About this Cook

My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sauce from scratch. Bread from scratch. Pasta from scratch. All the cakes, cookies, and pies for all occasions.
My cooking triumphs
Have made 4 wedding cakes.
My cooking tragedies
First thing I tried to make was a cake. Used a rubber spatula to try to scrape down the batter in the mixer bowl while the mixer was still running. Uh oh.

Irish Soda Bread
This was the absolute best soda bread that I've ever had. Makes a nice high loaf that is moist and sweet. Everyone loved it. This will be my new soda bread recipe from now on. I don't think it could get any better than this. Thanks Penguin Lady. You're a genius.
