About this Cook
My elderly mother who lived with me for 10 years got admitted to a nursing home a few months ago. Now I can concentrate on a different diet as I couldn't make a lot of raw vegetables or spicy stuff which made cooking a challenge when she was with me. I LOVE animals and birds and do volunteer work in that area.
My favorite things to cook
Anything there is leftovers! : )
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lemon Cheese, Rum Butter @ Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
Potlucks and taking cookies and cakes to work, I rock!!!
My cooking tragedies
Anything I burn...........but that is rare.

Winter Root Vegetable Salad
I was very skeptical of this salad to begin with but OH, what a pleasant surprise but totally different from the salads I usually prepare. Agreed it is a misnomer as the ingredients are available all year round but it is nice, crunchy change and good for us!!! The only thing I would change is a bit more dressing but don't double it and I did chop up a few more pepperoncini peppers than called for. Do give it a try, very different and will have folks guess exactly WHAT is in it!! :)

Artichoke and Salmon Salad
I couldn't find a pouch of salmon in my area of Canada so purchased a small portion of lightly smoked salmon. Increased the Greek seasoning slightly as well as the lemon juice and mixed the salmon in with the cream cheese, lemon juice, parsley and seasoning. As you can see, I ended up with a delightful antipasto lunch with crackers, tomato, pickles, artichoke hearts (my fav) and black olives on the side!

4.5, used less white sugar in the syrup as sweet enough already, very nice!
