About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to make just about any sweet treat, especially if it involves cinnamon, chocolate, or butterscotch.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always bake cookies each Christmas that lasts me throughout the holiday season for different parties and family gatherings. I usually set aside one weekend in December to do this and look forward to it all holiday season. my sister and i used to bake with our mom for a fun activity when we were little, which is where my love of baking started.
My cooking triumphs
I was in the middle of making a coffee cake for work when I discovered I was out of oil. I simply substituted melted vanilla ice cream for the oil and it received more compliments than when I made it previously with the original ingredients.
My cooking tragedies
I wanted to make a special dinner for my first wedding anniversary. Instead of boiling the potatoes for homemade mashed potatoes, I baked them in the oven because I heard it would make the potato flavor stronger. Well, one thing it did not do was soften the potatoes; when I put them in the bowl and turned on the mixer, potato chunks, milk, and melted butter went flying everywhere! I was so upset, but when my husband saw what happened he started laughing, and before long, I joined in too. Bless his heart, he even ate some of the potatoes (which were definitely NOT good), because he knew how hard I worked.

Sugar Cookie Icing
This turned out really well. I used vanilla extract instead of the almond, and added an additional 1-2 tsps milk while frosting the cookies as it did get a bit thick. Before completely drying, I had added some colored sugars to make them even fancier!

Pork Chops with Mushroom Onion Gravy
These turned out good and the soup kept the chops more moist. I also left out the marjoram, and prior to adding the onions to the baking dish, I browned them for a few minutes in browning sauce. I served it with rice and broccoli and will be making again.

Pecan Sandies
I cannot believe how good these cookies are. I also used butter instead of the margarine, and they are so light, crispy and delicious! I will definitely be making these again.
