About this Cook
I live alone now, son has grown up and moved out. I like to bake and take goodies to work a lot. Cooking for one isn't easy for me, so I usually have a lot of food to share with co-workers as well! lol
My favorite things to cook
Cakes, cookies, enchiladas, steaks, roast, ice cream, all kinds of veggies, anything with cheese (if appropriate) just everything!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Watching Mom make enchiladas while I was growing up (with her homemade sauce, which was make a roux add a dash of this and a handful of that and don't forget the spoonful of peanut butter and a lot of other stuff besides the red chili she put in it!) Oh, and baking cookies, too!
My cooking triumphs
Anytime anyone enjoys a meal I've made!
My cooking tragedies
Learning to cook for one (just me, now) all over again...

New York Spiedies
Born in Binghamton myself, my parents moved us to Phoenix when I was 2. We still had spiedies all the time when they could afford meat. When times were better we got to go home to NY/Pa to visit our family still there and have more. Going to have to make some up for my Super Bowl party, and this recipe is great, though I do cut back on the oregano a bit. Thanks for sharing!

Basil Pesto Bread Rounds
Fabulous! I took them to a barbecue/picnic at the park and prepared them in a stovetop oven. I couldn't make them fast enough for our group, very well received! Thanks for a great recipe, I will make these tasty nibbles often!
