About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook in my slow cooker. I especially love one dish meals. I love to make what I call concoctions.

Roll About Sugar Cookies
Would give it zero stars if I could. I made a batch, it was doughy and sticky, I threw it out thinking I made a mistake. Made another batch, same thing. I tried rolling it out and cutting the shapes, it was a mess. They turned out more like biscuits and have a very doughy taste - I even added extra sugar because of other reviews that it wasn't sweet enough. I made 12 then didn't use the rest of the dough. What a waste of money. And the sad thing was my four year old daughter and I were making these the evening before Easter. So we ended up with no cookies for guests. There was no way I was serving those.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
I LOVE this recipe. My 4 year old daughter and I absolutely love anything punpkin and expecially pumpkin pies so when I found this recipe for pumpkin bread, I knew I had to try it. It is moist and oh so tasty. Will keep making this over and over again.

Soft Gingerbread Cookies
I used this recipe for the first time this year and I will keep using it. These cookies were delicious. The dough was a little hard to work with but then again I didnt refrigerate it as my 3 year old was too excited to wait. I will definitely refrigerate it next time. I sprinkled flour on the counter and on the rolling pin and with a LOT of effort it rolled out fine for me to cut the shapes. Probably would have been less work had I chilled it first. Oh well, next time I will - and there will be a next time.

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
