Me and My Hubby
About this Cook
I was born and raised a Hoosier, but God lead us to a wonderfully beautiful life in the Ozarks. My husband and teenage boys are my cooking guinea pigs, but they are willing and ready subjects to my experimentation (cue the evil laugh). Our activities center around our boys and church. We have a very blessed life!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook comfort foods, but I am always ready to try something different. When cooking for others I am amazed how excited people are to see some basic homemade foods like my grandma taught me to make. I love to cook for people!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy making my Grandma Fisher's recipes. She collected recipes from family, her jazz club and many friends. She worked many years in the L.S. Ayres department store in Indianapolis. The recipes from the Ayres Tearoom have been family favorites. I have also been very fortunate to be surrounded by the best cooks in the world. The ladies of the Ozarks have taught me to make everything from fried apples, pie crust to "slickers" (flat dumplings).
My cooking triumphs
Filling up hungry teenage boys...a never-ending process.
My cooking tragedies
Chicken paprikash. Almost ruined a 2 month old marriage.

Cranberry Nut Granola Bars
A bit bland. I will use it as a base for granola bars, but it needs some spicying up a bit.

Seriously? This is what this tastes like? I always wondered! Addicting for this carbaholic! I suspected it would be good, but husband and I ate pretty near the whole thing....and I had customized the recipe to feed 8! Lord have mercy!!!!
