Grammie and Kalen
About this Cook
I love to travel and my husband and I love to go camping. I'm very involved in women's programs at our church. We have two wonderful grown sons, daughter-in-laws and two beautiful granddaughter's Kalen and Celine.
My favorite things to cook
I love to experiment with proven recipes, adding, subtracting, etc. Pasta dishes are fun to work with. I enjoy baking cookies always striving to make them perfect!
My favorite family cooking traditions
At Christmas time I always "do up" baskets and or festive bags with homemade goodies. Cookies, Fudge, Carmel Popcorn, Butter Almond Toffee and Old Fashioned Date Filled Cookies. All my family members look forward to being the "receiver" of these gifts.
My cooking triumphs
Because I'm always experimenting, there's always a the end.
My cooking tragedies
I tried several times in one day to make cream puffs only to find they weren't rising. I'd been using unsalted butter. After 3 or 4 times and 3 or 4 pounds of butter I finally made the switch to salted butter and they came out perfectly!

Chef John's Scones
Absolutely love this recipe. Didn't have sour creme so used Greek yogurt. I did sprinkle a little cinnamon sugar on top prior to baking too.
