About this Cook
General: I am a single parent of one son. I am now, however, an empty nester. My son is married and moved to Jacksonville, FL. Work: I am a preschool teacher and finally obtained my degree in May of 2010. Fun: I belong to a Middle-Eastern dance troupe and we dance and raise money for local charities. I love to read, cook, and garden, as well.
My favorite things to cook
I created a recipe due to a limited pantry after Hurricane Ivan came my way in 2004. It is called "Black Bean Enchiladas;" my mom always raves about this dish and asks me to make when family comes in town. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is of Scottish heritage and also Pennsylvania Dutch. I try to incorporate recipes from both into my daily cooking. A favorite recipe that has been passed down is called, "Pot Pie." My dad's favorite is Ham Pot Pie. It is close to the Southern Chicken and Dumplings and not like a baked pot pie.
My cooking triumphs
I have been buying weekly at the local Farmer's Market and they gave me some "patty pan" squash to make. They gave me two ideas to try. I made both of them and both were delicious!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make a pumpkin pie that had rum in it for Thanksgiving one year. It was terrible! My family said, "I hope you never make that again!" It WAS bad! bleck!

Scented Applesauce-Cinnamon Ornaments
I have made these with my preschool class and also my grandchildren. I found using a straw to make the hole for hanging, instead of a toothpick, worked better for me. It was easier for the children to control to make the hole.

Grandmas Bogie's Parmesan Chicken
I followed this recipe exactly, except I used rice cereal that was crunched up in a bag to bread crumb consistency. I used rice cereal because one of my family members must now eat gluten-free foods. Substituting the rice cereal for the bread crumbs did not seem to affect how juicy or flavorful the chicken was! :)
