About this Cook
I could live in my kitchen! I have had a business Maine Gourmet for years which has consisted of specialty chocolates, brittles, carmels, toffee and the like. I have kinda slowed down on the outside sales and promoting.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make breads, appetizers and deserts. Cook alot of comfort foods. I love going through recipe books, magazines and online recipe sites.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mollasse cookies used to be every Christmas decorated with frostings until I started covering them in chocolate and people got tasting, then they got made year round.
My cooking triumphs
Realizing how amazing silpats are!
My cooking tragedies
Prob lots over the years but the one that follows me is I don't make an especially good chocolate chip cookie unless they are like 6x6 or larger in size. I don't know why but my regular size just aren't as good or nice looking. To me that's a tragedy it's a simple thing.

Candied Almonds
I tried this recipe and followed exactly they burnt before the liquid was close to being gone. I cooked them on 4 for heat, I have an electric stove. I make alot of brittles,and hard candies so I am not sure what went wrong. I did stand and stir them with a wooden spoon the entire time. I rated in between bec of my problems

My Favorite Sugar Cookies
I am not sure why so many people had trouble with this recipe. I followed it but mixed my shortening, & sugar then put in my eggs, mixed, and then the rest of the ingredients only adding flour a cup at a time. Because some said it was dry I added an extra tbsp of milk and this dough was perfect for a roll out cookie. I only left it in the fridge for 2 hours bec I was short on time. If you were mixing the dough and see it was getting crumbly why would you continue to add flour? I stopped at 3 cups. The taste for a plain sugar cookie is comparable to other recipes. I also used butter flavored crisco. I think you should give this recipe a second chance.

Turtles(R) Cookies II
The only thing I did was put my nuts in the dough that egg wash rolling. I only had walnuts today so thats what I used, and I had homemade carmel so used that. The indents were ok but who needs an indent spread the whole top with carmel then chocolate! I also used my tiny ice cream scoop to scoop the dough.
