About this Cook
I love food. There's nothing like reading a new cookbook and getting ideas. Years and years ago I began collecting local (preferably church or club) cookbooks during my travels. I firmly believe these contain the best recipes. I love experimenting with recipes and creating new ones all the time. Flavors and ingredients suggest different ideas and combinations which I love to try out.
My favorite things to cook
Without a doubt, my favorite things to make are cookies. I try to bake once a week for which my co-workers are grateful! I just enjoy the process of cooking and baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a family lineage of women who love to bake. Heirloom recipes interest me and I love trying out centuries old recipes passed down over the years. Those who know me always praise my baking and tell me that I should open a bakery; what I try to tell them is my sister is the better baker. She really is!

Pumpkin Gingerbread
Delicious! Everyone loved it! Made it as written with the exception of the addition of 1/4 tsp nutmeg. This recipe is a keeper!

Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds
I made these for my dad who loves nuts. He proclaimed them "Great!". Very easy to make; this one's a keeper.
