About this Cook
I love to cook and experiment with new recipes. I have been cooking since I was tall enough to stand on a stool beside the stove with my Mom. I had/have a large family and was raised in a small town in Ohio and are now living in Cincinnati. OH with my husband and daughter. I work full time but always make time for cooking and baking.
My favorite things to cook
I love casseroles and all holiday foods, especially Thanksgiving and Christmas.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting together for the holidays and making all the favorite dishes and baking cookies.
My cooking triumphs
The best thing I make is pies and cakes and casseroles.
My cooking tragedies
I made a breakfast casserole one time for my husband to take to work and it didn't get done in the middle and it was awful-he had to throw it away. Also, I tried to make lemon pie one time and it turned out really runny so we had to eat it with a spoon. I have burned foods and forgotten to add ingredients to cakes, etc. I guess your typical birdbrain things that happen when you cook long enough!

Sugar Cream Pie III
I must have done something wrong because the pie came out like soup. It got golden on the top but it didn't set up in the middle. I baked it for an hour and let it set in the fridge for 4 hours and it still did not come out. I think a couple of eggs would have helped. Maybe I will try it the next time.

Cream Cheese Squares
These bars are delicious! I made them for the guys at work last week and they disappeared in no time. I only made one change, I just brushed some margarine on the top after baking and them sprinkled it with the cinnamon and sugar. I was afraid the c/s mixture on the top would carmelize or burn during baking. They were very good. I will make them again. Thanks.

Chicken Eugene
I didn't have regular sour cream so I used the french onion dip that I had and used both chicken and mushroom soup plus put a slice of swiss cheese on the chicken before I wrapped it with the bacon strip. I also rinsed the dried beef to get rid of some of the salt. I used the gravy over mashed potatoes and it turned out really good. My husband liked it and he usually does not like casseroles. Thanks.
