It's Spring!
About this Cook
I live in Delaware Ohio on a family farm. My immediate family lives with in 1 mile of me and I wouldn't want it any other way. Besides cooking I love gardening and crafting. I love animals and have 3 dogs and 1 cat.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is Pie any kind of pie and since I have a line of people waiting for me to slice them when I take them somewhere they must be good.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma used to let me help her can tomatoes sitting on a bar stool (because I was to short to reach the counter) to this day I can't wait to get that first jar full of tomato juice.
My cooking triumphs
I made a concord grape pie from start to finish and won best of show at the local fair.
My cooking tragedies
Not really a tragedy but still trying to live it down. My first pie was peach and couldn't get a hold of mom or my 2 g-ma’s to ask if I should peal the peaches. My sister (who is a home ec. teacher) told me to leave them on. The pie was a little fuzzy, everyone got a good laugh but it did disappear. My sister a couple of years later went to a gourmet restaurant and guess what they had on the menu! So I guess I am a gourmet chef. Now my husband (who I made the first one for) helps me make pie and is always slipping skins in because he says it makes it more flavorful. All this and I still catch grief what’s a girl to do? And that is the only one I'm going to admit to.

Exquisite Pizza Sauce
Great texture. Just a little to spicy once cooked so I would add one or the other of the peppers. We didn't have a problem with it being to sweet, I checked on our regular store bought sauce and sugar is the second ingredient which surprised me.

Roasted Okra
I like Okra, and I hate black pepper but I made this recipe as stated and I L-O-V-E it. We will be growing Okra in our garden this year and this is so fast we will be going to it time and again.

Shredded Brussels Sprouts
The shreadding is very time consuming. I did it the first time I made them but now I usually just quarter them. Other than that this is a fantastic recipe and we serve it quite a bit. I also leave out the pine nuts unless I have them on hand. I don't really think it adds a lot to the recipe if you would like to leave them out.
