About this Cook
Like most girls, I grew up watching my aunts and my grandmother in the kitchen. These days I still enjoy the traditions set down by my family, but I'm always looking for the next great dish.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, Cakes, Pastas, and Soups mostly.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas baking is probably the most exciting tradition. We like to do the favorites---peanut butter cookies, gingerbread men, haystacks...but we always try something new each year.
My cooking triumphs
My potato soup and Derby pie are two of my biggest hits so far, and both recipes came from this site...SHHH!!
My cooking tragedies
I've been known to ruin biscuits on most occasions...or as my family dubs them, "hockey pucks" we go canned.

Fried Apple Pies
"Divine" and "Holy COW!" were just a few of the reactions these tasty, flaky little pies received from my guests. The ratio of apples to crust was perfection, so there isn't much of a need to change this recipe at all. STILL...because I'm always tweaking things, I did add a tbsp butter, 2 tbsp flour and more spice to the apples (1/2 tsp cloves, 1/2 tsp nutmeg) while they were cooking. The results were tender, fragrant, tiny bites of bliss! A must try!

Banana Crumb Muffins
These muffins were a hit! I was a little nervous because halfway through preparation, I realized that I had run out of baking soda and had to substitute extra baking powder (1 tsp baking soda = 2 tsp baking powder). However, they came out so moist and so dense that you wouldn't even know it! I even added some blueberries to half of the batter and WOW...great recipe, I'll be keeping this one nearby.

Cherry Pound Cake
This is the most beautiful, moist, and delicious cake that made a great addition to my holiday baking repertoire. I took the advice of most reviews here and doubled the amount of cherries, and since I didn't have a tube pan, I used a pretty rose-shaped bundt pan and it made a great presentation. I also melted down a jar of cream cheese frosting and added the remaining cherry juice to that, making a nice pink frosting-glaze for the top.
