About this Cook
I'm a Virgo and tend to be overly critical. Very rare that I leave a recipe "original". Make it as written the first time and then add or subtract to it to improve for my taste. I'm an avid knitter, scrapbooker, card maker, genealogy, photography, cat loving, painter living in the Last Best Place on earth.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake different kinds of bread. I'm not into the overbrowned, hard, dry breads though. Pies are another favorite (from scratch only--I hate frozen pie crusts and canned fillings--might as well just buy it at the store!) Fond memories of pies all the way from picking and cleaning the fruit to rolling the dough and the baking smells.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It's my table for the family Thanksgiving Dinner and Fourth of July picnic. As my children and grandchildren say--my pumpkin pie is fantastic! Swedish meatballs are also at the top of the request list. Fudge at Christmas is a joy that starts the day after Thanksgiving so it will be properly aged before Christmas.
My cooking triumphs
BBQ brisket recipe that is almost a never fail. Making and decorating wedding cakes for my niece and nephew.
My cooking tragedies
Forgot to put the sugar in the pumpkin pie one year!

Elegant Oyster Soup
To me it was a lot better when I made it the second time with modifications. I didn't add the mushrooms, artichokes, thyme, oregano and sage but added black pepper and a bit of Old Bay. I added leftover mashed potatoes for thickening and left out the flour. I also used half and half in place of the cream and canned oysters.

Easy Apple Coleslaw
Love it. Per my personal preference, I decreased the cabbage to 2 cups and increased the apples and carrots to 3 each. The last time I made it I also added more peppers so I had orange, red and yellow ones. Very colorful and tasty. Very versatile recipe. Thank you.

Beef Pho
Lots of flavors but I personally thought it was way too watery and needed alot more vegetables.
