About this Cook
Hi, I live in North Pole Alaska. I am a nurse and I love to cook good tasting healthy meals. I try to cut back on the bad fats and increase the good things, without compromising on taste. My husband doesn't like to eat a lot of veggies so one of my favorite thing to do is sneak vegetables in his diet. I am getting good at it!!
My favorite things to cook
I love soups and casseroles, lots of opportunities to get veggies into the diet!!!
My cooking triumphs
I think this last Thanks giving 2010 was a triumph. I brined the turkey (we are going to do that from now on) and made the Broccoli casserole. Everything was delicious.
My cooking tragedies
A few years ago my oven was broken. The temperature gage didn't work so I had to watch what was cooking very closely and turn the oven off and on myself. We had many family and friends over and I was cooking pie. I forgot about the pies, I remembered them when smoke literally came rolling out of the oven. We had to leave the house and open all the doors and windows. I still get teased about it.

Homestyle Kalua Pork with Cabbage in a Slow Cooker
Didn't like this. I followed the directions and found it dry and tasteless.
