About this Cook
I grew up in the South, and now am living in Central America (further South!). So I love Southern comfort food, and also enjoy Latino foods. It's fun to cook, and I share my kitchen with three girls who are picking up all my techniques. I often blog about my cooking at www.thispilgrimage.blogspot.com

Tomato Sauce
This is a good, savoury tomato sauce that is useful for many dishes! I froze the leftovers to enjoy with other meals. Will definitely use this recipe again.

Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies III
My nine-year-old made these cookies, and they are delicious! We didn't have almond extract, and so substituted vanilla, plus added some cinnamon. When she scooped the dough she packed it in, and I think that helped the cookies hold together well, instead of turning out crumbly as someone else mentioned. Very good recipe!

Chocolate Covered Cherry Cookies II
These cookies are scrumptious! Soft and chewy, and the chocolate topping is great. I liked the photo of the cookies with the topping drizzled on, but I was unable to get that effect. Too runny? Next time I might use less condensed milk, but I will definitely make this recipe again.
