About this Cook
I am and old fashion cook that loves to try new recipes. Married over twenty five years and blessed with three children. They have families of their own now, but call on me to help with cooking problems. And also to share recipes which I love. When I was first married I could hardly boil an egg. My mom did all the cooking and I was not smart enough to watch her. She was the kind of cook that didn't measure very much or follow recipes. So with the help and kindness of a great husband I learned to cook pretty much on my own. But I follow recipes and even make my own so I can share them with family and friends.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, my husband has a sweet tooth.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big Thanksgiving and Christmas meals.
My cooking triumphs
Making my own pie crust! I make a really good pie crust. And it only took me about five years to learn how!
My cooking tragedies
The hardess thing for me to learn was making my own pie crust. For some reason i just had a horrible time, sometimes the crust would fall apart other times it would hold together but be hard not flaky and tasted bad.

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
I LOVE this recipe!! I have been using it for a few years with GREAT results. However today I watched the video of this recipe and now I am confused!!!! The recipe in the video use's BAKING SODA the witten recipe use's BAKING POWDER!!!! I will keep with the baking powder because I know it works well but if I ever mix things up and use baking Soda I know it will be ok!! LOL : )
