About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy making anything that's bad for your waistline! Cookies, cakes, brownies, you know, the stuff your doctor tells you not to eat.
My cooking triumphs
German apple cake for 200 people.
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 15 years old, I attempted to make a sponge cake. Although I don't remember the details, my memory tells me it was awful and ended up in the trash. I've been thinking a lot about sponge cakes lately. I think I want to take another stab at making one. Hopefully I can add it to my cooking triumphs!!

Chewy Sugar Cookies
I didn't have any margarine so i used about one cup butter. Also cut the sugar back by 1/4 cup. Added 1 package True Lemon powder to 1/2 dough. If you like sugar cookies, this is good recipe. Personally I'd rather have chocolate.

Favorite Banana Blueberry Quick Bread
Like many other people, I made some changes: 3/4 cup fresh blueberries, 1.5 cup flour, 1/4 cup oatbran, 1/4 cup margarine, 1/4 cup pumpkin puree, 2/3 cup sugar, 1/4 tsp allspice, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp banana flavoring. Made 16 muffins. Baked 20 minutes. Very tasty. Banana flavoring brings out the taste of the bananas.

Date Nut Loaf Cake
Very good loaf. I cut sugar to 3/4 cup, exchange 1/4 cup water with Captain Morgan Spiced Rum which I marinated the dates in for a couple hours, used 2 tsp rum flavor instead of vanilla. Also cut back the butter a bit, maybe 2 tablespoons. Baked for 40 minutes. Turned out very moist & tasty. When cooking the dates, don't allow all the liquid to cook out. Bring them to boil, stir in sugar & butter, then remove from stove. Makes for moist loaf.
