About this Cook
I'm a truckdriver so I'm not home as much as I like to be. I'm a homebody, I contribute that to my job. I'm married, my husband being my biggest fan, 2 children.
My favorite things to cook
I really love to bake the most but I also love comfort foods.
My cooking triumphs
I hate seafood but my husband loves it. I'll try as many new seafood recipes as I can get my hands on. Because I don't eat it I have no idea what needs to be changed in the recipe when I make it. When I get the thumbs up from my husband or other tastiers I know I hit the jackpot.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot for the life of me make homemade bread, not using a breadmaker. It will just not rise to the occasion.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
I couldn't keep my hands off these and my husband wasn't any better. Usually if it doesn't have chocolate in it I'm not interested. Boy have I been put in my place with this cookie. I mistakenly put in 1 tsp of water instead of the 1 TBLS and the dough wasn't sticky like alot of reviews stated. Also I didn't flatten slightly before baking and they turned out just a tad puffy which I like better then a flat cookie. Even after 3 days without the full amount of water called for they were still soft. EXCELLENT cookie.

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
I agree with Tevans211. This recipe does not need any adjustments. I did sift the flour mixture twice, other then that this is excellent. I'm not a pancake lover because they are just too dry, but these are fluffy and light AND I didn't need a cup of syrup or a gallon of juice to help me swallow them down.

Scottish Bubbles and Squeak Patties
Don't think the ingredients are too weird to put together, it's really delicious. They remind me a little of potato pancakes, they have a hint of that potato flavor. Give it a try, you won't be sorry.
