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....

J.P.'s Big Daddy Biscuits
I have been remiss in rating this recipe. These are the very best biscuits ever, and they are the ONLY ones I make. I have tried others, but always come back to this recipe. I don't use a cutter or glass to form the biscuits though. I just use a knife and cut them into squares - saves time, don't have to re-roll to use up the dough, and doesn't effect the final biscuit. Thanks J. P.

Blueberry Zucchini Bread
Love this recipe. I lost my stand-by recipe, and thrilled to find this one. It is even better than my old recipe - moist, tender, and loved by the whole family! I plan to take this to an upcoming pot luck dinner. I did not change any ingredients, but I didn't make it as bread. This makes a wonderful cake baked in a 9"x13" greased cake pan and baked for 55 minutes. Test with a tooth pick to be sure the center is done. When it came out of the oven, I dusted the top with powdered sugar. Let cool completely and cover. The next day the powdered sugar will have 'melted' into the cake. Serve with whipped topping if desired (my hubby's favorite way to eat this cake). Although you can serve this the same day it is baked, it is even better the next day. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'm sure this would make wonderful bread, but we like it as a cake :-).
