About this Cook
In my "early years," I loved to cook, with steaks and pastas high on my list. Eventually, I became a nut for casseroles and stir-fry. Over the last few years of venturing back and forth between pot roasts, fish fillets, and fast/easy to prepare run-out-the-door entrees, I'm finding my niche.
My favorite things to cook
I love Spam. LOL! Spam, tuna, eggs, noodles, mixed veggies and canned soup are staples in my kitchen. Corn flakes and onion potato chip crunchies are awesome! My true love, tho, is recreating my favorite restaurant dishes such as pesto salmon and chocolate creme brulee.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every X-mas, my mom, sister and I make "Grandma's Cookies." This recipe has been a tradition for over 50 years. (Maybe more.) The secret ingredients are home grown apples made into applesauce and, of course, chocolate chips!
My cooking triumphs
BBQ'd bacon-wrapped fillet mignon, baked lobster tails, and boiled cajun shrimp, with a variety green leaf salad and ginger-honey sesame seed dressing: All served to a group of friends, right on time and al dente!
My cooking tragedies
20 years ago, I was cooking the Thanksgiving feast. I arose early to prepare the refrigerated turkey and found it still frozen solid. (Three days in the fridge!) Dinner, originally scheduled for 2pm, became dinner at 7pm. Even though the food was edible, the baked green beans were dry, the bread slightly burnt, and the stuffing gooey, etc...

Glazed Corned Beef
I've made this at least 10 times and it is still my family's favorite way to eat Corned Beef. I don't change anything. It is served with carrots, cabbage and/or sauerkraut and/or dilled potatoes. The leftover beef makes the most ultimate sandwiches on rye using French/Russian dressing mixed together and slathered on with sprinkles of caraway seeds and sauerkraut.

Artichoke Spinach Lasagna
Made this "pot style" by using pre-cooked mac noodles. After adding the pasta sauce (step 3), I let this simmer for 20 mins. Added mac noodles and some mozzarella and cotija cheeses. Let them blend/warm and served with a bit more cheese on top. Fantastic and so easy!

Slow Cooker Sauerkraut and Sausage
Fantastic! Made exactly as written - nothing altered. Served it with garlic mashed potatoes. Hubby devoured it.
