About this Cook
I live in a rural area and work from home (medical transcription), which I love. I am married to my 2nd husband; we each have a grown son and 6 grandchildren between us. Enjoy most crafts; jewelry making, polymer clay, candle making, counted cross-stitch, as well as cooking. Have tried my hand at sewing and enjoy, but far from expert.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, casseroles, breads/rolls, grilling in the summer. Love to try new recipes. I am trying to learn more ways to use fresh ingredients for health and taste. Also exploring ways to use herbs and spices.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade everything, although I'm not adverse to using some already made ingredients in a dish, as long as it tastes good! I love applesauce made from Granny Smith apples and served warm. Love to make soups and casseroles, anything that allows me to be a little bit creative.

Chocolate Cheese Frosting
Excellent! Followed instructions exactly as given. Fluffy, smooth, creamy, rich chocolate flavor. Thanks for sharing.

Extreme Chocolate Cake
This is probably the best chocolate cake recipe I have tried, however I feel compelled to mention that both the cake and frosting recipes are on the back of the Hershey's cocoa can.

Mama D's Italian Bread
Very good bread. I really appreciate FatMama's review that talked about Italian bread in general, add more flour, dough never should be sticky. I was ready to give up because it was still sticky, thinking I had done something wrong (got a KitchenAid mixer for Christmas and still learning), but then I went back and added about another 1/3 cup of flour after reading the review. I ended up adding about an extra one-third of the amount of flour called for but eventually it all came together beautifully. I too baked it only about 28 minutes (made 2/3 of the recipe, 2 loaves). Very tasty bread and crusty. We enjoyed it with homemade bean soup while watching the snow fall :)
