About this Cook
I have recently become interested in cooking for fun instead of it being a chore, and loving every minute of it. Who knew it was possible...
My favorite things to cook
Chicken, shrimp, pasta, salads and dressings, beans.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Home cooked meals every evening. Truly an inspiration. My sister's chocolate cake, the best in the world.
My cooking triumphs
Preparing a menu for a dinner party of six, pulling it off and being pleased with every bit, even dessert. Truly a miracle.
My cooking tragedies
Baking soda cupcakes, texas hash, carrot cake and cream cheese icing, anything involving eggs.

Grandma Johnson's Scones
Love this recipe! I use 1 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries instead of raisins in mine (work quickly once you get the blueberries in or your scones will be a nice purple colour!). I agree with some other reviewers that the cook time is at least 10 minutes longer than the recipe says...so much of that depends on thickness, etc, and the fact that I put frozen fruit inside. Regardless, this is a recipe I always make for brunches and company. I love it!

Vegetarian Korma
Oh my.....this was delicious! I doubled the ginger and useddried red chiles since I didn't have a jalapeno pepper. Awesome!! The cooking time was much longer than the recipe calls for, but well worth the wait. Yummmm.....

Apple Walnut Salad with Cranberry Vinaigrette
Delicious recipe! Be sure to add the dressing gradually to the greens; I had way more dressing that I needed and it would have been overpowering if I used it all at once. The walnuts finish it off beautifully.
