My Sister and I
About this Cook
Born, raised and still living in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, I've been cooking for over 35 years. I am a Red Hatter and in my spare time, volunteer at the Seattle/King County Humane Society. I also work full-time as an Administrative Assistant. I am also a member of a small group called, The Dining Divas, (circa 2005). We are four strong and have tried everything from Brazillian to Irish Pubs and Sushi to Native American and Moroccon with Belly Dancing thrown in for good measure. Every month is a different type of cuisine or restaurant.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is anything. I love trying new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family lives out of state so we don't have family gatherings now.
My cooking triumphs
Getting my great nieces and great nephew to like Shrimp Coleslaw. Unfortunatly they only like mine, not their mother's or their grandmother's even though they use the exact same ingredients. The children say, "It's not like Aunties!" It's really easy to make, just open a bag of coleslaw, add a bottle of your favorite slaw dressing (or make your own. – I like to use Kraft). Add a can of small Bay Shrimp and PRESTO, you have a slaw that good enough for company or to use at a ‘potluck’ supper.
My cooking tragedies
Making Thanksgiving for my late father-in-law and late step-mother-in-law. The turkey fell off the oven rack to the floor while I was trying to baste it. I picked it up and rinsed it off and put it back into the oven but they didn't even wait to see how it tasted. They decided to take their motorhome and scamper off. P.S. The turkey turned out great. My husband and I had a lot of turkey leftovers.

Mom's Cucumbers
YUMMY! I tried it before it was chilled and it was good. I tried it again after it chilled for an hour, it was even better. I used Splenda instead of the sugar, slice the onions in half-moon slices and added chopped tomatoes and the only salt I used was celery salt and no water. To make a presentation I used a veggie peeler to take thin slices of peel off and then ran the tines of a fork down the side of cucmber to make a design; looks great when sliced. Will try with Apple-Cider vinegar next time.

I didn’t have green peppers so I used celery, onions, garlic, and carrots, chopped fine and sautéed, and then cooked ground beef until no longer pink. Then I added one can of diced no-salt tomatoes, one can Pork n’ Beans (didn’t have Ranch Style Beans), and ½ teaspoon kosher salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. I cut some roasted corn off of one cob and added that, then added the sliced potatoes and cooked until tender. I then added my husband’s secret ingredient, 1 tablespoon ketchup plus 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce. Then added one tablespoon chopped fresh Marjoram and Basil and served. Very good. Though on thinking back, I would have called it, Ground Beef Stew.

Fruit and Vegetable Pork
GREAT! My husband, who doesn't like Sauerkraut, loved it. I browned the chops and then removed. Sautéed the onions with bacon and then added back chops and topped with the sauerkraut mixture. Because I'm Diabetic, I used Splenda Brown Sugar Blend instead of regular B.S. in the sauerkraut. I garnished it with chopped Pecans.
