About this Cook
I was raised by a mother who didn't cook however when I married at the age of 17, my new mother in law took me under her wing and taught me everything she knew about cooking. She was an amazing cook and I the lucky recipient of her wealth if knowledge !
My favorite things to cook
A few of our family's all time favorites are " Chinese Egg Rolls, Wok Lasagna, Swiss Steak, Chicken Kiev, Quiches, Chicken Enchiladas, Spaghetti and a myriad of wondrous soups ( baked potato, chicken corn tortilla, tortelli, 16 bean, beef barley, minnestrone, chili .... )
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Christmas and Thanksgiving recipes have been passed down for generations !
My cooking triumphs
Chocolate eclairs and cream puffs
My cooking tragedies
Boiling eggs for egg salad... forgot about them and went outside . An hour later ... Oh My !!! Eggs and sulfur smell FILLED the house, the pan was ruined ... ;Twas a real mess !

Beef Barley Vegetable Soup
This is a special recipe ! I make a swiss steak the day before, sauteeing it in flour and covering it with stewed tomatoes and a can of golden mushroom soup). I cook that in an electric skillet all day and when it's done, I take a moderately large piece off of it and save to make this soup the next day ! I , too use beef broth and water with 1 bouillon cube per cup. Tomatoes and green chilis are wonderful and all the spices you love ! We eat this in bread bowls and sprinke the top with fresh parmesan. Lovely , nutritious and ever so satisfying !
