Fun With My Grand-Babies
Upside Down Pumpkin Cake
About this Cook
I am married for 8 years, and have two daughters from a previous marriage. I also have 5 beautiful grand-children. I work in the hospital, a certified nursing assistant. I am just now 50, and love to cook, especially trying new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
We mostly eat chicken, pork, beef... I like to cook Low Fat meals whenever I can. I don't like to fry anything. Except maybe bacon from time to time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to use my crock pot, never use it unless I am off that day. People do this, but I don't like leaving it on for a long time and not be home. Although it would be nice to do this and having dinner ready when I get home from work. Sometime I prepare meals the night before and have them the next day. I also love to re-heat leftovers, when there are some. For next day meals or just to freeze.
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say my holiday meals...Or meals I make for my daughters and their families. I get a lot of praise from son-in-laws. It's nice cooking for them. My daughters are always calling for tips on cooking. It flattery me, and my son-in-laws love it. Their wives are turning into really good cooks.
My cooking tragedies
First marriage, not such a good cook. Learning as I go....But after only a few years....I did great. my very first roast was so bad we gave it to the dog....She didn't even want it. Sad!!!

Italian Sausage, Peppers, and Onions
I made this delicious, quick and simple recipe...we loved it. I didn't put in the butter, just little water to keep it simmering. I also added a can of tomatoes and mushrooms. I added already cooked rigatoni noodles from another meal...Added them to make this an all around great one serving meal.

German Potato Salad
DELICIOUS, JUST LIKE MY MOM USE TO MAKE. ONLY THING IS I USED APPLE CIDAR VINEGAR, AND DIDN'T COOK THE POTATOES LONG ENOUGH. THEY WERE STILL HARD. BUT I ADDED A LITTLE WATER AND MORE VINEGAR AND COVERED IT. LET IT SIMMER TILL THE POTATOES WERE SOFTENED. PERFECTION!!!! THANK YOU
