About this Cook
I live in a very small town. I also live in a very small house. It's just me & my roomie/best friend, but my kitchen is SO small...being adventurous in there is hard. I love to cook anything and everything, and you never know what you might be served when you show up. Often I go to my mom's & cook there, as she has much more counter space. She doesn't mind though :) People tell me I should be a chef....though I have the feeling it isn't so much to do with my cooking as it is the fact that I love to cook, just hate doing the dishes!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking in the slow cooker. Preparing something yummy and just letting it cook all day is so great. I also love pasta dishes. Anything I can spice up is great too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays are my favorite time of year. Even though there are just 3 of us now, I still insist on buying the 20lb. turkey, making at least 3 pies, and having all the yummy things we had when there we 2 or 3 times as many people around the table. I love my jell-o squares with whipped cream right on my plate with the mashed potatoes....lol
My cooking triumphs
I have been preparing Thanksgiving & Christmas dinners since I was 18. I felt mom had been doing it long enough & it was my turn & I love doing it! I am so thankful everything comes out so great! I was very proud of myself that at a young age I learned how to do things, make things from 'scratch'. And I loved being taught how to make homemade bread, pickles, & jam. Things like that are important I think.
My cooking tragedies
There have been quite a few i will admit, but that is how we learn! It has happened more than once in this house that someone will come in & I will say...well, you might not wanna eat that...sometimes I go nuts with spices & different ingredients lol

American Chop Suey II
This is how my mother has always made American Chop Suey. I make it several different ways, but it is really good with the tomato soup.

Hamburger Soup I
I just made this tonight. I wanted something quick & easy to throw together for a chilly Halloween night. I didn't have beef bouillon so I replaced the water with beef broth and no corn because my friend can't have it. Other than that, it was the same. And I LOVED it! I never would eat it in the past, but thought why not and tried it & I am glad I did! there were 3 of us & there is enough left for 1 good-sized bowl! Will be making this again!
