About this Cook
Married for 30+ years. One son, 25, in college and at home. Registered nurse working 50+ hours outside the home. I like to cook when I have time to enjoy it.
My favorite things to cook
All things gluten free...
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom was a great cook - she did it all. She made yogurt, baked bread, and had a garden and canned everything that came out of our garden. Christmas holidays were awesome with 35 people gathered around the table. Everyone knew her for her pie crusts, cakes and cookies...but I hardly have any of my mom's favorite recipes - so I've used the Allrecipes site to locate those recipes that I loved growing up - summer salads, holiday dishes, kolaches, goulash, stuffed grape leaves, oxtail soup, and oyster stew.
My cooking triumphs
Since 2000 when I joined Allrecipes, I've had a lot of triumphs... Since going Gluten Free, I'm learning how to make any recipe GF - which is kind of neat! My recent GF successes: Spicy Chicken Rice Soup, Creamy Chicken and Wild Rice Soup Recipe, Alyson's Broccoli Salad Recipe, Salmon Chowder, Rice, Black Bean & Feta Salad, Pork Chop and Feta Skillet!
My cooking tragedies
Since I experiment a lot, I also get in trouble. The worst was when I burned the rice in the microwave, and ended up having to put the smoking pot outside my kitchen door!

Aw-some Cole Slaw
My family loves a sweet cole slaw, and this recipe made them happy. I used my mini food processor, and it chopped everything up fine - like in the restaurant. I made it and let it set for an hour, while everyone was gathering, and served it. The huge bowl was gone in 5 minutes, and my husband was licking the bowl. Thanks for sharing this great recipe!

Tuna Noodle Casserole from Scratch
Hubby loved it and says it is a "5"! It is very forgiving, since I did not have all the ingredients, and had to convert it to gluten free. I used gluten free penne noodles, omitted the celery (didn't have any) and used loosely chopped mushrooms. For the roux, I used 1/4 cup potato flour and 2% milk and butter. For the topping I used crushed GF cheese crackers, omitting the butter and cheese. Everything else was added as written. It went into the frig, until I pulled it out 48 hours later... I poured 1/2 cup 2% milk around the edges/middle of the casserole as it had dried out in the frig over the last two days. It baked perfectly in 45 minutes to the cheer of the family gathered at the table. Thank you for sharing this recipe! I look forward to adding it to my regular rotation.

Healthy Garden Salad
hubby wasn't sure about edamame and combination of everything together. Easy to put together, and it had aa nice medley of flavors. It was very satisfying.
