About this Cook
I am one person split in two. Love nature & natural things, I love clothes. Always conscious of going 'green', strive to do better that way, I would secretly love to be wasteful for just 1 day. I have 2 part time businesses, electrolysis & sewing...again, 2 definate ends of the stick! I am a creative person by nature, sewing & selling my bags that my beautiful daughter & I designed (thatsmybagbaby.ca) . I love to write in my spare time too.
My favorite things to cook
baking by far...almost any kind of desert. For meals I am a lazy cook...very basic, but lots of variety. I'm lucky I am married to a man ho will eat anything I put in front of him, & too often that's no supper at all, so he'll cook for himself!
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was a teenager, back in the 70's my beloved grandmother announced that this was the time in my life that I should be getting acquainted with pastry recipes & find one that worked well with me. Well, as much as I would have loved to follow her advice, I'd weigh 100 lbs more than I do already if that were the case. Sorry Grandma, but mine would never be as good as yours anyhow!
My cooking triumphs
When I do knock myself out & actually cook a whole meal, I fancy that, this in itself is a triumph. I can hold my own in the kitchen. My mother thinks I'm a good cook, that should stand for something!
My cooking tragedies
I dropped the Christmas turkey...right out of the oven...there it lay in the middle of the kitchen floor.. in front (the worst!) of both my mom & mother-in-law. Mortified doesn't describe the scene. Mouth agape, we looked at each other, then histerically started to laugh. My savings Grace was that it fell bottom side down...who eats the bottom of a turkey anyhow?

Jen's Microwave Doggie Donuts
You can't find anything easier than this recipe, however I didn't want to microwave these. I actually made 2 different batches, one with whole wheat flour & chicken broth & the other with spelt flour & beef broth. I used 3-4 T of oats & probably & kneaded more flour in until stickiness gone. Roll out to no more than 1/4" on floured surface (lots of flour!). Then, I cut strips about 1/3" x 3" & twisted each end in opposite directions so it looks like a twisted skinny breadstick. I also used a 4" round cutter, then with a pastry cutter devided each round into 6 pie shaped pieces. Looks like little nacho chips! I baked these at 300 for 30 minutes for the chips & 45 minutes for the twists. Quinn, my lab-retriever mix loved them, but then again, she'll eat anything that isn't a rock.

Cassie's Zucchini Brownies
I like a fudgy brownie, but thought I'd try this recipe. It is a cake texture, but very moist, so it's a keeper. I whisked the eggs until frothy, used melted butter instead of vegetable oil & probably an extra 1/2 cup of zucchini (peeled) so maybe that made a difference, s it wasn't dry. Not too sweet, but I like it that way. Add chocolate icing if you want more chocolate.
