About this Cook
I have had disasters in cooking and triumphs.
My favorite things to cook
I bake cakes for each of the people at work when it is their birthday and we have potlucks once a month and if it's your birthday, you don't have to fix anything, but I always do. It gives me a chance to try lots of things
My favorite family cooking traditions
Not sure. My kids like divinity and other things.
My cooking triumphs
I bake great cakes. Allrecipes helps me out a lot!
My cooking tragedies
Usually spilling something and some combinations that I try don't work---disappointing!

New England-Style Clam Chowder
Most recipes lack the tarragon, but it adds a kick that no other spice seems to carry in clam chowder recipes. The Worcestershire sauce adds a pleasant depth. I always cook my clam chowder with bacon (4 slices) because it's more mild than salt pork. Also, clam juice is relatively expensive, so I used only one small bottle of it (1 cup) and added 4 cups of water and made up for the flavor with ground shrimp powder (from the local Mexican food store's spice aisle) just until I thought it tasted okay without being overpowering. It was good! Basil and thyme are also good spices to add (1/2 tsp. of each). Instead of two cups heavy cream, I used one cup half and half and one package neufchatel cream cheese. It's your choice what to use. It would be a great recipe even without the changes I mentioned. My compliments to Terry for a recipe that is very flavorful and true to a great restaurant style clam chowder.

Chocolate Bar Pie I
Excellent, but remember if you used Cool Whip, you are adding sugar to the recipe. If you used whipping cream, you probably don't add any sugar to it, and maybe that's why it might have seemed sweet to those who used Cool Whip instead. Just a guess.

Neapolitan Cupcakes
I'm not sure why it wasn't very goo, but the icing definitely helped a little.
