About this Cook
I was married to an Air Force weather forecaster so we lived just about everywhere, all over the US, Europe, and Phillipines, thus my great interest in foreign foods. I'm disabled now, so have almost given up the kitchen, I still try, but I'm afraid I get in the way with my walker. That's OK. I can still choose the menu and say how I want it done. I LOVE overseeing new recipes, my recipe box is a wonderful idea, thanks.
My favorite things to cook
Thanksgiving Dinner, Turkey with cornbread dressing and the pecan pies, pumpkin pies, mince pies, etc. From France, coq au vin and peasant foods like chou croute; from the Islands Pork Adobo(or chicken),Pancit, and Lumpia.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The way everybody seemed to enjoy helping in the kitchen, they made it fun.All four kids and their "Dad". He did the outside cooking (he was good at it) and all the "He Man" dishes, chili casserole,gumbo, red beans and rice,etc. And even with four teens, they were home for dinner every night.
My cooking tragedies
When I was quite young I baked a turkey with the giblet bag still inside and served it to company.

Sloppy Joes I
I've been making these sloppy Joes for over 50 years. They were included in a Campbell's Soup ad and with the three or four others, were called "Soup-er Burgers" Every one was delicious but I believe this was my favorite. Now, my great grandchildren enjoy them as much as their grandparents did.

Angel Chicken Pasta
I served this today and have had to run copies of the recipe off for both my daughters to take home . Don't change a thing, it's perfect, very tender and moist chicken and the sauce is delicious. A plus is that it is so very simple to make.

Perfect Pumpkin Pie
I made one with a regular crust and one with a graham cracker crust. Both got rave reviews. So just use the one that suits your fancy.
