About this Cook
First time mom at 40. Very creative person and that spills into my cooking. I love to try new and unusual recipes and ingredients. I come from a family that enjoys being together and eating together. I do a lot of home-style cooking with a twist.
My favorite things to cook
I most enjoy making pies, desserts, ice creams, fondue. I have an herb garden and love using it.
My cooking triumphs
Honey Rosemary ice cream with apple walnut tart.

Chocolate Pecan Pie III
What did I do wrong? The taste gets a 5, but my pie was more like soup! I am an experienced baker and followed recipe exactly except I used a very dark cocoa powder and I baked the pie an additional 15 mintues because I could tell it was not setting up. I could not really call it a pie. It really was a mess. Again, the flavor was there, but I would not make again without major revisions. Perhpas adding some flour?

Cheesy Potato and Corn Chowder
This soup was fantastic. I was skeptical because of the weird combo of ingredients (gravy mix?), but it really was easy and tasted great. I may try the shredded cheddar instead of the velveeta--that stuff just scares me--but it sure tasted good.

Potato Leek Soup III
I used 1-1/2 cups butter and added one clove of garlic to leeks. Next time I will use two cloves. I used homemade chicken stock which I think helped give it a richer flavoer. I pureed the soup and it was a great consistency. Garnished with bacon bits. A big hit for my tiny dinner party.
