About this Cook
I love to cook and entertain, and especially enjoy trying new recipes with non-conventional ingredients. This web site has been the best thing to happen to my cooking expertise since my very first cookbook, "The Good Houskeeping Cookbook". Concerning my reviews on allrecipes, my mom always taught me, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all." Hence, I only review the recipes I like; however, I do appreciate and take into consideration others' reviews, good or bad, and their suggestions when I prepare recipes from allrecipes. In fact, the reviewers have taught me as much about cooking as the recipes themselves. I must admit that I have a pet peeve: people who change submitted recipes then give them a bad review!
My favorite things to cook
Appetizers, salads, pasta dishes, lamb, and fish (especially salmon and haddock).
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love hosting traditional Thanksgiving at my home. We usually have 15 to 20 family members join us for a dinner consisting of slightly varied versions of the same dishes (turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes, etc., etc.) each year.
My cooking triumphs
My best dishes usually involve salmon or haddock, although barbecuing steaks and chicken is high on the list, too!
My cooking tragedies
Lamb "briquettes" resulting from my grill flaming up and consuming my lovely baby lamb chops!

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies
Absolutely fabulous! I added a bit of ground cloves and nutmeg to the batter (a little less than a tsp. each).

Sopapilla Cheesecake Pie
Unbelievable! The only thing wrong with this recipe is the cooking time - I had to cook it twice as long as noted in the recipe. It is absolutely heavenly.

Salsa Chicken Rice Casserole
I increased all ingredients, used 2 chicken breasts and 4 thighs which I sauteed in butter with the onions, made it in a larger casserole dish, used one package of pecan brown rice and 1 bag of Success rice, added a small can of green chili peppers, and used medium rather than mild salsa . . . didn't need to increase the cheese as 4 cups is plenty . . . very yummy!
