About this Cook
When I was younger, my mother rarely cooked. (She claims it's because we wouldn't eat what she fixed.) So, out of necessity, I had to learn to cook! However, I never complained because I found it to be a relaxing and enjoyable activity.
My favorite things to cook
Everything! I'll try it all! However, recipes need to include easy to find ingredients. I don't have time to look for specialty foods stores.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother always made Hot German Potato salad at Christmas. My stepmother's chocolate pecan pie and my dad's yeast rolls are a huge part of any holiday get together. They are the best!
My cooking triumphs
Cheesecake!
My cooking tragedies
Until recently, I could not master pie crust.

Mom's Zucchini Bread
Based on other reviewers and my own baking experience, I cut the sugar back to 2 cups and used 2/3 c apple-banana applesauce & 1/3 c oil instead of a full c of oil. I didn't feel like digging in my spice box for cinnamon so I used pumpkin pie spice. Very, very delicious. I think I might try using half whole wheat flour in the future and maybe cutting back on sugar by using brown sugar instead. With some tweaking, this will be my go-to zucchini bread recipe!

Pumpkin Bean Soup
I followed the reviewers advice and added curry & ginger. Delicious! I didn't have tomato sauce on hand so I used a can of diced tomatoes and a shot of tomato paste. Fantastic way to use up leftover ingredients from Thanksgiving!

Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie
I've made this pie for Thanksgiving and Christmas for three years now. It's a favorite in our family. I've used both bourbon and whiskey. I often mix dark and milk chocolate chips. The recipe is great as written - the only variation depends on the type of alcohol. Strong whiskeys and bourbons (like Jack Daniels) need to be cut back to 3 tbls. Smoother, lighter alcohol (like Gentleman Jack) as written.
