About this Cook
Take it from me..."It's never too late to learn how to cook!" I'm FINALLY figuring out food tastes better when it's NOT from a can or a box! How did we ever survive without onions and garlic in our house? God bless my husband and children for never complaining over my lack of culinary skills. I suppose the empty nest (and the grace of God) has awakened in me an interest in cooking "real" food. And who would've thought it would be FUN? Not me! But I'm having a blast learning something new each day! This website is so informative and I thank all the contributors who are teaching me how to get "out of the box" and into REAL COOKING! Now where's my spatula?! :)
My favorite things to cook
Anything that doesn't moo or oink!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making graham cracker gingerbread houses at Christmas with the children/grandchildren. This year I will attempt to bake my own gingerbread from scratch! I need to search for the perfect recipe...any suggestons???
My cooking triumphs
ROASTING BEETS and STEAMING ASPARAGUS! I'll NEVER buy the canned variety again!
My cooking tragedies
My first Easter ham that wiggled on the plate! I thought it was pre-cooked, but maybe it wasn't. Disgusting to think about even to this day! :-O

Slow Cooker Boneless Turkey Breast
I used a 7lb. bone in turkey breast. Eliminated the dry onion mix completely! Placed breast in pot and poured 1 can chicken broth and a little water over it.. Rubbed butter under skin and seasoned with all the spices listed PLUS sage, poultry seasoning, thyme, rosemary and a pinch of paprika. Put chopped onion, celery, and carrots around the turkey. Cooked on high 1 hour then low for 7. It literally fell off the bone taking it out of crock pot! Under the broiler it went for about 7 mins to brown skin and it was perfect! I've never had such moist white turkey meat! This was great for a small family holiday dinner but I won't wait for the holidays to make it again!

Cranberry Sauce
To get a perfect, not too sweet, not too tart sauce I used 1/2 C coconut sugar and a couple TBS of Truvia dissolved in 1/2 C orange juice and 1/2 C fresh pineapple juice with some of the pulp. Topped the sauce with a walnut. Pretty and delicious and couldn't be any easier!

Chilled Cantaloupe Soup
I made this as written and it is a very tasty and refreshing soup or drink. It definitely needs to be chilled thoroughly so plan accordingly. I will make it again but will cube and freeze my cantaloupe the night before, add a touch of mint in the blender and serve it in a pretty glass with a mint spring on top! Nice for the summer.
