About this Cook
I was raised with a whole bunch of good cooks in the kitchen. I picked up a little something from everyone. I have to credit my mother in law for getting me started in canning fruits, vegetables and jams. Now it is my favorite thing to do with anything! I make a wonderful home made pickled asparagus and a sweet banana pepper butter that is awesome! I love trying anything new and more often than not put my own spin on it.
My favorite things to cook
I love to grille, marinade, bake and can. My husband will try anything which makes life really easy. I love anything from my garden or anyone else's as well. I would like to learn more about Asian cooking, Italian and Middle Eastern.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Steaks, turkey, any kind of beef. My grandmother made pies that people came for miles to have. We picked berries, fruits etc. so they were fresh, homemade and her crust was to die for. My love of pie baking came from her. My mom did a mean beef roast and her christmas chocolates were the best ever!
My cooking triumphs
My canning recipes are my triumphs. I have lots of folks ask me for them and ask me to help them. It is a blast to get together with friends and family and make a real party out of the process.
My cooking tragedies
No tragedies to report so far. Everything is pretty good, some better than others.

Garam Masala Spice Blend
Wow...I am from Yakima too..living in Las Vegas! I knew that I had to try cooking something with this delectable concoction. My husband and I love curries of any kind so this was the next logical step. Thanks for the wonderful recipe. I recently bought a coffee grinder at a yard sale for $2 and this will be it's maiden voyage. Thanks again Michelle...Happy Spices!

Jimmy Dean Sausage Stuffing
I took this recipe and made as directed. Then I rolled the stuffing into meatball size balls and baked it for 30 minutes on 350...they turned out awesome and gave it a little character as well. Sprinkle with parsley or paprika for some color and it's just something different with chicken or turkey. Great basic recipe though!

Banana Muffins II
I used Splenda baking substitute as I am a diabetic, I also added 1/2 cup cranberries and a 2 tblsp orange zest along with vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg..voila! Wonderful for quick breakfast and they froze beautifully in sandwich bags for morning rush hour!
