About this Cook
I live in the country with my two dogs, Max and Suki. Max is a 126-lb. rottweiler and Suki is a 10-lb. cockapoo. I often have friends and family over as "guinea pigs" to try out new dishes. I love experimenting with recipes and trying new foods.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking lasagna and other pasta dishes (using homemade sauce, of course), stir fried foods, meatloaf, soups/stews, breads and desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making tons and tons of Christmas cookies to give to all my friends and family. I also love making a huge Christmas brunch with a variety of foods to choose from. Every year it seems like more and more people are stopping by for my Christmas brunches.
My cooking triumphs
Any time an experimental dish turns out GREAT.
My cooking tragedies
The first couple of times I attempted to make homemade bread. The loaves kept coming out like bricks. I was finally able to conquer the breadmaking techniques and now love making a variety of bread.

Orange Drop Cookies II
I made these cookies to use up some oranges that I had. I used fresh squeezed orange juice and freshly grated orange zest. As other reviewers suggested, I added an additional 1/2 cup of flour and baked the cookies for 11 minutes. I had no problems with my cookies spreading and becoming flat. They turned out very light and have a cake like texture. They have a delicate orange flavor and would be great with coffee, tea, or a nice glass of cold milk. I'm taking them to work tomorrow, and I am sure they will be gobbled up quickly. Thanks for an easy and tasty recipe, Barb. I will definitely be keeping this in my cookbook.

Turkey Pot Pie III
Very easy, very yummy recipe. Comfort food at its best. I used more than a cup of chopped turkey (probably closer to 2 cups). I also added some fresh parsley (chopped) and some shredded mozzerella cheese, just because I had them on hand and wanted to use them up. I also put a little salt and pepper in the filling mixture. It took a little longer to cook due to having a larger amount of the filling. The results were delicious. I will definitely be making this pot pie often. I think next time I will try it with chopped chicken. Thanks for the great and easy recipe Candy.

Bacon Ranch Pasta Salad
I made this for a covered dish luncheon and it was a HUGE hit! I didn't have the tri-colored rotini so I just used regular rotini. I also used grape tomatoes (sliced in half) instead of a large tomato (chopped). Other than that, I followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for the great recipe, Wilemon. This is definitely a keeper.
