About this Cook
I enjoy life! Each day offers something new. My husband and I just returned from a mission trip to Haiti.I think missionary work is something we will pursue in our lives.I stay pretty busy being on a couple of neighborhood committees and hanging out with my 2 grandchildren!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking dinner. Dinnertime is when we all come together to share our day. I love having a new meal for everyone to try on the table or a family favorite. We like tasty casseroles as well as a great steak.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hmmm it's got to be the Thanksgiving tradition. Don't you just have to have tom turkey and dressing? I cannot imagine Thanksgiving without tons of food! We are also starting a cool monthly tradition of having the women in the family challenge the men in the family to a "creative" dinner challenge! This is fun stuff. The dinner must be original.We invite a couple of friends over to be our "judges". Fun to be had by all!
My cooking triumphs
As a teen I was the goulash queen in our house. We had goulash so often that I rarely make it today. I am known in the family for making awesome coleslaw. Most everything turns out pretty well, some better than others of course.
My cooking tragedies
Oh my gosh are you kidding me! I don't bake sweets very well. With the help of my grandkids we made a postachio cake. As we all bit into our first bite my 7 year old grandson's eyes got big as saucers. He started trying to talk and of course being Miss Manners I told him not to talk with food in his mouth. He just started pointing to his mouth and looking terrified. He finally pulled from his mouth a metal blade which had come off of the nut chopper(as I washed the chopper I had wondered why the blade looked different)! Yikes. It's a wonder he didn't shred the inside of his mouth. Needless to say no one asks for cake around our house ;)

Herb Crusted Halibut
Just caught fresh halibut in Alaska. Used some for this recipe. Delicious! I followed the recipe exactly and it was a hit at my house.I did have a couple of fillets left over so the next day for lunch we made a fish sandwich (topped it with cheddar cheese and put it on a bun). Very very good! Thanks for a great recipe Duncan!

Christmas Breakfast Sausage Casserole
This was good. It also freezes well. We cooled and cut into portions and then froze just for convenience sake. If you reheat covered in a 350 degree oven until warmed through it works really good. However, if you try to take a microwave shortcut all I can say is beware! Not so good! We did use italian seasoned croutons for the bread. Very tasty.

Melon, Mango, and Avocado Salad
This was refreshing. I made according to the recipe. I think next time I would forgo the avocado as it just didn't "fit" in for me. Excellent change of pace.
