About this Cook
i am a retired social worker. grown kids and grandchildren. cats and dogs rule the house. i beat cancer. this time....
My favorite things to cook
holiday foods. candies and breads and cookies are my favorites. then will come the food itself. little special things done to our food to make us roll our eyes and say, "oh wow".
My favorite family cooking traditions
there is only one good way to make good cornbread. it's important to remember what granny said when she was giving instructions on her recipes.
My cooking triumphs
actually, many of these triumphs come from here. good recipes are a must for trying new things. between the good instructions and the terrific and honest reviews, i feel more comfortable going in on the beginning of a recipe, knowing i have them at my back.
My cooking tragedies
honey mustard does not go with everything. i'm just saying.

Mrs. Sigg's Fresh Pumpkin Pie
my sugar pumkin was from holloween stock and purchased for 10 cents. i cut up and baked the cleaned pumkin and mashed it up with a fork and added it to the creamed eggs and brown sugar. the brown sugar was a splenda product and low in calories. i was out of pumpkin pie spice and substituted equal amounts of tai chai spice. i added 1/4 tsps of ginger, allspice and cinnamin into the brown sugar and egg mix. when the pumpkin was mixed in well it was turned out into a frozen shell and cooked as spoken in the recipe and stored overnight for the flavors to meld. it is the best pie with pumpkin in it that i have ever had. i bet you could substitute and kind of squash or sweet potato of the sqishable persuasion. yum.
