About this Cook
I have an unlimited supply of fresh organic produce and I am always looking for new ways to cook/bake with it. Any and all suggestions are appreciated. No strange fruit/veggie is too strange.
My favorite things to cook
I prefer to bake. I believe I'm a much better baker than a cook, but I am still an exceptional cook. Food is wonderful.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love looking into a spice cupboard and seeing a million spices. It makes it seem like anything is possible.

Persimmon Cookies I
Love this recipe...I was looking everywhere for a recipe to use persimmons. My only changes, I substituted dried cranberries instead of raisins and used pecans instead of walnuts. I also used the same basic recipe to make muffins and bread too. If you have a sweet tooth I'd suggest using chocolate chips as well. I'm pretty sure there is nothing you can do to mess up this recipe.
