About this Cook
I love to grow unique and special foods in my garden then prepare them in the kitchen. MY fresh herbs are wonderful and my professional chef son-in-law really enjoys the bounty. I have learned much from him and he has also learned from me.
My favorite things to cook
Varies by mood and what is in the garden and in the pantry. Breads Pies
My favorite family cooking traditions
PANTRY COOKING - see what you have in the pantry and then put somethig together using these items. No recipe allowed.... just think it up
My cooking triumphs
Skillet meal using ground meat, various veggies, and mashed potatoes on top... chef son of law loved it and wanted the recipe... only problem.... there wasn't one... another pantry meal
My cooking tragedies
Burnt toast!!!!! I mean really burnt.

Make Ahead Pie Crusts
This is my third time to use this recipe and I sincerely hope it is better with the modifications I have made. The two previous batches were made exactly as directed but the resulting crusts were balls of grease...there is either TOO MUCH SHORTENING or TOO LITTLE FLOUR...same difference....additionally it needs salt. These are the changes I have made. 7 lbs flour, 3 lbs shortening, 2 T salt, 28 oz soda. Wish me good results as I REALLY need a good bulk pie crust recipe.
