Happy Grandma
About this Cook
I am 60 years old and have been married to and cooking for my husband Mike for 42 years. I have 2 grown sons who have given me 4 grandchildren.I love to crochet things for my grandchildren. I am a Christian and love to sing. I have been cooking since I was a teenager. I love to cook and I love to collect recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Baking is my true favorite. Anything Mexican and many Chinese recipes. I also love to make "concoctions" from whatever I have on hand.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was a wonderful cook but didn't teach me much. I use her recipes that she developed for Pumpkin Pie, Chocolate Chip Cookies & Texas Hash. I got married at 18 and have been developing my own cooking traditions. My great grandmother always made her famous Raisin Filled Cookies for Christmas. The dough has nutmeg and the filling has walnuts. I have made these a tradition for my family too. Big breakfasts on Christmas Morning.
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say my recipe for Baked Ziti I which was in the top ten recipes for months on end. Also the dozens of cookies I make each year at Christmas.
My cooking tragedies
I was making the Carmelized Baked Chicken Wings recipe from this site for my husband's 50th birthday open house when my oven decided to act up. It took forever for them to cook. I also ran out of desserts for that event. I knew I was in trouble when I saw people coming up with a slice of all three desserts on their plates.

Creamy Peanut Butter Fudge
This is absolutely the best peanut butter fudge I have ever made or tasted. The recipe is easy to make and makes a lot. Everyone that I served it to this Christmas loved it too.

Caramelized Baked Chicken
I made these for my husband's 50th birthday party in October. I ran out of these wings so quickly that I knew that they were terrific. I have made them for other parties and gatherings and they still are the first to disappear. EVERYONE loves them!!

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
