About this Cook
Married, grandmother of 5. I work part time as a dental receptionist. I have a collection of over 150 cook books. I love the cook books from the 50-60's.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! I enjoy making breads and desserts. I prefer Southern Style cooking, but adjust the recipes to be on the healthier side.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I would make and can Salsa together from the tomatoes in our garden. We also make jelly and can spaghetti sauce.
My cooking triumphs
My cinnamin rolls are out of this world. I combined many recipes to come up with the one I now use.
My cooking tragedies
One of the first meals I cooked as a new wife was liver and onions (my husbands favorite). It wasn't cooked through and bled on the plate when cut into. Yuck, we threw it out.

Sausage Pasta
So easy!! I only had mild Italian sausage so I think the addition of red pepper flakes would have added some spiciness, but overall, I thought it was very good. I made sure I pressed some of the juice out of the spinach so the dish wouldn't be watery. I used Bob Evans Italian Sausage which has no grease to drain, so olive oil is a must when cooking the sausage. I had some fresh basil on hand, so I used that. I think fresh Parmesan cheese would have been wonderful, but all I had was Kraft in the jar.This is a good meal to make when you come home from work tired and you don't feel like cooking. You can serve this to company with some Italian bread and you have a winner.

Bavarian Style Meatballs
The sauce was way too thin and there was too much of it, not to mention how horribly sweet it was.

Easy Slow Cooker Ribs
Let me begin by saying that I am not a big fan of slow cooker ribs, but I gave this a try. Even though I didn't absolutely love it, I liked the taste and the ease of this recipe. I could only find Chipolte Chili Powder and not Chipolte Seasoning, which I am sure has more to it than just Chipolte peppers. I made the sauce using one teaspoon of the chipolte chili powder and tasted it before adding the regular chili powder. I felt the there was enough heat and smokiness from the chipolte, that I did not add the additional chili powder. If you like more kick in your sauce add the regular chili powder. I used St. Louis style ribs and cooked for 8 hours (my pot runs hot). Good summertime recipe that doesn't heat up the house. I would make again because of the simplicity of this recipe.
