About this Cook
A mother of four children that I've for the most part raised on my own. Where does the time go? I only have one left at home, when my third one graduates this spring 2010. I love to read, walk, listen to music, flowers (without the neighborhood cats pooping in my flowerbeds!), cook. Hardly watch any t.v. but need to catch up on some movies -- the library is the source!
My favorite things to cook
Pretty much anything that doesn't require ingredients you need to buy but hardly ever use.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The older I get, the less I like spaghetti sauce. My dad introduced me to canned tomatoes and cooked ground beef over pasta.
My cooking triumphs
Creamy Eggs on Toast. My kids love this. It is just basically white sauce with cheese and chopped hard boiled eggs, ladled onto toast and eaten with a glass of juice.
My cooking tragedies
Pie crusts are a challenge for me; I dread it. I am just too impatient. Yeast breads are another thing I need to work on.

Tangy Cucumber and Avocado Salad
This was delicious! Me & my 13 yr old daughter both enjoyed it (without the cilantro).

Sweet Dinner Rolls
I don't have a bread machine either, so I basically followed the directions of summer_lover (the 2nd Most Helpful review) AND baked at 375 for 15 min. I did put in 2 c. of whole wheat flour and then only needed about 1 1/4 c. white flour. Did not make into crescents. After rolling into balls, I let rise another 30 min. I have not baked yeast bread/rolls in over 20 years and these turned out WONDERFUL!

Cucumber Sandwich
We marinated the cuke slices in Paul Newman's viniagrette. Didn't have lettuce or pepperoncini. Sliced the avocado. Lightly toasted our 100% whole wheat bread. Talk about a delicious veggie sandwich! My 18 year old and 12 year old really liked this, as did I.
