About this Cook
Varied interests but getting more into cooking and looking for food to raise my energy level.
My favorite things to cook
A complete dinner for family from beginning to end.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family loves my rolls, especially when they are first out of the oven. It isn't unusual for us to eat half the batch lightly buttered immediately.
My cooking triumphs
Lately, I've been trying new recipes mostly from here. I don't follow the recipes exactly in trying to use what I have on hand, but they have turned out great.
My cooking tragedies
The first year I cooked my own turkey, I did not know it came frozen. My husband went shopping with me. He loaded it to the cart and put it in the refrigerator at home. I didn't touch it until the next day and of course it was still frozen. Thanksgiving dinner was very late.

Hot Water Pie Crust II
This is my husband's favorite pie crust. I always had trouble rolling out the pie crusts. This last time, I added an extra 1/4th cup of water, and it was perfect. It was easy to roll out all 4 pie crusts. I froze one for later use and it was just as nice as the other three.

Low-Cal Chicken
I only had enough time to marinate the chicken for 40 minutes. It was very good but probably worth a 4-star rating. I made enough for two meals. The leftovers made one of the best chicken sandwiches I have every eaten. I plan to make this dish again and next time will marinate the chicken overnight. Instead of the artificial sweetener, I sprinkled about 1/4 teaspoon of sugar on the chicken.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
I baked this bread last night. It tasted even better today. I used about 2 1/2 cups of sugar, fresh pureed pumpkin and canola oil instead of the vegetable oil. Now I'm not sure if I added the water or not. The only change I meant to make was to reduce the amount of sugar. It took longer to bake than stated. The ends and sides were hard. I cut off the ends to eat first and put the rest in the freezer. I ended up enjoying the that part of the bread as much as the rest of it. I did not read the reviews first, or I would have only used 2 cups of sugar. The reason the recipe was OK without the water was because I used fresh pumpkin puree which is more watery than canned puree.
