About this Cook
I am a School Head Cook and have been for about 20 years. I was the ONLY cook whatsoever for 7 years and still LOVED it! Cooking is such FUN!!!! My Little People always wish I would go with them when they leave our little school for 7th grade. It is almost time to retire, nowever as long as I continue to LOVE what I do.....I simply won't!
My favorite things to cook
Baking is so gratifying and I also like to try to duplicate some of my Italian grandmother's dishes. I am open to everything "FOOD"!
My favorite family cooking traditions
That would have to be Christmas Eve and my fish dishes.
My cooking triumphs
My Hot Rolls have been complimented all over my state. Also I am told the "love" I put in everything shows! In our County Fair I have won Blue Ribbons on my Black Walnut Pound Cake and Lemon Pound Cake, also Yeast Bread and Snickerdoodles.
My cooking tragedies
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhh nooooooooooo, when my Hot Rolls fail (and it does happen)!

Crab and Shrimp Delight
I HATE to change some one's recipe! However, I wanted something different, so I read all reviews, then proceeded to add more milk (no fat evaporated), used Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom Soup, no fat Shredded Cheddar and added Old Bay Seasoning and Parsley-a tablespoon of each! This is a wonderful, wonderful recipe and with my changes much less fat! Please try this one, absolutely delicious!
