About this Cook
I have a wonderful husband who enjoys his food, a teenage daughter who doesn't so much. I am a small animal veterinarian, enjoy gardening and making a welcoming home for my family.
My favorite things to cook
Love baking - pies, cakes, cookies, special desserts. Not so great in the art of decorating the masterpieces, but that's ok. Comfort food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays, baking. Never liked food too much as a kid - I was a very picky stick figured child.
My cooking triumphs
My apple crumb pie and peach pies, fruit crisps, bavarian apple torte, over the top decadent chocolate cake. Soups, stews, comfort foods. My DD loves homemade mac and cheese, chicken nuggets, ham dinners and casseroles.
My cooking tragedies
The oven in our house is very strange, and someday must be replaced, so cooking a nice roast, everything is ready - but the meat takes like an extra 45 minutes. Once DH decided to finish the roast on the grill - ended up with charred outside, undercooked inside. So he went out and got a rotisserie chicken from the groc store.

Juicy Roasted Chicken
Five stars is not enough! Such wonderful flavor that we ate it like candy while we cleaned up....after dinner! I used butter, it's what I had on hand, and slid slices under the skin with celery seed and dried minced onion (again, what I had on hand), salt, pepper. Threw some diced potatoes, carrots around the chicken.

Slow Cooker, Easy Baked Potato Soup
Ok, I had posted that it was too salty because of the 2T bouillon, but my family loved it! Personally, I'd probably unsalt it a bit, but the recipe is definitely a keeper. Thank you!

Shiitake Delight
Wonderful! (and I don't care all that much for mushrooms) Used less liquid, and just 2 lg garlic cloves. We savored every bite.
