About this Cook
Greets! I am a stay at home mom who loves to cook and entertain. My hobbies are varried and include medieval re enactment, so i really enjoy cooking from pre 17th century sources.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. Doesn't matter if it is a desert, bread, meat or veggie. I love to experiment with international foods as well. Things from all over the world.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There aren't many "traditions" in my family. so in a way i enjoy creating them. Thanksgiving is the biggest cooking holliday for me so i guess my biggest tradition would be making as good as my grandmother used to make it.
My cooking triumphs
Here i have had too many to enumerate on. My most recent was turning 20 pounds of green tomatoes from the garden into salsa verde.
My cooking tragedies
Its been since april since my last tragedy. It was a dish from the 14th or 15th century that sounded good but turned out horrid and gray!

Una's Cheddar Beer Bread (bread machine dough cycle)
I didn't use a bread machine and here is what I found. The milk curdled when added to the beer. I warmed the beer, butter and milk then added the sugar and yeast and let it set for 10 min. Then stirred in the flour and spices. I got a great rise and had no troubles. I rated it only a 3 because the flavor seemed lacking. The cheese was there but everything else just seems lost. I will try an increase in the next batch, but theer will be a next batch.

Cowboy Jack's Beer Bread
It was ok, a bit too sweet for me, and a bit too dense. Mine was swimming in butter but when I pulled it from the oven I "drained it". Wil try it again as it is a good base but needs some tweaking in my opinion.

Quinoa with Carrots and Raisins
Very good, I'm on weight watchers so I modified the recipe some to start. I cut out the olive oil completely! Sprayed my pan with some olive oil spray and fried the veggies, poured the dry quinoa on top and sprayed it then stirred, then added the juice/water. I had no walnuts so i toasted pecans instead, they were perfect! I used half the amount of raisins and still though they were a bit much. Next time I will cut back some more and add extra spice 1Tbsp was not enough for us. All in all, excellent!
