About this Cook
Mother of four and husband to one; married for 20+ years. Home schooled for six years--these were my most interesting cooking years. You have to stretch your cooking muscle to keep their interest.
My favorite things to cook
Anything hearty, quick and easy that uses fresh ingredients. We are all hearty eaters in this house.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I use to run a gingerbread house workshop that many still ask me about. I will do this again someday.
My cooking triumphs
A few recipes that I "invented" when the kids were wee little things and I was a food happy shut-in. They still receive rave reviews when I bring them to gatherings. Makes being a stay-at-home mother a dream job...
My cooking tragedies
I left the leavening out of some scratch blondies. My then 8 year old daughter worried for years ever after whether or not I knew what I was doing when I began to bake. *sigh*

Wonderful! I cooked them exactly as Chef John suggested and my family loved them! I cook brunch only a few times a year and when I do I serve up decadence and these suit. Three cheers for a gifted chef! Keep up the good work!

Simple Orange Glaze
The recipe is on to something but it needs work: The addition of butter is critical since without it the glaze lacks body. Plus, as stated above, much more juice is needed to achieve a glaze consistency.

Bread Pudding II
This is a wonderful basic recipe! I have made this several times as is and with some personal additions. One of my families favorites is to gradually incorporate milk into 1/3 c of dutch-processed cocoa, then add it to the eggs & sugar mixture. Pour over bread. Fold in 1/3-1/2 c of dark chocolate morsels. Sprinkle with coconut and pecan pieces and bake. Voila! (I have added a photo of this creation)
