About this Cook
My cooking triumphs
Carrot cake with cream cheese frosting! Thank goodness for the food processor that whips those carrots in to a wonderful "mulch"!
My cooking tragedies
No matter what I do, I cannot make good gravy. My husband makes excellent gravy and that is one of the reasons why I married him!

Creamy Au Gratin Potatoes
The best yet! Do not change a thing from the original recipe! However, I made two layers of potatoes and onions, with onions on top. DELICIOUS!

Baked Teriyaki Chicken
This is definitely a keeper! My husband is Asian and makes his version all the time. I generally think his has too much soy sauce or something, but this was just pleasantly right. I did not change a thing from the original recipe. I had 10 pieces and skinned half of them (hubby likes skin), put them in a corning ware dish for 1/2 an hour (too much liquid in the dish) and then transferred them to a cookie sheet with foil for the remaining 1/2 hour. Turned out perfect! The chicken pieces with skin were somewhat burned(skin only), but the skinless ones were not burned at all. Even dear hubby thought these were very good!

Homesteader Cornbread
This is the best cornbread I have ever had anywhere (including all restaurants). It is cake like without being dry, not too sweet and not to bland. Excellent! Thanks for sharing ps: Reducing the recipe using the "Servings" calculator worked just fine.
