About this Cook
I've been cooking and baking since I was a young girl. My grandmother taught me so much as well as my neighbor which allowed me to help mom get things on the table when she was working. Now I'm teaching my 2 daughters how to cook and bake at the ages of 3 and 5 years old. The same age I started! Whenever I cook they are right there wanting to learn so I teach them like my grandmother taught me.
My favorite things to cook
pastas, chicken dishes, soups, and I love to bake as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
my grandmother taught mew that when you are simmering something on the stove..always scrape around the sides of the pot because that is where all the good stuff goes! Ever year I have Christmas as my house for the entire family and it's a festive get together filled with lots of laughter and food.
My cooking triumphs
after watching a zillion tv shows on cooking, reading recipe books as a hobby and my past experience...I can say tht the times I "wing it" in the kitchen I still come out with a pretty good meal! Grandma always told me...if it doesn't turn out...pitch it and order a pizza!
My cooking tragedies
the 1st time I made chicken paprika my dumpings turned out more like baseballs. Needless to say this was the 1st meal I was cooking for my husband....while we were still dating. Needless to say, I pitched them as grandma said and used noodles instead...and he still married me!!

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
tips: put dough in freezer for a couple hours and then refrig in between batchs or you'll have a gooey mess on your hands! Wasn't happy with the cookies the 1st day I made them, but the next day they tasted better. Dough is difficult to work with though so not sure I will fight with it again.

Bacon Water Chestnut Rolls
I have been making these for about 25 years now and I've always used BBQ sauce instead of the other suace provided here. I wrap them ahead of time in the bacon and put in frig because I usually make about 100 of these at a time! I never have leftovers either! Delicious!
