About this Cook
I work full time for a local school district, and have a sewing business on the side. I have been sewing for weddings since I was 15. In my spare time I like to bake for my 10 grandchildren.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts have always been my specialty, I love baking. But now I have to stay away from wheat and sugar, so I am experimenting with baking without them. I also love hot and spicy, so my cooking is heading more in that direction and away from the sweets.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am of German ancenstry and have some recipes that have been handed down, but most of my cooking has been influenced by the many places I have lived or visited. I guess moving about every 2 years while growing up had some possitive influence!

Cranberry or Pineapple Caramels
The cranberry caramels are a little softer than the pineapple ones. Roll the cooled cranberry caramels into balls and chocolate dip them. They make a wonderful soft center chocolate!

Baked Yam and Potato Casserole
I tripled this and put it in a large baking dish for Easter. I had extra whipping cream, so used a little as part of the broth. Everyone loved it!

Pumpkin Waffles with Apple Cider Syrup
I can't eat wheat, so substituted whole spelt flour instead. The waffles were great and we loved the apple cider syrup!
