About this Cook
I have been married 32 years to my high school sweetheart. We have 2 grown children and a great son-in-law.
My favorite things to cook
I don't think I have any favorite things to cook, I like to cook all of it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking cookies at Christmas time and preparing the usual goodies to give as gifts.
My cooking triumphs
I encouraged our children to help me cook and bake and now our daughter loves to try new recipes in her own kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
I once burned artichokes I was steaming and was so upset, I threw the whole dish, pot and all, out the back door!

Pecan Sandies
These are my son's new favorite cookie. The only thing I did different was substitute the margarine for half butter and half Crisco and I toasted the pecans. They disappear quickly at our house!

Pizza Dough III
This was very easy and took very little time. My family loved it. I baked the pizza on my baking stone; it didn't get brown on the bottom but it was very tasty and was sort of like a soft pretzel (my husband's favorite). I will use this recipe again. My daughter wants to make bread sticks from this recipe.

Chocolate Chip Crispy Cookies
This is a great family loves them. I added about 1 tablespoon of water, however, since the mixture was a little crumbly and used miniature chocolate chips. These disappeared quickly at my house!
