About this Cook
My cooking triumphs
I had my family over for Easter one year. I made a ham with a maple glaze, garnished with pineapple rings and cherries. When I took it out of the oven my granddaughter's eyes went wide and she gasped, "Oh gramma, that's sooooo beautiful, you have to take a picture of it". It tasted as good as it looked too!
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at a turkey dinner for Christmas. Turkey was not completely thawed and never did cook all the way thru. I even ruined the instant mashed potatoes. We sat down, tried to eat and my husband, normally highly critical took a couple of bites, said "This is great. Gosh look how late it is, didn't we promise your sister we would stop by?" Fortunately my sister had lots of leftovers from her delicious dinner, so my family did not go hungry that night.

We usually use half champagne (or sparkling cider for the kids) and half orange juice and add some raspberries to the glass. Yum!

Shepherd's Pie Complete
This is just a quick and easy meal that tastes great. I replaced the American cheese with shredded cheddar, added mushrooms, made a little extra potatoes and cut the gravy in half. Made it for my monthly meal that I cook for a homeless shelter and it was a huge hit.
