About this Cook
I am a happy Nana of 3 Grandkids. I love spending time with them & I have always loved cooking. My relatives we're of southern desent but I being a Northerner, couldn't take the hot spices so I have adapted recipes for the North.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook any food that interests me but am especially fond of stews. So much can be done with them & so many taste variations.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The only family southern recipe I've never tampered with was my Gramma's Vegetable stew ( as there was no need to ). Everyone who has a love of vegetables fell totally in love with this stew.
My cooking triumphs
Again, that would have to be my Gramma's Stew.
My cooking tragedies
I followed the recipe to a T for apple pie, except for the fresh apples. There was just too many so I used just enough to fill my pie tin level. I had just the right flavors & was so thrilled when I removed it from the oven. I never expected it to rise and be so beautifully golden brown. I was so proud, I couldn't wait for my family to arrive. I made a fresh pot of coffee & made sure everyone saw how beautiful my pie was before I cut into it. Finally, the time had arrived. I carefully sliced into my pie & placed the first serving on a saucer. Imagine my horror when I looked inside & saw that my fresh apples had baked down to nothing & my crust was a good 4 inches high. I learned that day why you need to pile the apples high & use all the recipe calls for.

Best Ever Popcorn Balls
My Husband, (The Baby), loved these popcorn balls. My Grandkids went crazy for them. The biggest surprize for me, was when my Father-in-law ate four in a row. Since everyone was so happy, I didn't change a thing. Thanks for a great recipe That's so quick & easy to prepare, with such a happy ending.
