About this Cook
Didn't really begin cooking until my early 20's when I got married (unless you can call stirring/checking on what my Mom already had going as "cooking"!) Love to adapt recipes I find to my/my husband's tastes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Several years ago (15+), my siblings & I split up Thanksgiving responsibilities to ease the load on our Mom. We all have our specialties and bring them every year.
My cooking triumphs
The penultimate grilled country-style pork ribs, corn on the cob + other grilled vegetables.
My cooking tragedies
I tried a Sauerbraten recipe. It was good; my husband hated it. I promised never to make it again.

Easy Slow Cooker Ham
Mantra #1: You must, Must, MUST cover the ham ENTIRELY with the liquid to prevent the drying out of the ham.

Pork Steak and Candied Yam Bake
I don't know why, but my recipe was changed from PORK STEAKS to pork chops. I prefer pork steaks -- better value for the buck than pork chops.
