My favorite things to cook
Dinners and entertaining. I love to cook hot soups and a variety of salads. Every so often I like to make something out of the norm. Unusual, that noone has had.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Raised with a lot of German/ Polish/Russian cooking and hearty winter meals are ones I like to prepare most.Lots of veggies.
My cooking triumphs
Everyone who has tried my chicken fruit salad requests the recipe.Salt-free and low in carbs but you would NEVER know it.
My cooking tragedies
Years ago I made homemade doughnuts for my sons cub scout pack. They were beautifully golden brown and the aroma was devine. The looks on the boy's faces were one of surprise. I forgot the sugar and the doughnuts were bland.

Cabbage Beef Soup
I left out the salt and cumin. Because it had bouillon cubes and canned sauce and beans,it already had plenty of salt. The cumin made it taste like chili which was not what I wanted. Overall it had a nice color and taste.( Use dark red kidney beans for color ). I also served with chopped cilantro . Those who like cilantro thought it a fantastic addition. This is a low cost and satisfying meal. If I make it the day before..any fat rises and solidifies on top and can easily be removed for a low fat meal. Great with cornbread.

Fresh Asparagus, Tomato, and Feta Salad
Loved this salad! Due to other reviews that there was too much dressing..I cut the dressing in halve. Perfect. Also had some kalamati olives so tossed them in. Our guests scraped the latter clean!!

King Ranch Chicken Casserole I
Marilyn, This recipe was concocted at the King Ranch in Texas. Thus it became known as King Ranch Chicken. There are many versions circulating but one important factor. ALWAYS USE CORN TORTILLAS. Flour becomes more soggy and mushy. In Texas we used cream of chicken soup mixed with Rotel tomatoes and always tore the tortillas up. It is best refrigerated overnight before baking as the flavors meld better that way.
