About this Cook
I went to college when I was 37 years old. Dr. Dunn taught a literary class on food, and I have loved to cook ever since. However, I have been cooking since I was 15 when it was my chore to cook Friday's dinner. I am very sensitive to preservatives and as I age I will tolerate them less and less so now I seek to only cook with the fresh raw veggies, and the best cuts of meat.
My favorite things to cook
All different veggies, soups, and desserts. My husband loves bacon so I try to include it into many of my dishes. He will eat anything with bacon. I am not big on sauces or stews but I do prepare them from time to time. I make a wicked hamburger. My meatloaf is an old recipe that my kids love bc it is moist and no onions.
My favorite family cooking traditions
To make the person's favorite meal on their birthday...whether they are with us or not.
My cooking triumphs
My Grandmother's potato-nik. I don't particularly like it but if I want my brother to really feel special...I make it. It is a true Hungarian dish which we had as a staple appetizer my entire growing up years. It's a heavy dish but I have never seen anything like it.
My cooking tragedies
stuffed Cabbage. The meat is not to be like a hard meatball. My Grandmother yells from her grave every time I make it so I gave up. also, cooking in Florida is challenging bc it is so hot. I get sick of salads and long for hearty meals of the North. Now that I am close to retiring I will spend half my time in Maine so I can cook to my hearts content.

These are sooooo good! Like potato latkes made from squash! I added a little red pepper to the mix!
