About this Cook
I'm a pastor's wife with 3 kiddies. I love to cook, bake, and try new recipes, which proves to be a little difficult with small children who are easily freaked out by visible vegetables and spices in their food. Our church families have blessed us repeatedly by bringing us FABULOUS meals after the birth of our kids or during hard times, so I like to try and return the favor by taking meals to people who have just welcomed new babies or have been sick or in the hospital. I'm always looking for tasty new casserole, salad, and dessert recipes that travel well or can be prepared in advance and cooked later!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake chocolate chip cookies the most, and also love to try new Mexican recipes and soups.
My favorite family cooking traditions
For Easter and Christmas, my Grandma, Mom, Aunt, 2 cousins and I get together and make verenike (a german favorite - a noodle/dough filled with dry cottage cheese, boiled, fried, and served with white ham gravy) for the family festivities. It's fun to all be together and to try to gather all Grandma's cooking wisdom that we can. She's the master!
My cooking triumphs
My chocolate chip cookies are really to die for, and I'm thinking that the banana sour cream bread in the oven right now is going to work out pretty nicely!
My cooking tragedies
My biggest tragedies usually involve layer cake recipes and the unfailing knack I have for never NEVER being able to get them out of the pan in one piece. Never, I tell you. I also feel that it's tragic that I don't have quite the grocery budget I'd like. We'd eat like kings if only we had the money . . .

Mock Filets
This was good, although more like meatloaf than steak. We grilled them and I added a little Worcestershire and garlic salt to the meat mixture.

Famous Pork Chops
My husband said, "Let's only make pork chops like this from now on." So I'd say it was a hit! I only needed 2 eggs, cut the butter in half, flipped them half-way thru baking, removed cover for the last 10 minutes and broiled on low for about 5 minutes just to finish browning them up nicely!

Mama's Potato Salad
Sorry Mom, but now my potato salad is better than yours! Sadly I had no horseradish, but without, this is the best regular potato salad recipe ever! When I first tasted it, I thought it was WAY too mustardy, but it mellowed out in the fridge and was fabulous! I added some chopped celery for extra crunch.
