About this Cook
I'm a widow and cook for myself and a relative who is a kidney patient.
My favorite things to cook
Christmas cookies because my mom always made a big deal out of making them with us kids (and then hiding them from us so there'd be some left for Christmas day). I also enjoy making and eating comfort foods...soups, stews, bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big turkey-with-all-the-trimmings holiday meals.
My cooking triumphs
I learned to "bake" cakes over campfires on backpacking trips.
My cooking tragedies
I am incapable of cooking either butter beans OR oatmeal without making a boilover mess. And I don't have any interest whatsoever in making my own pie dough or homemade biscuits.

Comforting Cube Steaks
This was very good and my steaks were nice and tender. My deviations from the recipe: I browned them in my cast iron skillet then deglazed the pan with a bit of wine, added the rest of ingredients and popped in the oven for an hour and a half. For soda I used club soda and my soup was one cr. mushroom and one cr. celery. I served over rice and everyone liked it. It was a bit salty so I may substitute a real onion for onion soup mix and use low sodium soups. Oh, I added in a can of mushrooms too because, why not? My gravy was very thick and plentiful.

Green Beans with Cherry Tomatoes
I made these for Thanksgiving dinner yesterday. Everyone enjoyed. I added a slice of leftover bacon and thought it a distraction.

Tiny Pecan Tarts
While they were very tasty, this recipe did not work out well for me. There was so much filling (I believe it was due to the 4 eggs rather than two other recipes call for) that I made a half recipe of crust just to use it up...and that STILL didn't work out right.
