About this Cook
My husband and i love to cook together and enjoy canning all the great things from my garden. There is nothing better than opening a jar of fresh vegetables or relish in the dead of winter. My husband and I between us have 6 daughters and 1 son, 5 grandaughters and 4 grandsons. I just retired from 35 years working as a surgical nurse and love all the time I have.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy cooking almost everything. Love soup in the winter and salads in the summer. Lots of grilling and outdoor parties in the summer and lots of sleding and snow sports in the winter.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mother and Grandmother have written down their favorite recipies and now that they are gone I have the responsibility of passing the recipes down to my daughter's and grandaughters. It is so fun to read the old recipies and to see their handwriting. It brings back such good memories to all of us.
My cooking triumphs
I decided that I would try to can peppers and used an old recipe that was my grandmothers. We really didn't like them right away but after setting 8 weeks they were the best any of ous had ever tasted. I learned to be patient from this experience.
My cooking tragedies
I really cannot get the hang of a electric cook top. I decided that every tragedie was a learning experience and if the husband covered every thing in ketchup, I probably shouldn't make it again.

Halibut with Rice Wine
This is the best sauce. I made white rice and put it over the rice and the fish. It was great we will make it a lot.

Fried Cabbage with Bacon, Onion, and Garlic
The cabbage was so good. I used the left overs for egg rolls and they were great.

Potato Salmon Patties
The patties were so good. My DH didn't want to try them but when he did I had to fight him for the last one. Used pankon instead of bread crumbs on the outside made them crispy.
