About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Any new recipe that has caught my fancy, broiled asparagus, slow cooking ANYTHING, any "traditions"-corned beef on St. Patty's, 1954 Sugar Cookies for Christmas, Bourbon and Bacon stuffing for Thanksgiving...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Extra pie crust into small jelly pocket pies...green jello with cottage cheese and pineapple at holidays...bisquick pizza crust...zucchini bread
My cooking triumphs
Leg of Lamb for Christmas 2009...many successful St. Patty's Day feasts over the years (corned beef, cabbage, soda bread, boiled potatoes)...giant Bavarian Pretzels that came out just beautifully...from-scratch cherry and apple pies
My cooking tragedies
Hollandaise sauce and artichokes...I ruined both entirely. I don't think it helped that I was trying a healthier version of the Hollandaise, and I don't know what happened to the artichoke but it was inedible. Any ideas? Fresh green beans with bacon pieces. Sounds simple, but somewhere between reserving a portion of the bacon grease to mix back in the beans, as well as chopping bacon into pieces to add to the greens, the whole thing was a greasy mess. I haven't tried again.

Roasted Onions
Great recipe! Very interesting to keep the skins on - I liked it! Just went w/ the olive oil this time but will try vinegar next. Delicious!

Puttanesca I
Oh SO good!! Excellent, excellent - could not be better. People raved, and I had to hide my forks to keep myself away from it. Very easy to make. Thank you!

Bacon and Bourbon Thanksgiving Stuffing
The Best!! Tried this out last Thanksgiving and it was so popular, two 13X9s disappeared at work and two at home! I've now made this recipe several times and will be breaking it out again for this Thanksgiving, it's becoming my signature dish--its the dark breads that really bring out the flavor. I would be careful with the chicken stock, though, add as needed.
