About this Cook
I haven't used many cookbooks although I had over 400 at one time. I read them like one would read a good book. Loved the pictures! Only 2 of us, but I always end up making too much of anything. Love to make mixes to keep on hand. Easier to fix something in a hurry. No salad is complete without avacado and homemade Ranch. Hubby says I use every pot, pan and dish in the kitchen when I cook. He knows--he does the dishes! Ha Ha!
My favorite things to cook
Anything Mexican--tamales, enchiladas, tortillos, guacamole, pico de gallo,casseroles YUM! Anything pumpkin--cupcakes, muffins, bread cake, pie, ice cream YUM! Comfort foods

French Macaroons
No, I didn't make these but I did read the previous review and she had problems getting the macaroons off the paper. I pipe almond macaroons onto parchment paper and to remove them, I turn the paper over and wet the bottom with just enough water to soak through and loosen the macaroons. A second or two will do it and you can peel them off.

Harvard Beets
My mother's recipe was simple and delicious. She made the best Harvard beets. I use the recipe to can a whole garden of beets. She used equal parts beet juice, vinegar, and sugar. The beets were cleaned and cooked and the peelings removed. The juice from the beets, plus sugar, and vinegar were measured equally and mixed. Beets were sliced and popped into jars with juice poured leaving 1" room at the top. Save juice in case you need more. Can as directed. These are THE BEST. Someone once gave my mother $20 to can a bunch of beets from the store. Worth every penny!
