About this Cook
I am mother of 2 boys,a wife and elementary school cook. I love to entertain and try new recipes. And yes, I do read cookbooks, in bed, like some people read novels.
My favorite things to cook
Just about anything. Home canned pickles, jams. Breads are a favorite and Christmas cookies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hubby and I have been decorating cut-out Christmas cookies since before we had children. Now the boys help and it has become a holiday tradition.
My cooking triumphs
Authentic Austrian Apple Strudel, Grophens (polish doughnuts) pork roast and knodels as good as my mom's, rolls as good as my nana's.
My cooking tragedies
Chocolate carmels for my husbands last birthday, what a dissapiontment. Carmels that were so hard they would have broken your teeth off. (turns out the candy thermometer was way off)

Jamie's Minestrone
I used a 28 oz can crushed tomatoes, 1 T.dried basil and thyme and one large unpeeled red potato. No wine, or spinach super flavors, next time I'll make it the day before. Then it will be super amazing!

Chicken Andouille Gumbo
just made this for church Mardi Gras supper. Very tasty,smelled heavenly, everyone liked it however it was way too spicy for me. But i've been told i'm a whimp. Will make again at home with less spicy sausage, and less cayenne
