About this Cook
I love to cook nice meals for my family and friends, and love to bake goodies for them as well. I am always on a hunt for a new recipe when it catches my eye. I have expanded my baking to yeast breads, and I am loving the results!
My favorite things to cook
Other then desserts of all kinds, I love to make Italian, Mexican, Asian, griiling/BBQ and just good stick to your ribs comfort foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I think the favorite family cooking traditions are Christmas cooking and baking. Love the smell of the house around Christmas with all the seasonings and spices throughout the air. I think that the smells are just as important as all the decorations we put up.
My cooking triumphs
My biggest cooking triumphs would be learning how to finally make the perfect homemade chicken and dumplings, and how to master biscuit making.
My cooking tragedies
My biggest cooking tragedy was learning as a newlywed how to master cooking/baking on a electric stove/oven. After a few slightly to well charred things like bacon, biscuits, baked mac & cheese to name a few, I learned REAL quick.

Tomato Salsa
I made 1/4 of this recipe for a trial run. Now I wish I had of done the full about. It is great! I plan on making more and can it. Because our family loves a good salsa!

Sun-dried Tomatoes I
Made this the other day/night. First time ever trying to make sun-dried at home. We all think this will be great (if any left by then) this winter in so many great soups, stews, and pastas. I tried it with both Roma and Beefsteak tomatoes. I highly recomment the Romas, as they have less juice, and did not take 14 hours the beefsteaks did. Romas were done in about 8 hours.

Homemade Tomato Sauce I
I made this for dinner two nights ago. My family all thought it needed 'something' after it was done simmering. The solution was about a scant 1/8 of a cup of sugar to cut the acidy level. I used 20 Roma tomatoes, so no need for the addition of the tomato paste. Will use this recipe for canning the bumper crop of Romas!
