About this Cook
After being single for 25 years, I have met and fallen in love with a wonderful man worth waiting for! We are slowly, but purposely building out new life together. I am blessed!
My favorite things to cook
I love to entertain and often have friends from church to dinner. My potluck dishes are the first to go!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I LOVE Thanksgiving! For decades I have cooked for the clan, but now I live away, so I have to re-create with friends and local family. Still, it is the All-American holiday that is only about family and friends.
My cooking triumphs
I have catered many parties including my niece's wedding for 120, graduations, birthdays, etc. Love cooking for a crowd and have the art of it mostly perfected. It is all about the recipes chosen and the presentation. Also, have the kitchen clean and the dishwasher empty at the start of every party - the rest falls in to place. Sit back and enjoy, and don't point out any failures!
My cooking tragedies
Not many, but I would never tell.

Texas Ranch Potato Salad
Just made it and used mayo and sour cream. Added freeze-dried chives, parsley and custom shallot/dill/herb blend. Serving it Sunday, so have reserve dressinf to add before serving. Used bacon grease over warm potatoes before mixing it. My guy loves his Ranch dressing, and he took a HUGE bowl home tonight. I think his family will love it with Easter ham.

2-Ingredient Peanut Butter Fudge
I made this for my grandson's birthday request and included ingredients so he could make it as well. Easy and for what it is, it is pretty good. I still prefer a more traditional fudge recipe.

Grandma Ople's Apple Pie
Okay...what everyone says is true. This is over and above for an apple pie! Adding the syrup after assembly is intriguing. My nephews and grandson love my traditional apple pie, so I will not give up on it. This one is a great addition to the collection. I will continue to use mixed apples to get different flavors and textures. Grandma knew what she was doing, though!
