About this Cook
I'm a vintage mama (1st and only child at 42). Married to my soulmate!
My favorite things to cook
I love anything I can put in the crock pot. I love to bake and adjust the ingredients as I go along.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cookies. Mom made fresh cookies every week for us kids.
My cooking triumphs
Croissants via Julia Child's recipe! It took me about 6 failed attempts to get it right, but I did it, just so I could say I did.
My cooking tragedies
While clarifying beef stock... after 8 hours of work... at the final step of straining the egg shells I drained out the soup & kept the shells - oops! Boy, was I mad at myself.

Hot Tamale Pie
I followed the recipe as written. The only difference I made was I cranked up the heat to 375 deg. and it baked up fine in about 25 minutes.

Roasted Mediterranean Chicken
I also followed others idea and 1/4'd the potatoes. I added some asparagus, just 'cause I had it, and I left out the additional oil, figuring the alfredo sauce was oily enough on its own. I used dried rosemary, so I only used a teaspoon. Left out the klamatas, but sprinkled some feta on the top about 5 min. before it was done. Nice & garlicky and the lemon juice really added great zing to it. I used frozen chicken chunks - next time I'll thaw and drain them beforehand - it made the sauce kinda watery.

Stuffed Green Peppers I
I doubled the receipe and used 1 lb. of italian sausage and 1 lb. of 93% lean ground beef. I also used red peppers instead of green. I stuffed a dozen peppers and will freeze half of them for another night.
