About this Cook
I am a mother of two, and step-mother of two. I cook most family holidays for my family and my husbands family.
My favorite things to cook
I like making pies, cookies, cakes, breads, quick breads, and candies of all kinds. I also am known in my family for making decadent cheesecakes.
My cooking triumphs
I have won prizes at the State fair level for my pies.
My cooking tragedies
I once cooked a turkey for my sister-in-law, and forgot to take out the neck and giblets because I couldn't find them stuffed in the neck cavity of the turkey. She took the turkey to a family gathering, and when they were carving it, found the giblets still in the bag in the neck cavity. They all had a good laugh about that.

Red Velvet Cake
The cake came out dry after baking the required amount of time, and the frosting didn't come out FLUFFY! I had to add additional powdered sugar to even get it to the right consistency. I don't know what I did wrong, but I cooked the flour and milk to a 'thick' consistency. I want to find a different recipe to use in the future. One that isn't so dry and the frosting comes out better.

Smoked Salmon Spread
I used regular canned salmon, added about 1 t. liquid smoke, and saved the money of purchasing smoked salmon, and got more comments on it than when I used real smoked salmon.
