About this Cook
My wonderful husband that I have been together since 1976. We pretty much have each other's likes and dis-likes down now. I enjoy cooking for him as well as my father-in law wholives with us & our young adult son (when he manages to be home for dinner).
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I enjoy making my tried and true favorites, but also like to try out new recipes.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot roll out a pie crust to save my life. I stood at my Mother's side throughout my entire childhood and watched her roll out the most perfect crusts you ever saw. Every pie was delicious and absoluetly beautiful. With all those hours at her elbow you would think I would have picked up a trick or two... however, that is definately not the case. But I keep trying. That is the trick to becoming a good cook. Keep trying!!

Raspberry and Almond Shortbread Thumbprints
I thought these were OK. My husband and son each took just one bite.

Marshmallow and Lime Gelatin Salad
Loved this recipe. Tripled it & took to a big potluck. I did change the way I put the salad together. After reading all the comments about people not having this jello salad set up properly, I decided to add the jello to the hot soda & melted marshmellow mixture. (Jello needs a hot liquid to properly disolve.) Then I creamed together the room temp cream cheese & mayo with my hand mixer before stirring it into the mostly cooled soda, marshmellow and fully disolved lime jello mixture. Lastly I folded in all the other ingredients until well blended (I substited shredded cocconut for the chopped pecans since I was taking to a putluck & some are allergic to nuts). It set up beautifully and I had wonderful comments and even a few requests for the recipe.

Tomatillo Soup
this was pretty good. I did add 3 cans of white beans & only pureed a small amount of the soup.
