About this Cook
17 year brain cancer survivor, wife of 32 years with same husband, enjoys technology and reading, being with friends, hosting folks in my home. Retired school teacher of 15 years in Fairfax County VA. First grade teacher for 9 years and 6 years as the technology teacher and coordinator in my elem. school. Lived in Singapore for 5 years cementing my love of Asian food.
My favorite things to cook
Down home cooking that my mom cooked. Chicken, mashed potatoes, fresh veggies when available. Also enjoy grandma's specialties, like cream puffs, cheesecake and Xmas cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking Christmas cookies with my mom for a whole day after the Thanksgiving rush. Especially tiny thin sugar tarts. Moravian Sugar cake is my favorite food. My great aunt used to make the best sugar cakes in Lancaster PA. IMHO.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking for my bridge group in 2006. I was always appreciated when I hosted the group for a night of food and playing.
My cooking tragedies
#1:One Thanksgiving when I dropped the Thksgiving turkey on the floor while trying to transfer it from pan to platter. My Old English Sheepdog enjoyed it though. #2: When I melted a spatula in a chocolate mousse that I was preparing for a neighborhood dinner. A neighbor got a mouthful of plastic spatula.
