About this Cook
I'm 79 years young, retired and love to cook, sew and crochet doll clothes, surf the net and visit with my internet friends; talk to my grandkids on a monthly basis. Three grand kids live in Arkansas; two live in California, 1 in Oklahoma and 1 in Iowa. One great-grand kid lives in California, Seven live in Arkansas, 4 in Iowa and 2 live in Oklahoma.
My favorite things to cook
COOKIES!!! and dinners for two.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My parents were from Poland. My children's father's parents had a mixture of Scottish, Irish, English and Potawatamie Indian. My oldest son's wife's family were from Arkansas of Irish descent. My youngest son's wife family were a mixture of italian, Greek and French...so we all enjoyed a variety of foods which we prepare for family reunions, picnics and the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
At age 9, I finally made a pie crust that was light and flaky...not like the rubber ball I'd made before! So far all of the pie crusts have been great!
My cooking tragedies
Spinach souffle

Ham It Up Spaghetti
I tried this recipe for dinner, but made one change. I didn't have angel hair pasta, so I used whole grain linguine. It was great! My husband doesn't normally care for dishes containing pasta - but he had 2 helpings of this one and wanted to know when I was going to make it again. Thanks for sharing!!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
I wish I could give this recipe 10 stars! I tried it exactly as printed. I was lucky enough to get the first bowl, as I never got anymore. My husband kept going back to the crockpot and refilling his bowl until it was all gone. Now I make a double batch every 2 weeks. Thanks so much for shring.
