About this Cook
I'm working on a family cookbook. You know, the recipes that you wonder how Grandma used to make and no one has the recipe any more.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas was always a special time of the year in my family. Baking the 'Christmas Cookies' was the most special time. They were a rolled sugar cut-out cookie that was passed down in the family for a few generations. Everyone enjoyed helping and the 'little ones' got to decorate them with sugar sprinkles and so everyone got into the act of preparing for the holiday celebrations. My children now pass on this tradition and so the recipe and the bonding during the holidays continues.
My cooking triumphs
6/2013 - My latest challenge is learning how to have wonderful dishes come out of my Turbo Cooker and the grill pan. I'm learning to modify my favorite recipes to incorporate into this new form of cooking and baking. Anything I can do to turn out wonderful food and use less energy is a win win challenge! So far, so good. Wish me luck!!
My cooking tragedies
Baked Beans - UGH!!! The dog wouldn't even eat them the first time I made them!!!{But I finally learned :-)!!} My kids still tease me about that one....

Low Carb Zucchini Pasta
Reduces the amount of carbs in your diet - check. Adds extra veggies into your diet - check. Allows your sauce or any add-ones to shine - check. This recipe is perfect as it is written. Thanks DinnerMomma for a simple and wonderful concept meal. I would not change a thing!

Meat Pie (Tourtiere)
Like many people who have a family history of this recipe, I do not, so I do not have anything to compare this to. I have made this twice now, once with all ground pork and once with lean ground beef. Both were excellent. The first time I followed directions as written. The only difference the second time was that I reduced the water to a third of a cup, a compromise between those who said it was too much water and those who said omit. I used pre-made pie crust both times and omitted the egg wash and paprika. This was a hit in our home with no leftovers. Thank you Maggie, for a wonderful recipe.

Homemade Pancake Mix
I liked the idea of mixing up all the dry ingredients ahead of time and adding the wet ingredients in the morning when everyone is hungry. What a time saver!! I even pre-measured the dry ingredients into 2 cup batches in baggies as an additional time saver, so all I had to do was dump it all into a bowl and add the wet ingredients. Flavor was not an issue; no left overs here! These are a cake type of pancake, so if you like a flatter-type of pancake, you can certainly add a little more water, but be careful not to add too much. I measured my pancakes using a1/4 cup measure and got 12 5-inch pancakes. I am thinking that these would make a nice 'Pancakes in a Jar' type of gift, too. Thanks so much for this recipe. I truly dislike that boxed stuff with mystery ingredients no one can pronounce. I would give you more stars if I could.
