About this Cook
I started cooking for the family when I was 14 years old, Mom would tell me what to make and leave the recipe out for me to follow (had taken Home Ec. in jr. high). I've been cooking ever since and enjoy sharing my recipes and creation with anyone who likes to eat!
My favorite things to cook
Easy recipes and LOVE to use my crock-pots too!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I read cookbooks like most people read novels, which is something that my Grandma use to do too, so it is in my genes! My grandma was a cook for the nuns in the small town that I grew up in and they would all come back from lunch and tell my brothers and me how good of a cook our grandma was. My mother followed in her footsteps as a good cook and now it's my turn to show my two daughters how to be good cooks too!
My cooking triumphs
Made my nephews wedding cake and have made and sold cakes thru the years. Any recipe that turns out great is a triumph and having the family tell you that they really liked their meal and to make sure and keep the recipe because they want you to make it again!
My cooking tragedies
In jr. high I accidentally added to much butter to a cookie recipe and the cookies really spread but they were still good! Any recipe that sounds really good but than does not taste like the recipe sounds like it should.

Salmon Cakes II
I made these last Friday night for our supper and we all enjoyed these so much. My daughter could have eaten all four by herself, that is how much she liked these! I served these with Creamed Peas and Mashed Potatoes would have been and excellent side dish to serve, as well. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Broccoli Coleslaw
I've got a recipe simliar to this one but it calls for 1/4 cup oil, 4 Tbsp. sugar, 4 Tbsp. apple cider vinegar, 1/4 tsp. pepper, 1/4 tsp. salt and the flavor packet. I can't image using one cup of oil! I also use a 16 oz. package of broccoli slaw mix, sometimes it's packaged as broccoli coleslaw. I also add 1/2 cup slivered almonds, 4 Tsps. sunflower seeds and 4 green onions chopped. Made this way it is VERY GOOD!!

Smooth Sweet Tea
Very good on a hot summer day! I made just like the recipe said too, but I think next time I will cut sugar down to 1/2 cup and see if that sweetness is better for me. Great recipe!
