About this Cook
I finally moved out and am trying to teach myself how to cook from my mother's 50 year old cook book that's the size of a tomb. Many adventures have been had and will continue to be had with any luck. I've already got a following of fans for my cooking who will descend on the house like a plague if I mention the word "baking".
My favorite things to cook
Pumpkin Pie and Apple Dumplings. So basically deserts. Oh and Scones.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Madame Benoit Cookbook. My mother learned how to cook it and now I am. It's truly the bible of all cookbooks.
My cooking triumphs
My Family's Traditional German Beef Stew. What has now been known as my Awesome Apple Dumplings.
My cooking tragedies
Pie Dough...

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
One of my favorite chicken recipes. I also make the spice mix and use it for a lot of other things as well!

Wellesley Fudge Cake I
One of my favorite chocolate cake recipes! I've made it many a time and people love it. It's super moist and the flavor of chocolate is great, not too sweet.
