About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I'm a meat and potatoes kind of gal, but I do make things my grandmothers used to make - goulash, halupki, halushki, paprikash
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband, his mom and I get together every Christmas and bake cookies together
My cooking triumphs
My husband and I catered a wedding for a friend's son - an Italian buffet for 75 people.
My cooking tragedies
The first Thanksgiving turkey I ever made (for my entire extended family) was cold on the inside, and undercooked...because I didn't take the neck and gizzards out of the cavity! I had no idea they even put that stuff inside the turkey! :P

Mom's Country Gravy
WOW! Yummy, just like I get when I go down South to visit my son...without the 10 hour drive! I browned sausage and had to add some butter because there wasn't enough fat in the pan, and didn't use as much milk because I like my gravy thick. No salt or pepper either, because I added the sausage back in and there was plenty of both in the sausage. A dash of garlic just 'cause we like garlic. Spoon over biscuits and YUM! Thanks for the great recipe!

Cranberry Sauce
This is a good cranberry sauce. I doctored it up a bit. I use 1 bag of cranberries, 1 cup of white sugar and 1 cup of water. While it's cooking I add 2 peeled oranges and 2 green-skinned apples (they have more pectin in them) cored but with the skins on. Granny Smith works best. After the cranberries have popped and the apples are completely cooked, I put the sauce through a ricer to remove the skins of the cranberries and apples. The pectin in the apples helps the sauce to thicken. My family loves it. It just wouldn't be Thanksgiving without it!
