About this Cook
Software Test Manager by day -- working with a bunch of Engineers.:-) Mom and wife by night! Cooking is one of those things that I really enjoy, but don't have enough time to do every day. I'm lucky enough to have a supportive husband. I'm an only child. I collect antiques, although that has slowed down a lot since I am running out of room! Depression glass was one of the first collections. I like to tell my friends that I don't eat "knees" .. meaning animals with four legs, fur and big brown eyes. As a result of this, I end up adapting a lot of recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Appetizers, BBQ and sides. Nothing would be complete without a complimentary cocktail !
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fried Turkey, Garlic Cheese Grits, Pierogies, Crispy Cream Donut Casserole, Layered Salad, Pickled Meat, Peanut Butter Ice Cream Pie, Kahlua Brie,
My cooking triumphs
Really? Triumph seems like a strong word. Can't think of one off the top of my head. I enjoy feeding friends on weekends during the summer months. We enjoy hanging out on the deck, and having cocktail hour.
My cooking tragedies
Almost anything that I bake.

THE Pasta Salad
I don't understand what all THE big fuss is about. Followed the recipe exactly. This dish does not have a lot of flavor. Needs something.

Martha's Hot Almond Spread
Always good for a party. You can add some garlic powder as well. I use a small oblong glass pan to heat it in.
