About this Cook
Well, I was always told the way to a man's heart is through is stomach! Isn't that the truth! I enjoy cooking but my husband prefers to eat!
My favorite things to cook
Lasagna, chili, grilled chicken and steak
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having a big ol' turkey stuffed with all the fixins for Christmas and Thanksgiving!
My cooking triumphs
Making Perogies, like Grandma T can! They're almost as good... but they'll never be as good!
My cooking tragedies
The only thing that comes to mind was when I was preparing a nice meal and I had some steamed asparagus cooking with some baked chicken and a nice salad. The chicken was still raw (even after an hour) and I forgot to put water in my pot for the steamed asparagus! Needless to say, the salad never tasted so good until that night!

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
Healthy Version: I used 1 cup unsweetened applesauce (in place of oil), 1 whole egg and 3 egg whites (in lieu of 4 whole eggs) and it tastes just as good as the original! If anyone can figure out how to remove the sugar without loosing the taste, let me know! :) Nutritional Info (1 slice): 178 Cal, 0.4 fat, 8.7mg cholest., 10.7 sodium, 41.1g carbs, 1.2g fiber, 26.7g sugar, 2.9g fiber

Luscious Slush Punch
This is a great recipe. I made 6 large flower ice cubes using a shaped silicon muffin/cupcake pan and put them in the beverage container to keep the punch cold. It was so tasty and the hit of the party!

Marshmallow Fondant
Invest in a Kitchen Aid ... you'll need it! With that aside, this is an awesome recipe! Clean-up is a breeze and I should know, since my hand mixer quit working while I made this icing. So, with 1/2 mixed fondant icing, I dumped the rest on the counter, grabbed my latex-free gloves, slapped on some butter and kneaded away. I had to add additional food coloring since I was making 3 batches and my mixer burned up midway through the first and it blended in perfectly (yellow to orange). Will keep this on hand and adding a KA to my Christmas Wish List! :)
