ stars; However the sweet & sour sauce was just okay. Out of 6 people only 2 liked it. I was sure glad I didn't cover them all with the sauce. The sauce needs something- might try adding a little brown sugar & Soy sauce. I will make dipping sauces next time and let everyone play around and find the right combo for themselves.
