OK let's get real. This may be the land of the free and the home of the brave but nothing comes free. Occasionally someone decides to go on a rant about the Allstars program calling us names and complaining about a barrage of blogs about a single product or an onslaught of pictures of the… MORE

From The Blog:  Grandma who was never a mother
4th of July, 2013
About this Cook
A few years ago I had the opportunity to go to culinary school and loved every minute of it. So after nearly 20 years working as a paralegal, I took the plunge and changed careers. I was the baker at a "corporate dining" facility feeding the construction workers who are building a microchip manufacturing plant. I earned much less but I loved every minute of it - even though those minutes started at 5 AM! Now I am back to work as a paralegal albeit only part-time but I have also taken custody of two little angels who were in a violent and abusive home. I also volunteer by cooking at a small local hospice. I wish I could foster a new career for myself and others as a "Food Therapist". My efforts will not cure these people but I have found that I can provide enjoyment and the boost that a meal can bring. At the same time, the enjoyment I get is at least equal to their enjoyment of my efforts.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything but baking is my passion.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holiday meals with ALL the extras. Too much food for anyone to eat everything. I can't wait to pass the holiday traditions on to my granddaughters who are already Grandma's best helpers!
My cooking triumphs
I love the fact that even though our mother was a good cook and my five sisters are all good cooks, everytime I bring somethng new to family get-togethers, I am always asked to bring it again!
My cooking tragedies
My mother did a lot of cooking without recipes so I thought that's just what you did. One time when I was about 12, I was home alone and decided to make a pie. The crust was really not edible. Decades later, I still remember that pie!

Chef John's Buttermilk Biscuits
I had to add an extra splash of milk but the moisture in flour varies so that doesn't mean that everyone will need it. I have made dozens and dozens of biscuits in my life. My mother made heavenly drop biscuits so I frequently do that but I made these to top a chicken and biscuit casserole. They are beautiful! Think I've found my go-to biscuit recipe.

French Silk Chocolate Pie
I made this for our Christmas dinner and we all loved it! It is very rich as French silk pie should be and this one provides plenty of filling so you should get quite a few pieces from one pie. I used a chocolate crust because I knew my little ones would like that and they did. Thanks Betty Cooper, your French Silk Pie will be on another one of our holiday tables!

Eileen's Spicy Gingerbread Men
I made these today with my ten year old for a girls scout bake sale tomorrow. What a yummy recipe! Don't be discouraged by the negative reviews referring to sticky dough. This is a dream dough and I believe those reviews were transferred to this recipe when a different recipe was removed from the site. Easy to work with and delicious.
