About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I don't have a favorite. I'm always open to trying something new. I decide what ingredient I want to work with and go from there.
My cooking triumphs
My latest has to be cookies. My father-in-law is in his eighties, having some health issues and I know he likes cookies. I spent the entire day before his birthday baking homemade chocolate chip, oatmeal raison, peanut butter, and white choc macadamia nut cookies. They were a big hit with the whole family that visited that day.
My cooking tragedies
I can't remember any particular one. We all have them. I put them out of my mind and move on.

Tiffany's Chocolate Chip Cookies
Made these today, turned out great. I used mini chocolate chips (that's what I had), and sprinkled sea salt on top before baking to bring out the flavor. This is a great recipe, will definitely make again. My husband said they were the best chocolate chip cookies he's ever had.

Pumpkin Roll Cake
I originally made this recipe in 2007 by Mary Gecho, which is no longer listed on this site. It is slightly different ingred., mixing inst., and pan prep. I misplaced it and have been using this one which is good, but Mary's is much better. During a recent move I found Mary's; to me the texture of hers is much better. Here it is....3 eggs, 1 cup sugar,2/3 canned pumpkin, 1 tsp lemon juice, 3/4 cup all-purp flour, 2 tsp cinnamon,1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp ginger, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, 1 cup chopped walnuts, 6 oz cream cheese,1 cup conf sugar, 1/4 cup butter, and 1/2 tsp vanilla. the directions are basically the sane except....beat eggs for 3 minutes...beat in sugar for 2 minutes.....grease the wax paper, but don't flour it, it will peel off easily.....bake 12-14 5 minutes before dumping from pan. Just a hint from me, I have found that if I sprinkle my cake with powdered sugar instead of my towel, it works much better for me. Hope you enjoy. Mary's recipe is moister, to me this one is a little dry.

Paydirt Peanut Butter Cookies
I can't tell you how many times I've made this recipe, they are great. The butter flavored shortening is very important. One time I didn't have any so I used regular, they were good, but not as good with the butter flavor. I am making again today for our family reunion tomorrow. Every time I've made these, I've had many compliments. Who cares if you need the cookie mix, if they're good, that's all that matters. Of yeah, I can't find the mix in the box any longer, so I use the bag one and add a decent dollop additional of peanut butter, still great.
