About this Cook
I was an only child and my mother was a good cook. So I did not really learn as a child. I did make Friday night dinners for a period of time, when Mom was working weekends. Baked potato, salmon loaf, and canned spinach every Friday. No wonder she didn't work at that job too long!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, but only do it rarely anymore. So I almost always take desserts to our monthly neighborhood meeting.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A few years ago, my Dr. said, 'You're not a diabetic, but...." That did it. I became serious about dieting, and my dear husband took over the cookiing for out dinner, so I could stay away from temptation. He had never cooked until he retired, but became a areally GOOD cook, and more imaginative by far than I. I lost over 50 pounds, and he had something that he got really involved in, taking over the shopping as well as the cooking.
My cooking triumphs
I do, and always have, enjoyed making bread. I have a bread machine, but haven't useed it since the novelty wore off, as the best part of bread making is doing the kneading, and it is a wonderful way to work out frustrations.
My cooking tragedies
I can't think of any really major mess ups. Just feel that I was not a very imaginative chef. Having four girls and a husband who was only willing to eat hamburger cooked with tomato sauce and any pasta, during much of our lives, and a very time consuming job for 20 years, I just was pedestrian for most of my cooking life. Now that my Doug is gone, I am tr ying to keep up the job he and I did on my weight and health.

Omelet in a Bag
i live alone, and hate cleaning the skillet after making scrambled eggs. With these reasons it works beautifully for me!

Matzoh Ball Soup
this recipe is a LOT of work. I buy a Costo roasted chicken, and debone it and use the bones and skin with an quartered onion and a couple of carrots to make the soup. It makes an outstanding chicken broth (or stock) and you have the meat to use in any one of a dozen ways with a lot less effort. I didn't have a bubbe but grew up in a Jewish neighborhood, and when we went to the local deli, I learned to love Matzoh ball soup.

Basic Crepes
I have for years used this to make blintzes. Warmed cottage cheese mixed with crushed pineapple and sugar makes a great filling.
