About this Cook
I'm the mother of a family blend of four grown children, with nine grandchildren.
My favorite things to cook
Baking bread, baking brownies, baking cake, baking....
My favorite family cooking traditions
We're an average Midwest family- we enjoy a variety of typical farm food, a little Asian, a little Tex-Mex, a little of this, a little of that. We dabble in variety, but come back to our Midwestern roots for favorites.
My cooking triumphs
Putting food on the table, snacks in the cupboard and drinks in the fridge is a triumph all its own. A lifetime of effort to keep the family well-fed and happy.
My cooking tragedies
No real tragedies; I love to try new recipes and not all recipes please every person. No flames, mo charred pans...yet.

Brownie In a Mug
More cakey than brownie. A quick chocolate fix than I really appreciated, despite the calorie count. I might play with this a bit. I used butter instead of the olive oil.

Chinese Pepper Steak
Very good. I used the little yellow, red and orange peppers in place of the bell pepper and used some tomatoes that I had diced for salad. I did not double the sauce, and wished that I had. The recipe does not say to add the sauce to the dish, but I added it and served it over brown rice. I'll definitely be making this again.

Asian Beef with Snow Peas
Very good; a little too salty for my taste, but we seldom use salt. I halved the meat and vegetable, essentially doubling the sauce recipe. I used low-sodium soy sauce, rice vinegar (white), and halved the garlic as we don't use a lot of garlic. I served it over brown rice. I'll be making this again soon with a wider assortment of vegetables.
