About this Cook
I've been interested in cooking for a long time - I was once known as the "Queen of Box Cooking" when my daughter was younger and I didn't have (actually - make) the time. I am actively changing my image and now make good food from real ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
Slow cooker recipes (for busy work days) and new things. I especially love making something new (which I do a lot) that turns out great (thanks AllRecipes!). I love the comfort of knowing that an egg does what it should, that things rise when they're supposed to, that spices taste like they should. It gives me peace at the end of a hard work day to come home and create something special; even though I think I'm too tired, once I get started I go to a peaceful place and viola! something good comes of it. Nothing like it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving! Christmas cookies, birthdays. I love cooking something special for my family
My cooking triumphs
Lately there have been a lot, thanks to this site. I am learning more every time I cook and getting a handle on the nuances of good cooking!
My cooking tragedies
In the past, too many to mention, now that I'm older, not so much. Yay!

Italian Sausage Soup with Tortellini
I used kale instead of whatever veggies, was delish!

Easy Batter Fruit Cobbler
SO easy for a non-baker like me! Tried blueberry the first time and blackberry the second time. Yum! Will try doubling the recipe, but don't like doughy cobbler, so hoping it turns out as beautiful as before. Five stars for easy prep and great taste! Thanks for sharing!

Rice Casserole
Excellent! I followed others, making rice halfway through then baking in the oven. My hubs and I totally loved it!
