About this Cook
I am a 40 yr. old stay at home mom. I had my daughter in 2005. I met the man I love recently and his son. We are residing in Bethalto, IL and couldn't be happier
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook very old recipes. I am currently trying some found in a recipe book that was the chef in the white house during Abe Lincoln stay in presidency. Southern cooking is a passion.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Nothing fat or sugar free that is for sure! Well am trying to watch the carbs/ and sugar now that Dan and I are diabetic, so am experimenting, changing the recipes I love into something more healty
My cooking triumphs
Cooked an entire Thanksgiving meal for over 60 people by myself... and did the clean up by myself too :-(
My cooking tragedies
First time I made gravy I used baking soda instead of corn starch

Macaroni and Tomatoes
Grandma made this, but instead of noodles, she poured the tomato mixture over cubed bread. I made this. Tastes like it should. But I will stick to the method that gets it on the table faster: a can of stewed tomatoes mixed in with two boxes of prepared mac and cheese. Sounds nasty to me too, but the kids can't get enough of it. LOL!

Best Lemonade Ever
There is always going to be some people who find it too sweet, some that will find it too tar, but this is a good basic recipe. Too sweet? Cut the sugar and add lemon. Too tart? Add more sugar. Just play with it until it suits you, but like I said, it is a good basic recipe. I like it the way it is. I garnish with slices of lemon in the pitcher.

Zucchini Jelly
Same recipe my grandma used, except she made it with apricot jello and kept it in the freezer. It is also good on ice cream! Grandma has the recipe boiling for 6 minutes.
