About this Cook
Have loved baking since age of 11. Am 61 now and still bake some but not nearly as much, as kids are grown. Still enjoy it around Christmas time. Love to give Christmas gifts of baked breads and breakfast rolls.
My favorite things to cook
Breads, cakes, pies, fancy tortes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cheesecake, Christmas cookies frosted with almond-flavored frosting.
My cooking triumphs
Cut-out cakes, made to resemble cartoon characters and different objects, such as houses, cars, rocket ships, many others.
My cooking tragedies
Oven fire which set off smoke alarms and blew open the oven door.

Best Brownies
Kids at a 4th of July reunion devoured these. Very good brownies. Added chocolate chips and were irresistible.

Snickerdoodles III
These turned out very good. I used 3 cups flour, though. Think it made them a little less likely to fall in the middle and turn out flat. Very good cookies.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles
My husband loves Snickerdoodles, Seems that kids really like them, too, as they are simple and just plain good. I used all butter, though, and 3 cups flour. I always like to use butter in recipes if possible..
