Black Hill Ride
About this Cook
I am a grandmother of two beautiful granddaughters and love to ride my motorcycle with my husband. I enjoy canning but I really do not care about the gardening part because of my alergies. I have two beautiful dogs named Buddy and Snickers that keep me company during the winter days.
My favorite things to cook
I really love to bake and have been trying to bake a different cake each week or two.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite time to cook is Thanksgiving but since moving to Kentucky I have not had the chance because we go to my in-laws for the holiday. This year (2008) I will cook my customary Thanksgiving dinner on Saturday for a few family members so that they can see just how I really can cook.
My cooking triumphs
Making my very first carrot cake from scratch with marzipan carrots on top. My father-in-law actually thought they were real carrots.
My cooking tragedies
Teaching my oldest granddaughter how to make a pumpkin pie and forgot to put in the sugar. When we went to eat it it was TERRIBLE!!!!!

Carrot Cake
This receipe was by far the BEST Carrot Cake I have ever made. I made this for my husband to take to work and I actually received an email from one of the women he works with telling me it was the best she has ever tasted. She could not believe it had pineapple. I think that is what makes it so moist and delish!!!!!

Baked Salmon with Tropical Rice
This was a very easy way to fix salmon. I love salmon but get tired of traditional recepies. The tropical flavor was great and reminded me of be back in the Bahamas.
