About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family background is especially significant for me. My famiy heritage is a mix of German, English, and Irish. The best part of my heritage is that my parents both talk about their parents' and grandparents' favorite recipes. I love the stories about my great grandmother Duesler mixing a bowl of cake batter on her hip with a big wooden spoon, and my grandfather Barker's famous buckaroo biscuits, venison goulash, and turtle soup.
My cooking triumphs
Rippy-Dippy Bread. Enough Said.
My cooking tragedies
Hmmm....Well, my first cake was a literal flop. I was about 15 years old and decided to make my dad's favorite- banana cake. All went well until the part about how to tell when a cake is done. I poked it with a toothpick, and decided it must be done since the alotted minutes had past. However, when we cut the cake, what did we find? Mostly pudding. HAHA. My dad ate it though, he said that next to banana cake, banana pudding was his favorite!

Spiced Butternut Squash Soup
Very good soup. Out of necessity, I used one medium butternut squash, 2 TB bacon grease, 2 leeks, 3 cloves garlic, 6 cups chicken broth, no potatoes, no onions, and white wine instead of sherry. It was still delicious.

Beet Soup
Great! I followed the advice to make sure the beets were thoroughly cooked before pureeing. Very smooth and tasty.

Oatmeal Blueberry Muffins
Great recipe. I used some of the suggestions from other reviews, like adding more blueberries. So moist and yummy.
