About this Cook
Married since 1993, husband is a diabetic so I have to create recipes low on sugar and carbs. Substituting Splenda for sugar allows him to have some of his favorites like pumpkin pie and cornbread. Also, because it is made from sugar, it browns, unlike when I use Sweet 'N Low.
My favorite things to cook
I would have to say Liver and Onions. My son-in-law and my other daughters boyfriend claimed not to like Liver, but, when I cook it, they come back for seconds like my husband. It just tickles me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother would always make a jello salad from raspberry jello, and add an orange, an apple and a cup of cranberries - all of which had been run through the grinder - to it. We all loved it.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking an entire Christmas dinner on the gas grill when the oven went out. I even cooked the pies on the grill.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make bread. It came out hard as a rock, did not raise and tasted terrible. My biscuits are the same way. That is why my husband makes the biscuits.

Miniature Cheesecakes
Made these in cupcake paper cups and served them at a social. The vanilla wafers I bought were too small, so I had to crush them and then add some melted margarine to make it bind. Found a small enough glass to press the crust down instead of using my fingers. Also added a tad more vanilla as I was using imitation. Each cup took 1/4 cup of mixture. Even the mixing bowl tasted good. So fast and simple and inexpensive.

Egg Drop Soup II
Tastes very good and is quite simple to make. Used arrowroot (instead of cornstarch) for a clearer base, added salt and pepper for additional flavoring.

Waldorf Salad II
A little too tart from the lemon juice and I added some coconut to it. Later, I read the reviews and noticed that some people had added sugar to sweeten it. Will have to try it again with the sugar.
