About this Cook
Single,mother of two grown daughters,have 2 teenage grandchildren and a little girl on the way. Avid biker since age 16. Love reading,gathering recipes and seeing people enjoy what I cook.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican dishes, especially soups. I make tortillas and tamales. I am learning to cook Thai and Vietnamese dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was raised in Oklahoma by German,Irish and Native Indian relatives. Our style of cooking was a blend of all these type of dishes. My German relatives were Amish and Black Dutch so our family dishes reflected this heritage. Scrapple,chipped beef and gravy over toast anyone?
My cooking triumphs
Making really good tamales. Finding old time comfort food recipes of my ancestors like fry bread, hot water bread,homemade noodles. And canning meats like my grandmother did.
My cooking tragedies
I had not made a pie crust in so long that I tried to make an apple pie recently. And it was AWFUL!!!! Got to get my skills back that my grandmother taught me.

Fish and Tamarind Soup
Quick and easy. I had all the ingredients already when I was suddenly craving some Asian style soup to make me feel better today. The only thing I added for my personal taste was about 1 tablespoon of brown sugar. Other than that, I would not change a single thing about this great recipe.

Flatlander Chili
This is a great mild chili for kids and folks sensitive to spicy chili. I would make this again. The longer it simmers the better it gets.

Butternut Squash Soup II
Easy recipe.Too bland so followed one review and added garlic,nutmeg and cinnamon with a dash of ground red pepper. Much better. I cook my butternut squash in slow cooker after halving and de-seeding. Then quickly scrape off shell but leaving some tender parts of the skin for increased nutrition. I use my Magic Bullet to properly puree skin and meat and all the cooked veggies with the chicken stock. I used coffee creamer as didnt have half and half. I also added a bit of brown sugar. I shared with family and got great reviews. I am keeping this recipe as a starter for my soup.
