About this Cook
I made a cookbook as a wedding gift once. Though a lot of work, to hear how much the bride and groom liked it made every minute worth it!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cookies so I can feed the masses.

Apple Dumplings I
It's been a few years since I first tried this recipe, but I had apples and biscuits on hand, so I pulled out the recipe again. I wanted to eat this for breakfast, so I made the following mods: used 4 biscuits (the ones they sell individual wrapped -- it's new), 2 fairly large gala apples; I mixed 2 Tbsp white sugar with 1 tsp cinnamon; peeled, cored, and quartered the apples and mixed with juice from half a lemon. Stirred apples with cinnamon sugar. Wrapped each dumpling and baked for 40 minutes, flipping them halfway. I skipped the sauce altogether b/c the biscuit is buttery enough. It was awesome like this. Next time I would slice the apples thinner (slice each quarter 3-4 times) so that the apples get more tender. Then I think it will have an apple pie consistency.

Cream of Celery Soup
This was so delicious! And I was just looking for a way to use a bunch of celery. My modifications: I divided everything by 3 since I was only making for 2 people -- it still lasted us 3 meals; 2% milk worked fine; butter instead of margarine; after boiling, I let it cool a bit and then blended in 2 batches, then strained through a sieve. I was left with a smooth, rich tasting soup. My husband thought it tasted like clam chowder or cream of mushroom and couldn't guess it was celery. Will definitely make again!

It's Chili by George!!
This was my first time making chili, and it was so easy. My husband said it was the best chili he ever had. I cut the recipe in half, and it'll be enough for 2 hearty meals. I used 1 can of kidney beans, 24 oz. of tomato sauce, and 14.5 oz of diced tomatoes (no salt added); skipped the green bell peppers and cayenne. I simmered for 1.5 hours in a cast iron dutch oven and served with cornbread.
