The Great Carrot Cake Disaster
Easter Fruit Tower
About this Cook
In my mid fifties, I signed on as a cook on a tugboat going from Seattle to Ketchikan, Alaska. Then on freighters to the Aleutians, Than Line Boast on the Mississippi.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking huge meals for crowds and baking. I fix a home cooked meal once a month for the men in our Senior Apartment Complex. They love it.

Carrot Cake III
Wonderful. It was so moist and great flavor. I could have done with half the recipe for frosting, though. It will be my only carrot cake recipe from now on. Warning: I used a springform pan and the batter ran over and all over the baking sheet underneath. I also baked it almost 2 hours. But, although messy, it's still the best tasting Carrot Cake Recipe I've ever had. Using 3 cake pans is actually just the right size.

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
Eureka-this one's it!!! After years of research and development searching for the PERFECT Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe, I have found it in this one. No burnt bottom or pesky spreading. I sometimes add a broken up candy bar to it such as "Cookies & Cream" or plain Hershey bar, but otherwise I wouldn't change a thing. I bake it for exactly 14 minutes so it will really be chewy. Thank you for making my cookie dream come true.

Streusel Topped Blueberry Muffins
To die for. Just made them as Christmas gifts and while they weren't beautiful, the taste made up for it. Very sweet, but aren't they supposed to be? Loved the streusel topping. I'll never make Baking Mix muffins again, even if I am in a hurry.
