About this Cook
I learned to cook watching my southern mother and my farmer grandmother. Both were excellent cooks. They turned the simplest ingredients into the grandest of feasts. Every Thanksgiving my mother cooked for the whole Ohio family. Which was from 35 to 54 people. she was known by all as the best cook in the family. My cousins still talk of how eating at Aunt Betty's was always a treat. They called her aunt B because she reminded them of aunt Bea on the Andy Taylor tv show.
My favorite things to cook
I like making deserts the best. I guess because they are most often happy occasions or holidays. Pies & cakes are what I make the most. And they're what I'm asked to bring every time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving it's cheese cake w/cranberry topping, pumpkin pie,stuffing, turkey, mashed potatos. Mom died in 2006 but I keep her tradition going. Sometimes it's the good food that holds families together. families
My cooking tragedies
Dropping a cooked turkey! Holy on a cracker those things really fall apart! Nothing uneatable so far! WooHoo!!

Awesome Red Wine Pot Roast
I always add broth instead of water if available,or add beef cubes/paste. for better flavoring. The more intense the flavors the better in most cases. After it's fully cooked I remove all veg./meat from pan. I used corn starch to thicken the sauce in the pan then put the meat/veg back in. It coats every thing better.... much better!

Chef John's Salmon Cakes
This is a good recipe. I don't like capers very well and I thought it was to much egg. 1 egg worked fine. I have been making mine with parsley flakes, 2 slices of bread crumbled and an egg, salt & pepper, an a bash of old bay. Fry in veg. oil. You can also use a can of jack mackerel in these recipes. It's about half the cost of a can of salmon, tastes pretty similar.

Sioux Indian Pudding
Very good. Next time I will add a teaspoon of vanilla extract though. The people who didn't like it because it was to strong of molasses flavor. There are different kinds of molasses. There are three runs done on the same cane stalks. First run is mild. Tastes like a mix of molasses, honey,& buttery corn syrup. Second run is stronger more bitter,and darker. The third run is called Black strap. It's the strongest darkest run. Most of what you see in grocery stores is second and third run mixed together. I buy first run from the Amish. It's so much better tasting I eat a little of it with a spoon when using it. Easy was to tell is by color. Lighter is getter.
