About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, cakes, and pies. I am trying to build up a repertoire of "real food"--not just desserts!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making southern specialties using recipes handed down from my grandmother and aunts.
My cooking triumphs
My first contribution to our family Thanksgiving--desserts made from scratch using family recipes. Luckily, they all turned out!
My cooking tragedies
I can't get the hang of rolling out cookie dough--last Christmas's gingerbread men turned out like little gingerbread blobs! Still tasted good, though!

Blackberry Jam
Easy and delicious! The cornstarch thickened up the jam just fine. Thank you for sharing this recipe.

Becca's Bruschetta
Delicious! I used "Jo's Rosemary Bread" from this site as the base, since I had made a loaf earlier in the week. This bruschetta was easy to make and had a lot of flavor. I took other reviewers' advice and let the tomato mixture marinate for a few hours. I will definitely make it again.

Easy and Delicious Mexican Pork Chops
This turned out great! I used instant brown rice, because that was all I had on hand. I used 1 c. rice, 1 can of diced tomatoes, and 3/4 c. of water with the taco seasoning and placed the pork chops and peppers on top. Baked at 350 for 40 minutes, then 10 minutes more with cheese on top and the rice turned out perfectly. Thanks for the recipe!
