About this Cook
I've been cooking for more than 30 years, I would rather be at home cooking than doing anything else!
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles, grilling, open campfire cooking. I love trying new recipes and love sharing recipes. My brother was featured on Food Network (I was on the show as well) with an old family recipe, so we come from a long family history of cooks!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking for the family for the holidays. Everyone looks forward to my traditional home cooking!
My cooking triumphs
I rarely follow cooking ingredients/directions to a "T", I usually change or add spices or ingredients to a recipe. It makes things unique, interesting and fun. I love coming up with my "own" casseroles, especially when I want to clear out the pantry and/or freezer. I came up with a chicken casserole many years ago that everyone raved about and it has since become a recipe that I make at least once every month or so.
My cooking tragedies
I can only think of one tragedy... it was just about a month after I was married, I bought a box of Chef Boyardee lasagne, made it, served it to my husband and his friend. They HATED it, it was awful, but being U.S. Marines, they ate it anyway!

Best Chicken Ever
Made recipe as directed a few nights ago. While the chicken was moist, I found this lacked flavor. I did love the corn flake crunchy texture, but I think I will try this recipe again using some rotisserie chicken seasoning and/or paprika and black pepper added to the sour cream.

Burrito Pie
Very easy, inexpensive dish. I used a big round casserole dish. Served with a salad and rice. Not sure why the other reviewer said 448 bottles of sauce... maybe they had too much "sauce" when they reviewed! ;-]

Pepperoni Burgers
Sorry, just didn't think these were all that great, and I even added more pepperoni! They just needed something more, and I'm not sure what that would be!

Versatile Chicken Salad
Versatile Chicken Salad

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
