About this Cook
I do not use mixes. I cook everything from "scratch". I enjoy the feeling of satisfaction that I derive from making/baking something that is new and different than what anyone has eaten previously. Not drastically different, but just different enough to make them say hmmmmmm.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake quick breads, pies, cakes, cookies etc. I also make a mean pot of chili.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Grandmother's pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving. Turkey roasted in the old wood range. Eggless, milkless, butterless cake my Grandmother made (I still make it from her recipe too)
My cooking triumphs
Pies. I make exceptionally good (tender, flaky,) pie crust. Put most anything inside a pie crust and it tastes good.
My cooking tragedies
Roast beef is my enemy. I have never managed to become accomplished at roasting beef.

Waffle Iron Chocolate Cookies
We loved these cookie/waffles! It's a cookie, it's a waffle, it's super waffles!! They didn't stick to my waffle iron, either. I made them just for kicks and giggles, to try something new. I will definitely be making these on a regular basis. Verrrrry tasty indeed.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
These cookies are very good! Everyone who tastes them likes them! I substituted 1 tablespoon cold coffee for the water. It worked well. These would make a great house warming/welcome to the neighborhood treat. I will definitely be adding it to my big recipe box. Way to go Amy!!
