About this Cook
Retired. Travelling is my favorite thing besides my grandchildren
My favorite things to cook
Cooking some ethnic foods, but love trying new recipes. Most difficult thing for me is to try and cook for two, but the freezer works.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to make dumplings. I don't bake so much anymore as we would weigh a ton! Cook as healthy as possible, omitting fats and making lots of salmon and fish during the week.
My cooking triumphs
Beef Stew is my triumph and everyone loves my spaghetti and meatballs.
My cooking tragedies
Making one of the antipasta salads from this website for a large party and it said to put it on a platter! Ha ha ha. I had to make it in a roasting pan. It made sooooo much.

Party Italian Wedding Soup
Best Wedding soup. I do cook the meatballs separately in some broth made with bullion to get rid of some fat. Throw the bullion broth out, along with the fat, after cooking. I did add my own meatball flavors, as did some others. Personal preference.

White Bean Chicken Chili
This is five stars! I always laugh at the ...'I liked it but"....remarks. It certainly isn't white bean chili if you add black beans! I had to substitute also. No Tomatillas and NO salsa verde...so...What is in Salsa? Hmmm..tomatoes, onions, cilantro, onion. garlic, etc. AND LIME JUICE! I added lime juice. Yummy. My whole family loves this chili and I will bel making it again and again.

The Best Chicken Salad Ever
Yum yum yum. I used some ranch creamy dressing and homemade slaw. I get a kick out of people who don't read right. It does not say to puree in food processor. Says to chop. I just hand chopped all and it turned out wonderful. Great on some multi grain bread!

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.
