About this Cook
Every morning my granddaughter calls and says, "Good morning Nana. Whatcha doing? Are you baking Nana?" Hence my name, Baking Nana. I love to bake bread and never get tired of it. Yeast is additive!

My favorite things to cook
I go through phases, Asian for a while then Italian then on to something else. I love experimenting with new flavors and different spices. Some times my husband will ask if we will ever have "ordinary" food again. Once in a while I have to toss him a burger just to keep quite! Actually, he is a good sport and my favorite taste tester.
My favorite family cooking traditions
In our family if it is your birthday you get to choose the menu. We have had some really interesting meals. In March we have 5 birthdays so we do one big party - what a crazy menu that is! Christmas dinner is very traditional. Sausage rolls, Prime Rib, Yorkshire Pudding, gravy, Green beans with bacon, Mashed Potatoes (the really fattening kind) and trifle for dessert. If I were to dare to omit any of those items I would be lynched.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering really great bread is probably my biggest triumph. I am always so pleased when I create a perfect Asian dish.
My cooking tragedies
There have been a few but none so horrible that I can't laugh about them now.

Slow Cooker Thai Pork with Peppers
I had 1 pound of leftover roasted pork tenderloin leftover so I thought I would put it to work using this recipe. I mixed the sauce ingredients together in the slow cooker crock on low. I added one small onion, sliced thinly to the sauce. While that was heating, I sliced the pork and peppers. Whisked the sauce to combine and added the pork. Let cook until hot and then added the peppers. Covered and let cook for about an hour. This was very good. I would think this would be a good recipe / method to put together before heading to sports practice and with a ten Minute Rice, dinner would be ready in a flash.

My Rosy Watermelon Milk Shake
Rather than cold water, I used crushed ice. It makes a nice slushie, refreshing drink that the kids loved.
