About this Cook
Retired Chem. Engineer. Married w/ 2 kids in college. I love summer and vacations.
My favorite things to cook
Fast and easy stuff with common ingredients but great flavor and nutrition. This is changing since I retired, but I didn't have time to be shopping to find ingredients I never heard of, and I often started preparing meals late, when everybody was already hungry and can't wait for a meal that takes too long to prepare.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chili night at our vacation place (the extended family comes over for chili and corn bread when we're there for vacation) The traditional Thanksgiving dinner at one of our sisters'houses.

Garlic Mashed Potatoes Secret Recipe
The recipe calculator worked beautifully to reduce to 3 servings! Used red skinned potatos. Saved time by microwaving the quartered potatoes 10 min on high (for 1.5 lbs potatos). Cut the butter in half and left the salt out, and they were still delish!

Red Cabbage
Wonderful! I had run out of allspice so left that out, but it was still heavenly! Will definitely make this again.

Cream of Spinach Soup
A great way to get your veggies! I used chicken broth instead of water and bouillon, a 10oz bag of fresh spinach leaves instead of frozen, half of a small/medium yellow onion instead of dried onion, and cornstarch instead of flour, to make it gluten-free. I cooked the spinach whole, but I used a submersion blender to chop up the spinach and onions just before serving. It was delicious!
