My Missy
About this Cook
Married to a master chef for +30 years has not had the learning benefits one might hope! All my expertise(?) comes from my grandmother and the mother of a family I babysat in the late 60's. I may not be a fantastic cook, but I do know how to save money in that area!
My favorite things to cook
One pot meals - Crock pot,roaster, clay baker, slow cooker. Anything that I don't have to do a lot of 'fiddling' with.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas Dinner - Always Dec. 25th no matter what! Same menu as my great-grandmother, but sometimes an added fancier dessert: Roast Turkey with bread stuffing & gravy, mashed potatoes, carrots, sweet potatoes, peas, ggm's recipe for Fruit Cake, pumpkin pie, apple pie.
My cooking triumphs
My daughter's wedding cake. Although not a baking triumph - it was just my great-grandmother's fruit cake recipe - the triumph was that everyone was amazed that I made the cake for the wedding! (Decorated by a professional of course before the big day.)
My cooking tragedies
Never a non-edible one, just one not to be repeated: oatmeal cookies in which I used granola for the oatmeal and apple sauce for the shortening - too chewy and moist. I'll stick to the original recipe only replacing the oatmeal with granola - delish!

Amazing Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake
Super! I have now done a re-calculation for 8 as the original is too much for 2 people. I use spelt flour for all my baking and carob in place of chocolate. Turns out beautifully - rich, tasty and very moist. Thank you to the person who supplied the recipe. An extra bonus...since it's so hot right now, I just put the slow cooker on the balcony - no inside heat!

Zucchini Brownies
Ok, so I made the browinies before reading the reviews. I thought the recipe was missing something as it was powdery dry before the zucchini was added. So I went back to the computer and re-read the recipe, then the reviews. No longer quite so worried, I proceded and have just taken a batch of beautiful looking brownies out of the oven. Great recipe...a keeper. PS: I also cut the sugar to 1 cup.

Blueberry Oatmeal Scones
I've made this recipe twice. I discovered that I need more flour.
