About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Appetizers, soups, desserts
My favorite family cooking traditions
Squeezing lemons for my mother's lemon-meringue pies from childhood onward. And whipping the egg whites by hand for the meringue.
My cooking triumphs
An anniversary party for my husband and I on October 2, 2010 where all the main foods and desserts were prepared by me and no one was aware that I was capable of any type of cooking as the "baby of the family". They were all surprised, but my husband was not, he knew :-).
My cooking tragedies
Trial soups and a ponchartrain sauce (no madeira wine)that were made recently.

Taco Dip
Made exactly as described and it was fabulous, although a bit runny from the picante sauce. This recipe made me realize I would prefer meat so I guess mine will have 8 layers :)

Kool-Aid(R) Pie
A friend of mine taught me this recipe in the military 28 years ago in the mini graham cracker cups when we lived in the barracks and could not have a lot of groceries and did not have cars to go anywhere :-). I still make it today using the individual crusts (they come with little tops). An entire pie is too enticing, and I only use lemonade. Glad to see this recipe on here, it brought back memories.....

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
No cinnamon used, everytime a recipe calls for sugar I use Splenda, no 1 notices. Also added raspberries and few strawberries. Good antioxidants. Never enough to take to work the next day when these are made.
