About this Cook
Married, studied Foods and Nutrition at IUP, have 3 sons husband and two Rottweilers.
My favorite things to cook
Since moving to Southern CA, I have changed my tastes quite a bit. I eat healthier (mostly) and use spices to a greater extent.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We love to entertain, usually small groups--6-10. I take a personal interest in trying to make my guests feel very welcome. Meals always include appetizers and dessert!!

Orange Drop Cookies IV
These are a lot like cookies I made all during my family's growing years, (I had lost the recipe in many moves,,,) I love them...need lots of willpower to keep from eating too many of them! It is warm where I live, and I keep them in the fridge--even in the winter--to keep icing from getting soft.!

American Potato Salad
OKAY. Very good. But in my opinion, all potato salad ( and for the record, macaroni salad) HAS to have a little mustard in it to give it the "edge!"

Gluten-Free Thai Chicken Soup
This was yummy. We will definitely have it again. Changes required: couldn't locate the agave nectar, but it really seemed to lack nothing! Used lime juice, but no lime garnish. Otherwise, made it as written.
