About this Cook
My grandparents owned a diner and grandma was the best cook I've ever known. My mother and grandmother taught me alot and I've been able to cook since I was a young child. I've always enjoyed serving others and have never been "afraid" to experiment with recipes,it's fun for me and I love to feed people!
My favorite things to cook
I like to try just about anything. I wouldn't know if I liked something unless I was willing to try it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to prepare holiday meals. Most celebrating involves food,family,friends and fellowship. I enjoy making Christmas cookies and candies with my husband and our children, it's quality time making special memories as well as treats, that is a true gift in itself.
My cooking triumphs
Being the one who prepares most of the holiday meals, there is a sense of accomplishment in planning and preparing Thanksgiving dinner, my mother's annual birthday tea party, our Christmas Eve open house and Christmas dinner and still have a sense of humor for the new year, I get the job done and I enjoy the experience of it all sincerely.
My cooking tragedies
When my husband and I were newly weds back in 1989 and we rented our first apartment I had a difficult time trying to adjust to using the apartment's 40 year old oven! I was to make 2 pumpkin pies for Thanksgiving dinner and that old stove caught my desserts on fire! I couldn't bring a "burnt offering" so I sadly brought 2 restaurant replacement pies 5 minutes before dinner. More of a comedy than a tragedy actually.

Broccoli Cheese Soup V
This was excellent!!! So quick and easy to make! I used broccoli florets, 1/2 & 1/2 in place of milk, added shredded sharp cheddar cheese and bacon bits and just used black pepper. My family LOVED this...said it was just as good if not better than any restaurant!
