About this Cook
Love trying new recipes, especially those that are nutritional, tasty and healthy.
My favorite things to cook
Slow cooking is great; kitchen heats up less plus little time spent on my feet - the rewards are great. Testing/making cinnamon/pecan roll recipes. Trying other cooks recipes, with my variations.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Following in Mom's footsteps: baking mega Christmas cookies with family for family, friends and acquaintances. Making her 'famous' Crumb Cake recipe, especially on her birthdays.
My cooking triumphs
Having my family eat everything on their plate, which might consist of a new recipe with changes or self-made gulosh (throw everything in, but the kitchen sink).
My cooking tragedies
Without realizing it, I found how to bake "rocks" to paint for Christmas/seasonal gifts. When a biscuit/roll recipe called for all-purpose floor, I used only whole wheat flour. During process of making, I had great difficulty rolling out the dough. The test came after baking "my" recipe - it tasted yucky! A family member reminded me (after I made the mess) that whole wheat is more fibrous than AP flour. So either add more liquid or use half and half flour!!

Isaac's Carrot Cake
Very moist, very good even though a bit too sweet for me! Great idea substituting pineapple with mandarin oranges. Recipe calls for 11 oz canned oranges. Stores in my area sell only 15 oz cans. Was hard to know how to measure 11 oz, so I added all 15 oz to recipe. Used rest of ingredients as called for, except I substituted vegetable oil with organic coconut oil. Could be the extra 4 oz of mandarins with combo of 2 cups of sugar made it too sweet for my taste. When making next batch, I'll reduce sugar or lesser oranges. Prep time was more than 15 minutes. Took 45 minutes between measuring, shredding carrots, and beating mixture. Baked 45 minutes. Cake's been refrigerated for three days; still a bit sweeter for me. After microwaving a piece, I spread soft butter on it and enjoyed it. Thanks for submitting your recipe.o

Bisquick(R) Bars
Good choice in making. Cake/bars have good texture; crunchy. Great eating cold; haven't tried warming. Not too sweet, just right for my taste buds. Had no Bisquick mix so used Kroger Brand Buttermilk Pancake and Waffle Mix. No bagged brown sugar so used 2 cups of loose light brown sugar. Since no mention whether to use sweetened or unsweetened flaked coconut I used unsweetened since mix had brown sugar. Roasted walnuts then chopped with Super Salad Shooter. Kept batter in oven a bit too long (35 minutes). Cake fell in the middle before removing. Doesn't hurt the flavor; tastes great. Hint: roasting nuts gives them a golden color and intensifies their flavor plus adds crunch when a recipe calls for nuts. To roast, spread nuts in a single layer on a shallow baking pan. Bake for 8-10 min in 350 degree oven or until lightly toasted. Stir occasionally. Once cooled, chop nuts.

Pumpkin Pie Coffee Cake
Edited 11/23/12 - 24 hours after baking, family said this recipe to be a winner. Did not think so, however, an hour after baking. Original comment dated 11/21/12 - I was really hoping to take a sweet treat to Thanksgiving family dinner, but it is almost tasteless. Might taste better after sitting out all night. Did not tweak recipe; followed it as written. First batter was more like cookie dough. It did not pour out of bowl. Had to spoon out with spatula and spread on bottom of 9x13 inch non-stick metal pan. Baked at 350 degrees F. First layer definitely needs more baking time; didn't add it, though. Figured the next layer would bake bottom layer as well, even after adding 10 minutes then 5. It didn't solidify like cake. Dared not leave in longer as top layer started cracking. Taste-test was disappointing. Could be my spices were not fresh enough.
