About this Cook
I have cooked with my mother since I could lick beaters! Now I have a home of my own and am loving making meals for my husband each day! I cooked him a meal the first day I met him and I always tease him that he married me for my cooking! ;)
My favorite things to cook
Desserts Comfort foods Chicken dishes Easy recipes Anything chocolate!
My favorite family cooking traditions
It would take more than 1,000 characters to tell of all our family favorites! I can't tell you how many times I have called my mom to ask for a recipe that we loved! Among them: poppyseed chicken, frozen peanut butter pie, oyster stuffing for Thanksgiving dinner...
My cooking triumphs
I love taking dishes to potluck dinners and having them come back empty!
My cooking tragedies
My dad always had this rule when I was growing up: "Measure twice, cut once." I would alter this for cooking: "Read the recipe twice, measure once!!" If only I could remember this...!

Zucchini Chive Dip
Ooolala!! One of the best dips I've ever tasted! And so creamy! We ate it with Wheat Thins and couldn't stop! I broke down and bought fresh chives - very glad I did! Thanks for sharing this recipe!

Summer Zucchini Casserole
Mercy, this was soooo good!!! Someone had given me tons of zucchini, so I went a-searching for recipes! This one is a keeper! I did make a few changes as I didn't have carrots, so I added diced yellow pepper, mushrooms and green onions in place of the carrots. I sauteed my zucchini and onion in olive oil instead of boiling them. I only used about 3/4 can of cream of chicken and 3/4 cup sour cream. I also added some cheddar cheese to the mix. I did double the stuffing as suggested and was glad I did. My husband and I usually have some form of meat in our suppers, so this was a change. But he loved it and so did I! Bring on the zucchini!!

Sweet and Spicy Pumpkin Seeds
Wow!!! I have never been a big fan of pumpkin seeds, but this recipe has changed my mind forever! It caught my attention because my husband loves spicy things. This was also one of the easier recipes and it only takes 45 minutes! I think I am going to have to come up with more ways to use pumpkins because we will be having this again! By the way, I don't know what kind of hot sauce other people have been using, but we used my husband's "Z nothing beyond Extremely Hot Sauce" and 2 drops was just enough! Any more and I probly wouldn't be able to feel my lips! I also liked the suggestion to mix the sauce and then test taste it before adding the pumpkin seeds. Thanks for sharing this recipe!
