About this Cook
I am a sunbird of Sun City, Arizona. I love to cross stitch and weave baskets. My husband and I are retired and he is learning to cook. Great for me. We have more company when we are in AZ. for the winter so of course we do more cooking. I go to a lot of pot lucks and Allrecipes always comes to the rescue.
My favorite things to cook
I really don't have a favorite thing to cook but I love to try out new dishes. Most are a success.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking Easter dinner. I am Polish and we always have a traditional polish meal. Polish sausage, peroge, ham, noodles with chicken livers, of course hard boiled eggs, and rye bread and butter.
My cooking triumphs
A cake that I made for a birthday. Angel food with a light mint icing and unsweeted chocolate drizzeled along the edge. Ymmmmmm.
My cooking tragedies
Can't recall any at this time.

Chicken Salad With Bacon and Red Grapes
I have been making this salad for quite some time now and it is always a favorite with my husband. I don't change anything except sometimes I will add instead of grapes…apples or pineapple and maybe some chopped pecans.

Ham and Noodle Casserole
I loved this recipe because it is so easy to twice. I used cream of mushroom soup and added sliced raw mushrooms and frozen peas. Took the suggestion of another reviewer and used crushed Ritz crackers on the top. The biggest thing I changed is the assembly , I did not put the noodles in with the other ingredients but when I baked it, but served them separately. The noodles would have sucked up the liquid and make the casserole dry. I did bake the other ingredients for 45 min. at 350 degrees so the cheese, mushrooms and onion would cook. It was delicious. Could use tune or chicken in this also.

30 Minute Almond Chicken by Minute(R) Rice
I just made this for my husband and me for dinner tonight and loved it. The rice had a lot of flavor with the almonds and green beans. The chicken was tender and flavorfull. All I did was add salt and pepper when I was cooking the chicken. This is a keeper for sure.
