About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was a little girl and my skills have definitely improved over the years. I cooked for a family of 6 for many years. All of my children are grown and on their own and I am alone now. It is a challenge to cook for one. I still enjoy cooking though and trying new recipes is a hobby of mine. I wish we had had the internet when I was raising children as I was always pouring over cookbooks looking for new things to make. This site is definitely one of my favorites and I enjoy trying new things all the time.
My favorite things to cook
Always looking for new healthy, low fat, nutritious ways to convert the old high fat recipes that I used to cook. Chicken is one of my favorites to cook and I must have 1,000 different ways to fix it. Always looking for new and inventive ways to get vegetables into my diet because I'm bad about getting enough.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I think the holidays are where our family has recipes that we just "have to have". Breakfast casserole, baked corn, oyster dressing, Spanish green beans, and of course the turkey. These are things that I had growing up, my kids had growing up and now my grand kids are growing up with them. I'm sure it will go on and on.

Mom's Red Scalloped Potatoes
I made these exactly as written and they were delicious. They did take about 1 1/2 hours to cook and I sliced them thin and divided into 2 containers, one of which I froze. Hoping that they hold up to the freezing. Next time I'll cut back on the butter some because with so much cheese it creates too much oil which separates out. I agree with another poster that these are Au Gratin potatoes, not scalloped. Scalloped potatoes don't have cheese.

French Bread Rolls to Die For
I made these in the bread machine on the dough cycle and after they went through the first rise I cut the dough into 12 pieces and put in large muffin tins. Let rise again and bake. Mmmmm good! They are so easy and I froze in small batches so that I could take them out, wrap in foil and warm in the oven. Tasted just as fresh as the first day. They are simple and light tasting. So yummy!!
