About this Cook
I'm a recently retired law office manager, married, three sons and 3 1/2 grandchildren. My husband & I like to travel (all 50 states & 16 countries), entertain, and spend time with family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
I prefer appetizers and main courses. I'm not really a dessert person so if I receive an offer from a guest to bring dessert, I jump at it :) A variety of appetizers with a green salad is always a hit but I also enjoy casseroles, beef and chicken and some fish.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every autumn I make a large pot of Basque vegetable soup for friends & family. Every Christmas I make my cheese roll and peppermint bark. In the winter I also make my mother's banana bread and gingerbread for friends and family.

Perfect Chicken
Very tasty. Dredging the chicken in cornstarch is a great idea. I've always used flour in the past but the cornstarch gave it a crispy lightness that is very appealing.
