About this Cook
50-something mom who loves to cook! I am famous for "experimental night"--sometimes successful, sometimes not. I love to bake and collect cookbooks.
My favorite things to cook
cookies, cakes, cupcakes
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving is VERY big to our family and I host it every year. All the usual stuff plus tons of love! My mom has always made several types of Christmas cookies passed down from my German grandmother. My sisters and I carry on that tradition.
My cooking triumphs
Learning how to make the perfect 22# turkey for Thanksgiving!
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 12 and still learning, but cooking on my own, I made some oatmeal cookies. I thought something was funny about the ingredients, and when I tasted them I knew. Thank goodness no one else had to taste those salty cookies! Forever after, I taste the sugar if I am unsure before creaming with the butter!

Honey Bran Muffins
The first time I tried this recipe I realized part-way into it that I had overlooked the part about the chilling overnight. Oh, well, I just threw the All Bran in the juice with the raisins for about 10 minutes. Added the flour mixture first to the egg mixture and then stirred in the wet glop of bran and raisins. The batter was not thin; it baked up perfectly--no extra waiting! I just made them with apple juice today and they were super yummy! Thanks!

Smothered Chicken Breasts
I thought this would be fabulous, but my family thought the onions didn't fit with the rest. Not a keeper for us.

Banana Sour Cream Bread
So good!! I made this without nuts for gifts this Christmas--made 9 mini loaves (3x5"). Cooked them almost 50" at 300.
