About this Cook
I team drive with my husband for a major trucking company. We go to all 48 states and Canada. We get a week at home for each 2 weeks out. We have 2 grown kids, 2 granddaughters and 1 grandson. I love to visit them when we are home as well as cooking, catching up on chores, reading and taking grandkid pictures.
My favorite things to cook
Chicken Enchilidas, stuffed peppers, pies, cakes, cookies, candy, green rice and anything else my husband gets hungry for.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big family Thanksgiving dinners where all my siblings and I meet at Mom's house and everyone brings so much food. It involves 4 generations now.
My cooking triumphs
I feel good about anything I cook that my husband and kids love.
My cooking tragedies
I can't {never could} cook a steak or roast that isn't tough, dried out and not worth much more than the trash. I have tried so many family suggestions, etc, but non ever work for me

Jefferson Davis Pie
This was one of my husbands favorite pies when he was a kid. It turned out as well as his Mother made. Thanks for the recipe.

California Italian Wedding Soup
This was so good. The Orzo was a bit hard to find but the finished soup was worth the extra effort. Even my grandkids liked it and that's a plus.
