About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love, love, love to bake bread and other goodies. Family recipes passed down through the generations are my favorite ones to cook.
My cooking tragedies
My sister and I, when she was 12 and I was 14, had hot oil catch on fire while trying to make donuts for the first time. It was supposed to be a surprise for my mom. It sure was!

My Country Style Steak
This had excellent flavor! The one inch cubes didn't seem to cook all the way in an hour...they were still a little pink. Next time I will add three cups water for the gravy, the gravy cooked away after an hour and was pretty thick, but I may have had it at to high of a temp. I don't think that milk is necessary as previous posters have suggested. I will be added this recipe to my tried and true recipe book, just with an extra cup of water :)

Sugar-Free Spice Cookies
I made these cookies just as the recipe directed, although I didn't have raisins so I left them out. They actually turned out pretty good, I was a little nervous because of past reviews. A note to future reviewers. These are a healthy cookie; you can't try to compare them to a regular chocolate chip or sugar cookie for instance, they are not supposed to be super sweet. If thats the only kind of cookie you eat, you probably won't like these. That said, my family enjoyed these, they are slightly sweet, and where a definite hit with my two toddlers. I did try another batch using honey in place of half of the apple juice and I did not like that version. Anyway, I recomend this recipe (as written) to anyone looking for a good healthy cookie!

Fresh Orange Juice
This is excellent. It certainly doesn't need added sugar :) I did it by hand with a reamer which can be a little tiring on the wrist, but not bad. I don't like to use the microwave when I don't need to, so I boiled water in my teapot and let the oranges sit in the boiling water for a minute. Then I rolled them around on the counter until they felt softer. I plan on making this often!
