About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
DESSERTS! I'm learning traditional French cooking and loving every minute of it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother was an amazing cook. My only regret - she didn't use recipes! Now, my challenge is to re-create her best dishes from memory & by taste, trial & error.
My cooking triumphs
Hmmmmm......single-handedly preparing Thanksgiving dinner for 12 with about 2-days notice??? And it went off without a hitch!
My cooking tragedies
Paste-like mashed potatoes: the cooked potatoes got cold before getting mashed. At least I found out what went wrong and will NEVER make that mistake again! Oh, and my first experience making gravy for fried chicken...I used self-rising flour instead of regular flour. Guess what happened??

Banana Sour Cream Bread
For sure the best banana bread recipe EVER! I have substituted plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream with excellent results. Also, I use three (3) 9x7 inch loaf pans and bake @325 for approx. 1 hour, or until the "toothpick test" indicates doneness. Next time I will try adding chocolate chips since so many people are raving about that. Can't wait for those bananas to ripen up!

Chicken Asparagus Roll-Ups
This was a restuarant quality dish! I used extra asparagus by personal preference, and from other comments spread the sauce on the inside as well as the outside of the chicken breasts. I substituted plain greek yogurt for the mayo with prefect results - this was an amazing entree! Wish I could give it 10 stars!
