Thanksgiving is a time to remember the things you are thankful for.  This year I don't have to go back very far to realize just how lucky I am.  Hurricane Sandy changed many peoples lives and living at the Jersey shore gave my family a lot to be thankful for. The night of the storm was very… MORE

About this Cook
I have been happily married for 46 years and we have 2 grown children and 4 grandchildren. My son and his family live nearby and my daughter and her family live 3 hours away.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking things I can be creative with. My favorite thing to make is a new recipe. Using fresh grown herbs and home grown vegetables has added a lot of satisfaction to my cooking. I love presentation and the WOW factor! Catching fish in the morning and having them for dinner is a real treat.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Easter I hold the annual Easter Egg Hunt. Each year it grows more as the family expands. We spend Thanksgiving with my daughter's family near Hershey Pa. On even years, my son and his family join us. Good food, good times in the kitchen, good friends, and football, followed by early morning shopping and a night at Hershey Park for the kids.
My cooking triumphs
My sister and I made my mother's wedding cake when, as a widow, she married one of my dad's friends. I don't think anything could top the feeling of finding one of my recipes mentioned in a magazine.
My cooking tragedies
While delivering a cake to my husband's workplace, my little one sat on it! I took the cake home, called hubby and the guys said "bring it anyway!" Fortunately, it had plastic wrap. Also, I set off the fire alarm at Disney World's Fort Wilderness while cooking bacon. The fire car came with it's lights flashing. It was soooo embarrassing.

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes
CREAMY GOODNESS! This was so easy to put together that once I watched the video, I didn't need to read the recipe. I did use red potatoes and Velveeta cheese as that is what I had available. I served it as a side dish with Baked Teriyaki Chicken from this site. This is a recipe that I will be making again. Thank you Cathy M for sharing!

Easy Small-Batch Blueberry Jam
LOVED IT! Blueberry Tastykake pie is Hubby's favorite. I was wanting to surprise him with a home made version. I combined this recipe adding a little cornstarch and Chef John's pie dough recipe. I couldn't have asked for better. Hubby was surprised they could be made and told me to add more blueberries next time. He loved the filling and so did I!

Heinz 57(R) Copycat
VERY GOOD! I tasted this sauce after mixing and I honestly can say I thought it was going to be a loser. I refrigerated it until dinner giving the ingredients time to blend. When served with a steak it was excellent! It truly can compete with any store bought steak sauce. Thank you NWMama for sharing your recipe. I will be making it again!
