About this Cook
My cooking triumphs
A friend and I found a recipe for a cheesecake that was full of chocolate cookies, chocolate syrup, Reese Cups, etc. I sat down and figured out how to make it cutting carbs and calories. When I made it, no one could tell and neither did I!
My cooking tragedies
I like to try new recipes and sometimes they don't turn out at all like you expect. Two that I'm always reminded of (by my kids!) are Cajun Eggs I made for breakfast one morning and Italian Devilled Eggs I made when we lived in Germany. I can't believe whoever came up with the recipes actually LIKED them!!

Roasted Pumpkin Seeds
I had to use a little more butter with mine but I think I should have left them in the oven a while longer. They weren't as toasty as I would have liked them. Every oven is different though and I guess it's just trial and error. Love pumpkin seeds!

Glazed Apple Cookies
I made these just like it said. The only thing I did different was just a plain glaze with milk and powdered sugar for the drizzle. They were wonderful! I hope they freeze well cause I'm gonna make some more without the icing to freeze. Have lots of apples this year. Thanx for a GREAT recipe!

Slow Cooker Swiss Steak
I used this recipe with wild boar ham steaks, left out the flour and the brown sugar, added garlic, Splenda, and green peppers. It was great with mashed potatoes!
