About this Cook
I was born of Baptist missionary parents on the island of St.Lucia in the West Indies. In 1978 my husband and I and 2-yr-old daughter came to Brazil as missionaries, where we still are. We now have 4 daughters (and some great sons-in-law), 1 son and 8 grandchildren. The Lord has blessed us in every way!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make casseroles and other foods made in the oven...especially breads!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pizza on Saturday & spaghetti on Sunday! On Christmas morning, cinnamon rolls are a must-along with hot chocolate.
My cooking triumphs
My cole slaw is probably the dish that has gotten requested more than any other. But I can make a pretty mean whole wheat bread/rolls, too, and my children think that my pizza is the best anywhere(they're prejudiced, I believe).
My cooking tragedies
The first(and worst!)was during our 1st year of marriage. I pressure-cooked liver!!! No more comments needed...!

Oatmeal Chocolate Coconut Macaroons
I agree with some of the above reviews, that it seems to have a bit too much liquid, also it's a bit too sweet for my taste. So I think that adding a bit extra of oats should take care of both of those things.

Sweet Candied Orange and Lemon Peel
I made mine with tangerine peels. Don't know if that makes a difference but mine were a bit on the bitter side. I scraped off the white pith before I cooked the peels.
