About this Cook
Have lived in Scotland for 10 years
My favorite things to cook
Breads and Baking. And all things fattening. LOL
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was raised near Galveston Bay so seafood was a mainstay in our diet. My mother made a mean Crab Gumbo. My grandfather was Italian and I will always remember his homemade Spagetti. Oddly enough, the secret ingredient was cloves. Believe me, it was THE BEST.
My cooking triumphs
My sister ruined a batch of yeast rolls by overcooking them. I turned them in crumbs and made pumpkin bread and butter pudding out of them. Fantastic.
My cooking tragedies
I wrecked a cheescake. In anger, I stirred the pie into a mushy mess. After I calmed down I pulled out a fluted bowl and alternately layered the mush with fresh strawberries and whipped cream. End result? A Fabulous crowd pleasing parfait

Cornbread II
This cornbread is great. I love the addition of instant potatoes. Never thought of that before. I wanted a cornbread that wasn't sweet and this one fit the bill. The only change I made was I forgot to buy baking powder. Oops. But I had some self-rising flour. I was skeptical, but IT WORKED. I just needed to make a pan of cornbread to use for my Thanksgiving dressing. This one was perfect.

Pecan Pie VII
There is no karo syrup where I live. I'm from Texas but have lived in Scotland for 10 years. There is no Thanksgiving here either but there IS in my house. I love pecan pie but never have it anymore. This year I just wanted to be traditional so I searched until I found this recipe. It's fantastic. You've just gotta try it. I never knew you could make a pecan pie without corn syrup. But YOU CAN and it's better than I ever imagined. The only thing I did different is I accidentally bought dark brown sugar so I just used 3/4 dark and 1/4 white to tone it down a bit. Worked a treat.

Sweet Potato Pie I
There is no canned pumpkin where I live. I'm from Texas but have lived in Scotland for 10 years. There is no Thanksgiving here either but there IS in my house. I love pumpkin pie but never have it anymore. This year I just wanted to be traditional so I searched until I found this recipe. It's fantastic. You've just gotta try it. I made the changes advised by a previous review. Condensed milk and half brown half white sugar. YUM YUM!!! Better than pumpkin pie. No more homesickness for me.
