Well, of course, nurture. But if you were raised to be frugal, can you ever not be frugal?  Doesn't frugality feel genetic?   If you have been fortunate in life to move from poverty to working poor or working poor to lower middle class or even middle middle class (the only socio-economic… MORE

About this Cook
I've been retired for about a year and LOVE retirement so far! I have three children: two boys and a girl, all grown. Five grands, all grandsons, ages almost eighteen to just turned nine.
My favorite things to cook
I cook for one or two most of the time and like to prepare multiple servings and either eat 'em up over a couple of days, or use a foodsaver to freeze the leftovers. We try to watch the sodium and cholesterol so we eat a lot of vegetables and very few pre-packaged foods. As a general rule, we try to avoid purchasing anything with ingredients we can't pronounce or very l-o-n-g ingredient lists.

Polenta with Spicy Sausage-Veggie Sauce
Excellent. I prefer this recipe over a couple of others I've tried where the sauce and polenta were made into a casserole. My proportions must have been off. I used a half pound of sausage, and a full twenty-four ounce jar of marinara, and my sauce was plenty chunky. A definite keeper!

Easiest Corn on the Cob
Perfect. We tried this a couple of years ago, without much success. This time, I cooked two ears of corn for four minutes on high, left them in the microwave for about a minute. Not a single silk remained! My microwave is old and small in size..not sure about the wattage. I might be able to cook four years at one time, depending on size. Might also be able to cook five: three on the bottom and two on top, rearranged halfway thru the cook time. After I removed the husks, I wrapped the corn in a clean tea towel and put it in the oven (cold oven) until the rest of our meal was ready.

Classic Savory Deviled Eggs
Excellent classic deviled egg. Classic to me, anyway =) ... I don't care for Dijon, so used regular spicy brown mustard. I might add a bit more vinegar next time, but will definitely save and use this recipe. Too often, my deviled eggs taste different every time I make them. Sometimes a good thing...sometimes not!
