I have been roaming all over this web site since August 2009 and thought I should become a supporting member. Just looked like the thing to do. I have really enjoyed the recipes and reviews. I have found the reviews more than just a little helpful. And, now that we have found that my husband… MORE

About this Cook
I have a yen to be self sufficient or as close as I can. So, hubby and I have our own little farm in Oregon and we raise cattle, pigs, chickens and turkeys so far. We also have a dog, cat and donkey.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and try new things. I grow lots of stuff and am ready to begin having a year round garden in a greenhouse. Any meal is a pleasure especially if he likes it. I enjoy canning what I grow and catch (fish).
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have cows and milk so I have access to all the milk I can use. My grandmother used to make something we called Fried Cottage Cheese. It is a little sour and cooked very dry. It browns and takes a gallon of raw milk to make about 1/2 pound. I make Banana pudding in the extra large size for my husband as he eats it right out of the bowl. One bowl, one spoon, one man, and the dog. She will eat anything he does. I also like Cornbread dressing with chestnuts.
My cooking triumphs
I made Mozzerella cheese for the first time last month and it was so good my friend told me I should market it.Cheesecake is something I never thought I could master, but it isn't hard. Goose and duck are two things I never thought I could do, but they both passed his likes.
My cooking tragedies
I tried the fried Cottage Cheese again and it took forever to cook and almost burned. I think the milk wasn't soured enough.

I grabbed this recipe to make coleslaw for my husband never giving a thought to not having mayonnaise in it. When I put it on the table I thought he won't eat it. Well he did and enjoyed it. I will make it again.

Ham and White Bean Soup
I just made this today. Only I did change some things because I am always using the things I have on hand that I can from my products. I used pork broth (2 pints) and pepper ham hocks and 1 pint of home made salsa, and dried beans. I also added 2 tbsp. cornstarch mixed with a little cold water to thicken it. When DH likes it it has stood the ultimate test. Excellent with homemade biscuits (just because I didn't make cornbread.

The Best Chicken Fried Steak
I have to tell you, I made this when a friend butchered one of our older cows. We got a lot of cubed steak (which now I am happy about) and I had to figure something to do with it. I really enjoy a good CFS. I made this several times and every time my husband said how good it is. He made the comment that I have probably ruined him for any other. We used to order it quite often in restaurants. thank you for a GREAT RECIPE.
