About this Cook
I enjoy collecting recipes and even use some of them occasionally. I retired from teaching special ed, and before that, spent 22-plus years in the Air Force. I enjoy traveling, reading, walking, and meeting new people.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta main dishes, vegetable side dishes, muffins, fruit desserts
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lasagna, banana bread for Christmas giving, homemade split pea soup for the family
My cooking triumphs
I make a killer banana nut bread, have also gotten quite expert at turning out well-made pies, including lemon meringue and chocolate cream. My husband loves my split pea soup, too.
My cooking tragedies
I made a pecan pie that would not come out of the pan without a heavy-duty sawing knife, the crust was so embedded. Since then, I've learned to sprinkle flour on both sides of the crust before placing it in the pan. I have also been known to press graham cracker and other pastry crusts too firmly into the pan, making them difficult to cut.

Individual Pumpkin Pies
These turned out good, but I put the oven temperature up to 325, then baked for about an hour, to get the centers set. And I used ginger snaps with foil liners like several of the reviewers suggested. I made them for my husband's poker group, for an easy-to-eat dessert.

Pumpkin Squares
I made this for a cake & ice cream social this past weekend, but used an 11 x 16 cake pan and was very pleased with how it turned out. Even though I was short on oil, had only about 1/2-3/4 cup, the cake was still pretty moist and was well received, especially with the cream cheese frosting. The baking time was about the same as in the recipe. A good fall cake!

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
This turned out real well, and my husband really liked it. But I, like another reviewer, replaced some of the water with chicken broth. The biscuit or dumpling topping did take longer, more like an hour, to get properly done. I also added some frozen mixed veggies to give it more interest and flavor. A good, cold-weather dish for the crockpot.
