About this Cook
I've been working from home these past few years. I enjoy hanging out with my son, gardening, painting, photography and playing in the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Pies, cakes, cookies, bread- I love baking. As for non-baking, I try to cook simple dishes using the freshest ingredients I can find.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chicken pot pie (homemade square noodles), Christmas cookies.
My cooking triumphs
Cocoa brownies are my crowning achievement. They inspire people to drive miles when they hear the brownies are about, and I must bring them to every family function.
My cooking tragedies
There have been a few.

Chocolate Pecan Pie III
I wasn't sure what to expect with this pie the reviews all over the place. I read about "hot fudge filling" and runny centers, to just a hint of chocolate. Make no mistake this is a simple pecan pie with extra layer of flavor. My pie turn out with that perfect pecan pie consistency, a little gooey with the gelatinousness filling studded with nuts. In other words it was not runny or "fudgey" in the least. However like others I used a deep dish pie plate, so I increased the cooking time by about 15-20 minutes- I waited for the center of the pie to rise like the edges before I removed it from the oven. As for the taste, brother could not quite figure out what that extra layer of flavor was- was it coffee? What is that? I told him it was a chocolate pecan pie, and he ahhh yeah, that's it. Anyway, it is delicious and it was well appreciated at Thanksgiving. I made this night before and is a five star recipe- but only after a day or so in the fridge. Therefore I highly recommend making this pie at least a day or two ahead of time and letting it sit in the chill box for a while. It seems this pie only gets better with time.

Microwave Oven Peanut Brittle
I used an adjusted cooking time for my microwave and it set up perfect. I think mine could have turned out a bit more light and crispy, but I hesitated pouring the mixture due to not having oven gloves ready and my bowl was a bit cumbersome (and hot!). My only complaint about the recipe as written is that 1.5 cups of nuts was bit too much for my taste. Next time I will only use 1 cup.
