About this Cook
When I am bored or get depressed I like to cook and bake things. I especially like making desserts. I love watching Cook's Country from America's Test Kitchen. I like cooking recipes from cook books from the 1950's. I have learned a lot about cooking in the past few years just from trial and error and have learned a great deal from that process.
My favorite things to cook
I like to cook things with fresh ingredients. My first love is baking always has been. As far as cooking goes I truly enjoy all American hardy country type meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was an excellent cook and made everything from scratch. I didn't even eat store bought bread until I was a teenager. My mom was a meat and potatoes kind of cook, I keep with the tradition but like to add a touch of something extra. I tend to use more exotic ingredients versus the classic all American fare. My in-laws are also fabulous cooks and have given me several recipe's that I use in my every day cooking.
My cooking triumphs
I can cook my mom's stuffing from memory!
My cooking tragedies
I once made a hamburger pie type thing stuffed with cheese and it turned black and rock hard. We gave it the name meteor pie! It was disgusting and I will never attempt that one again.

This applesauce was wonderful. I added some nutmeg and some powdered vanilla to it to jazz it up a little more. I also didn't love the chunky consistency so I threw mine in the blender and pulsed it a few times. I will for sure make this recipe again.

Spiced Pecan Crust
I just made this crust with my first pecan pie, it was super easy and taste great. My husband said it was the best pie crust he ever had with a pie.
