About this Cook
I worked in and managed restaurants for 25 years.Due to a car accident 2 years ago,I am now retired and in a wheelchair.I haven't stopped cooking and baking daily though.I just do it at a more leisurely pace.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking ANYTHING with butter and brown sugar.My BBQ makes me lots of friends.

Butter Cake
I bake daily.I wanted something NOT chocolate. I DID read all of the reviews before making this so I knew I had a nice firm crust to put a thick buttercream frosting onto. I served my chubby hubby a slice. He said,"It's good but it reminds me of something." As he takes another bite he thinks some more...."I know, CORNBREAD!" He will finish the cake I'm sure. There is a texture issue with this recipe though.

Pork Chops with Raspberry Sauce
I made this last night and we both really liked it.I think with pork I might like a bit of red pepper heat in this sauce.I am going to make this recipe again with chicken soon.

Neiman Marcus Chocolate Chip Cookie
The first time I made these it was exactly by the recipe.These are a great small batch recipe.Personally I can't always afford good chocolate chips and I can't stand cheap ones. I find that this batter(minus the coffee) holds up well to other add ins...So far,I've tried several different dried fruits,nuts and leftover candy all with great success.
