About this Cook
I AM A DISABLED HOUSEWIFE WHO REALLY LIKES TO TRY AND LEARN NEW THINGS. I DON'T GET AROUND VERY WELL BUT I DO LIKE TO TRY. I HAVE A WONDERFUL CARING HUBBY WHO CHERISHES ME AND HELPS ME WHEN HE CAN. I TELL YOU, I KEEP HIM ON HIS TOES. WE HAVE 2 FURBABIES AND 6 CHILDREN TOGETHER, WE ARE THE PROUD GRAND PARENTS OF 9 BEAUTIFUL GRAND CHILDREN.
My favorite things to cook
SPAGHETTI, LASAGNA, HOMEMADE COCOA, I HAVE A CORN DISH THAT I LOVE TO MAKE AND IT IS WHAT I CALL CORN PUDDING. IT IS MY MADE UP RECIPE AND I HAVE A FRIEND WHO CAN NEVER GET ENOUGH OF IT AND IS ALWAYS ASKING ME TO MAKE IT FOR HER ON HOLIDAYS. I ALSO MAKE A MEAN HOMEMADE BANANA PUDDING FROM SCRATCH. I HAVE ANOTHER FRIEND WHO IS ALSO DISABLED AND SHE ALWAYS CALLS AND BEGS ME FOR MORE BANANA PUDDING BUT I DON'T GET TO MAKE IT OFTEN CAUSE I HAVE TO STAND FOR ABOUT 2 HRS. AND IT HURTS ME SO BAD. HUBBY HAS ME A STOOL BUT IT IS JUST TO TALL TO WORK FOR ME. MY POTATO SALAD IS PRETTY DARN GOOD TOO.
My favorite family cooking traditions
MY GRANDMOTHER'S HOMEMADE BISCUITS, HER AMBROSIA IS TO DIE FOR. SHE ALWAYS MADE IT AT CHRISTMAS TIME FOR US AND NOW THAT SHE HAS PASSED I DON'T GET IT. I CAN'T DO IT THE WAY SHE DID AND I DON'T KNOW IF IT IS SOMETHING SHE ADDED TO IT {MAYBE ALOT OF LOVE} THAT I CAN'T FIGURE OUT. SHE ALSO MADE SOME MEAN PICKLED PEACHES WHICH YOU NEVER SEE ANYMORE.
My cooking triumphs
HOMEMEDE BISCUITS, BANANA PUDDING, I TRIED ALL MY LIFE TO MAKE THESE 2 THINGS WITH PERFECTION OR WHAT I CALL PERFECTION AND I HAVE FINALLY MASTERED THE HOMEMADE BANANA PUDDING AND AM STILL WORKING ON THE BISCUITS.I HAVE YET TO FIND A GOOD ONE I REALLY LIKE THAT IS NOT DRY AND TASTES GOOD.
My cooking tragedies
SOUFFLE, I JUST CANNOT MAKE A SOUFFLE NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRY.

Daria's Slow Cooker Beef Stroganoff
WE THOUGHT THIS WAS A PRETTY GOOD DISH AND I DID MAKE A COUPLE OF MINOR CHANGES. I DID NOT USE ANY WINE AND I ONLY USED 1/2 CONTAINER OF SOUR CREAM AND IN THIS RECIPE YOU REALLY NEED TO USE A GOOD BRAND OF SOUR CREAM AS YOU CAN REALLY TASTE IT WELL. OH YEA ONE OTHER CHANGE I MADE IN MINE WAS I USED STEW MEAT AND IT WAS REALLY GOOD AND TENDER. MY HUBBY LOVES STROGANOFF SO I WAS LOOKING FOR A GOOD ONE.

Texas Ranch Chicken
WE FOUND THAT THIS RECIPE WAS VERY, VERY RICH. SOME MAY LIKE THIS AND IF YOU ARE PLANNING TO TRY IT WITH BONE-IN CHICKEN...DON'T. THIS IS WHAT I HAD AND WHAT I USED AND IT DOES NOT WORK OUT WELL AT ALL HAVING TO COOK THE DRESSING THAT LONG. WE WILL TRY IT AGAIN WITH THE BONELESS, SKINLESS CHICKEN BREAST THOUGH, BEFORE WE GIVE IT A NO GO FOR US.
