About this Cook
I am a 53 year old "housewife" with 4 grandchildren that are the joys of my life!!! They all love to stand on a stool and help Nana in the kitchen. I come from a long line of old country cooks and love to cook from scratch. I didn't realize until I was married a few years that you could buy egg noodles in the store. I made that mistake once and my family has never let me forget it! LOL My dream is to move back to the small town in Nebraska my family helped homestead 100 years ago and carry on the tradition of cooking for others. Great Great Grandma was hired to cook for the president whenever he was in the state!! My grandmother was a restaurateur and I would love to follow in her footsteps one day. We just built our home and it was basically a kitchen with a home built around it!! Lol. I finall have my dream kitchen. I love animals (live in a small zoo), crafts, computers, gardening, movies, and of course cooking!!

Quiche Lorraine I
This is wonderful!! I have made this twice in the past week and plan on making it again! I did increase the eggs ny 2 because I used a larger sized pie pan and omitted the cayanne as we don't care for it. HIGHLY recommend this if you are a quiche lover!

Chicken Cordon Bleu II
WOW!!! This was truly wonderful!! A definite keeper but do double the sauce. Followed the directions as written (except for the sauce doubling) and it was unbelievable!! The most surprising part was how incredibly easy it is! I served it on chicken flavored rice. Will impress all you make this for and they will think you spent hours on it. I wish there were more than 5 stars available to rate this!
