About this Cook
I sometimes enjoy cooking, sometimes its a chore. Its fun to use my imagination and make something of ingredients on hand.
My favorite things to cook
Recipes my family and my husband's family members have used for years that were always delicious. Grandma's cookies and butters. Mom's cookies and pumpkin bread. Mother-in-law's pound cakes and candy. Homemade jams, jellies, pickles, relishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving; turkey, potatoes, stuffing-not dressing, gravy.
My cooking triumphs
I'm a lucky cook on good days.
My cooking tragedies
There are days that I don't have any business in the kitchen and they usually start with an accident or a disaster and end with something scorched or burned.

Southern Pecan Pie I
I just baked this today. We couldn't wait and had a piece tonight. It tasted fine, nice, mild and not too sweet, however it did not bake completely within the 40 minutes at 350 after turning the heat down. The center 3 " seemed soggy and did not set. It puffed just fine and looked done. Perhaps it needed to bake at 375 instead or for 50 minutes. It makes a nice looking/tasting pie though. I will try it again and give it more time to bake and protect the crust edges earlier in the baking period.
