About this Cook
I grew up around some of the greatest cooks. My grandmother on my mom's side was from France & her sister married a man from Italy. My dad grew up on a farm. So I grew up with the best of all kinds of food! I love cookbooks. There are at least 500 in my collection along with tons of clipped & downloaded recipes!
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook all kinds of stuff! I'm game to try just about anything!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I don't know that we had "traditions" but we always had great spreads at the holidays. Always gave thanks for all our blessings. Time around the dinning table was and is wonderful.
My cooking triumphs
My husband & I have won a couple of contests for appetizers. That was fun!
My cooking tragedies
My mom & I were making a muffin recipe that had different substitutions you could add, the problem was we didn't omit one thing before we add others! We ended up with muffins that even the garbage disposer couldn't grind up! I think we discovered a new paving material! We laughed about that for years! Not that tragic!!!

Spicy Vegetarian Lasagna
I fixed this last night and my husband, Rick & I liked it. I did substitute a squash for some of the peppers and added some garlic. For the water I used chicken stock. I figured that would give it more flavor. I can see using different veggies in this. Thanks for a great recipe idea.

Honey Mustard Grilled Chicken
I made this last night and my husband Rick & I really liked it. We grilled breast, leg & thigh. The sauce has a nice tang from the mustard and sweet from the honey. I did add a splash of beer to rinse out the mustard bottle. Didn’t want to waste the mustard and not water the flavor down! I think this sauce would be good on pork too. Thanks for a good idea.

Spinach with Apples and Pine Nuts
I made this the other night and my husband, Rick & I liked it. I didn’t have the pine nuts. The store I was at didn’t have them! I will use them the next time. I did add a bit more garlic than called for. Thanks, it is always fun to try new recipes.
