About this Cook
50 years old. I'm an O.K. cook. With a recipe. Anything I cook usually turns out well. I have one child still living at home (19)when not at college, 2 grown children and 3 grandbabies. I've been fighting stage IV cancer for 3 years. I found out today that the thing that is most irritating to me is someone that critiques a persons spelling/grammar that they don't even know. Makes me realize there are more important things in life to be judging others for. I want to learn to make beautiful cakes. I love to watch Ace of Cakes and the other one (Italian family), can't remember the name.
My favorite things to cook
I like to make cakes, enchiladas, chili and the basics. I want to cook more when I start feeling better.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas. I make a beef tenderloin (just bake it long enough to cook on the outside), slice it thin and then put it in the slow cooker with au' jus' and eat it on those really small rolls. We have that with all snack foods, potato skins, ham roll ups, water chestnuts soaked in teriyaki, then rolled in brown sugar (Oh yes, first wrap in bacon, then roll) and put under the broiler until the bacons done. Love that time of year.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken pesto, the best enchilada I've ever tasted (just my opinion, my mom has a different recipe she likes. I'm not a fan). Made my grandaughter a bear cake for her 5th birthday. I surprised myself, it turned out pretty cute!
My cooking tragedies
When I was 24 I put half a bottle of wine in the spaghetti sauce. I didn't realize then that when you used wine, you reduced it. Into the garbage that went and we ordered pizzas.

Quick Peanut Butter Cookies
Thank you, thank you, thank you! I forgot I had to make cookies for an event my husband is going to at noon today. This is such a quick and easy AND good recipe!

Old Man's Turkey Noodle Soup
Seriously, this was the best turkey (I used chicken) soup recipe I've ever used. All of the spices were right on which is the most important thing in this recipe. I used chicken thighs and breast instead of turkey and I cut the water by half and used vegetable stock for the rest. I will use this recipe from now on. EXCELLENT!
