About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
When I was in my early teens I substituted powdered sugar for flour in a cookie recipe and ended up making candy all over the inside of the oven. WHAT A MESS! Anise does not go with pork chops, EVER, it ends up tasting super medicinal. Believe me, I know.

Luscious Lima Bean Soup
What I really liked about this recipe is that if you sub onion for leek and shallot, you can make it from basic staples from the pantry. It was very flavorful and there are flavor tweaking options in the reviews.

Delicious Pumpkin Bread
First off, let me reiterate the advice of others, use 2 cups of sugar, one white and one brown. Also, I also liked the advice to increase the spices. (Mine totaled 2 TBSP once I finished of cinnamon, ginger and nutmeg.) Just a word of warning, don't put too much stuff into this wonderful bread or you will miss the good pumpkin flavor. On one batch I added craisins, nuts and chocolate chips. It was just too much and overpowered the subtle sweetness of the bread, but as the mistake was my own, it didn't affect my rating. ENJOY!

Holiday Pumpkin Bread
Here is an alternate for those of you who like your pumpkin bread EXTRA pumpkin-y. I added some extra pumpkin, using a whole 29 oz can of pumpkin, cut down the water to 1/3 cup and added 1 cup of sweetened flaked coconut to the basic recipe plus used walnuts AND raisins (I like lots of stuff in my quick breads). This makes 8 small loaves of bread. This loaf is great for gift giving to eat for breakfast with tea or coffee.
