About this Cook
I am an empty nester with 2 very energetic JRTs (jack russell terriers). They are always happy to taste test my recipes! My husband actually hipped me to this website and we use it all the time to get ideas on cooking. I've learned quite a bit by reading the reviews.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, so I would say my favorite is pies (all kinds). As for cooking, I love Italian food, so anything Italian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love our traditional Easter ham, with raison sauce on the side and a different variety of sweet potato casserole each year. I just hope that I'll be able to live up to my mom's great cooking when she's gone. She just turned 92 and still does most of the cooking at family gatherings!
My cooking tragedies
I almost burnt the house down when I attempted to roast some nuts in the oven. Now my husband and granddaughter make a joke about grabbing the fire extinquisher every time I turn on the oven.

Chocolate Drop Cookies II
The cookie is good, but the icing did not turn out well. It was way too dry, even after adding more butter and cream. What a mess, trying to ice on top of the marshmallow! I will skip the marshmallow next time,and use a traditional fudge icing.

Kathy's Delicious Whole Slow Cooker Chicken
This was mediocre at best. The chicken was overcooked and the taste was just not pleasing to us. We did end up making soup from the leftover broth and chicken so it wasn't wasted.
