About this Cook
I have been married all my life, LOL.. Starting cooking when I was 16 as I was married at that time and had to learn on my own. So I don't use exact measurements, I just throw and go and then smell. I haven't made very many bad meals. I can generally salvage them if they don't turn out to spec. I am up to cooking anything. I will try just about everything.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook Mexican food, soups & stews. Things we love to eat the most of.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian food is a big family traditional meal here. We Also have Turkey dinner for Thanksgiving and for Christmas we do the "Mexican Food Blowout". YUMMOOOOhhhh... You might ask what in the world is Mexican Food Blowout? Well it is like going to a buffet of Mexican food that is fresh and hot and ready to eat! We generally have anywhere between 16 to 22 people come for it. No one wants to miss this meal....
My cooking tragedies
I deal with this from time to time due to the humidity where I live can sometimes give me fits with my bread. If the humidity is high sometimes it takes awhile to rise. Crazy I know but sometimes my bread is just Ok.. Most times it is good due to I'm careful when I bake it..

Yellow Squash
I made this tonight. It was pretty tasty. I added onions that had been sauteed in a little olive oil. Plenty of garlic. Then after I drained it well & mashed it all up well it was just too watery. So I stuck it in a pan with crushed crackers on top 350 for 15 minutes. And it was pretty darn yummy that way. Helped to bake out alot of water. I will make this again and again, but I will for sure put it in the oven after I smash it all up.

Fresh Pear Pie
Gosh this was really good. It is not icky sweet. I think it is just perfect the way it is. I can't imagine it any other way. We have pear trees galore where we live and Nobody around here will pick the local trees, so I generally put up about 600 pounds of pears. So this is just a perfect pear pie for that cold winters day like today. Excellent!

Great Pumpkin Dessert
Wow! My pumpkin Pie for Thanksgiving has just lost its place. My husband said, this is better than any pumpkin pie I have ever eaten. Lets not have pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving ever again and just eat this instead. I said sounds like a winner to me. I made this EXACTLY as stated! This will be not only my recipe for Thanksgiving now but will also be my Potluck dinner recipe to take in the Fall/Winter. LOVE IT!!!!
