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.

Quick and Easy Sauteed Spinach
Way too much garlic salt. I cut down to 1/2 tsp and it still was a bit too much. Garlic powder or fresh garlic would be a better choice and then add just a pinch of salt

Pumpkin Cake II
Pretty easy cake and had good results. I left out the water and reduced the oil to 1/4 cup and added 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce. I added 1/2 tsp nutmeg. I wish I would have reduced the sugar, because this was too sweet for me and I generally like things sweet. I mixed all the ingredients EXCEPT the cake mix until smooth, I added the cake mix last, mixing just until the dry ingredients are incorporated. Over mixing will definitely produce a heavy/dense cake.The addition of a little cloves and ginger would really make this cake shine. Or just use pumpkin pie spice instead. I will make this again, but with less sugar.

Skillet Fried Corn
I liked this, but with some changes. I took other suggestions. I removed the cooked bacon and drained and reserved the bacon fat. I cooked the green pepper and onion in 1 tbs of the fat. When the veggies were tender I add the corn and one more tbsp of bacon fat. I added salt and pepper and a small amount of red pepper flakes. The bacon was added back into pan at the very end. I brought this to a potluck dinner and everyone gobbled it up, including the kids.
