About this Cook
I am a old hippie inpatiently waiting for retirement, which I wish was going to be sooner than later. I enjoy cooking and seldom cook the same thing twice or a recipe without some change. I love computers, knitting, new age religon, and reading.
My favorite things to cook
roasted vegetables, salads, sauces. I love salmon and ribeye, along with lots of wine, and fresh greens.

Ham and Cheese Breakfast Casserole
I have made this recipe for years putting in various fillings. I prefer it with 6 more eggs. This creates a firmer but not too firm quiche like casserole. Without the extra eggs, I found this version tasting more of the bread. I use very cheap bread which due to the air in the bread makes the caserole very light. I also have just pulled off the crusts and then made several layers of ingredients and egg mixture. I think it mixes better and the top is neater. I put sides like bacon, salsa, tomato, avocado, ham, red pepper, etc on the table and everyone can make their own favorite.

Pumpkin Gingerbread
I agree with the other reviewers. The texture was perfect. I ran out of allspice so substituted pumpkin pie spice for some of the spices. I also added molasses which may have contributed to my only complaint. It was a little too sweet, but perhaps the molasses (about 3 tablespoons) was the culprit. I did like the extra molasses taste so next time I would probably just cut back on the sugar.
