About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom of 8 and frequent volunteer who loves to cook for family and friends. I cook for a mob so nothing fancy, just good tasting, filling, and easy on the budget.
My favorite things to cook
Pasta, bbq, seafood and baked goods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father's family was from Pennsylvania and every year at Thanksgiving we have the stuffing that has been enjoyed by the family for generations.
My cooking triumphs
I made a wedding cake for my sister and it turned out better than I could have hoped!
My cooking tragedies
Crab cakes :-( A miserable disaster and an expensive one, too. My first attempt at crabe cakes and I didn't drain the salt water the crab meat was packaged in. That was a long time ago!

Hawaiian Pineapple Chicken
This recipe is very bland. The sauce reminded us of tomato soup. We won't be making this again.

Amish Macaroni Salad
I love this macaroni salad! It's simple to make but has a dressing which is different from the norm. The Miracle Whip and mustard combination really work and the addition of red peppers adds a splash of color. Don't use regular mayo, it won't have the same flavor.

Crab Imperial II
I have made this a few times. Being from Maryland I know what Crab Imperial should taste like. This is a great recipe! We will be having it again tonight for our New Year's Eve dinner.
