About this Cook
For my wedding my mom gave me a cookbook, she was a good cook but didn't teach us girls. that was 45 years ago. I cooked every day and no-one died. the kids grew up and because of my career I didn't cook much for 25 years. Then we retired and I was really worried about having to cook everyday. I watched the TV shows, made friends with expert cooks, acquired lots of cookbooks and searched the web for recipies. Friends and family think I know how to cook well. I don't think so, but we qre not starving and every now and then I turn out a masterpiece.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, bread, desert, casseroles, salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
duck for christmas.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
lots, but nobody ever got sick.

Potato Dumplings
Just tried this recipe and loved the ease and speed of preparation. The self rising flour is very important. I didn't peel the potatoes which gave the dumplings a less smooth texture, which we like. For our german dinner party this week I'll add some spices. The meal was great. We'll fry the sliced leftover dumplings for breakfast. My mother used to add a cube of Salami, instead of the croutons. It was the surprise for us, since meat was scarce in those days.
