About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was English. I never understood the comments about English cooking because she was a wonderful cook.. She was trained in French techniques in the Anglican church school she attended. My English granny was the neighborhood baker in a small village in England. Everyone gave her the ingredients and she made their bread, teacakes etc. I miss them both and have made recipes for my family from the things my mother taught me as a child.So we have Shrove Tuesday pancakes,lemon curd,hot cross buns,mince pies. I cook meals for shut ins and for people who need a meal or two after the hospital. I believe that a good meal is a great way to show love and concern.
My cooking tragedies
jello. I can't make it to save my life!

Quick and Easy Cheese Bread
Did add 1 cup milk. Texture was nice and moist. But...I didn't think there was enough of a cheesy taste to the bread. I just tasted salt. I used a sharp cheddar. I think next time I will use an extra sharp cheddar or add some parmesan cheese, reduce the salt. I wanted this as an appie to go with garden vegetable cream cheese. It was OK. But a nice slice of this with some unsalted butter and modification would be my idea of delish. (The original recipe is actually the Betty Crocker cheese muffin) Made this recipe again. Added 1/2c more cheese. Sprinkled top with 1T parmesan. No sugar. Kicked it up to 4 stars! Keeper. My 30 yr old son devoured the whole loaf.

Boston Baked Beans
I made a big mistake. I thought that if I made these in the crockpot they would be wonderful. Not so .Cooked them on high for 9 hours. Added water. Used lovely salt pork. Kicked up the dry mustard. Beans were boring. Wonderful ingredients. DO NOT MAKE EM IN A CROCK POT.

Broccoli Chicken Casserole I
I make this every so often when I want a fast, easy meal. I omit cheese and top with buttered breadcrumbs...no need for all those extra calories. I also add a good squeeze of lemon juice. Perhaps 1 or 2 tsp. Really brightens up the flavor. And that makes it an absolutely hearty, delicious Sunday supper. In the spring, when asparagus is less expensive, I make this casserole with bite-sized cooked asparagus. It is equally delicious and a nice thing to take to a potluck.
