About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Creating great dishes from at hand ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Grandma's "sour potatoes" (German)w/home made egg noodles; New Year's Black eyed peas, pork roast & Cabbage I converted to Pork TenderLoin & sauteed red cabbage & apples; Fried fish w/chopped onions mixed in Mayo - a unique family concoction. Grandma's hot milk cake w/coconut icing.
My cooking triumphs
Various accidental creations I can seldom repeat. My son's favorite birthday chocolate coffee cheese cake
My cooking tragedies
I tend to get inspired in the middle of prep, get distracted and burn something. I can't get gas and am stuck with electric which means I can't see or control my heat.

Chocolate Toffee Cookies II
Excellent. The kicker is the brownie like center with the crisp outside. I used pecans instead of almonds. I used the rum but am not sure it brought anything to the party and I will try kahlua next time. I doubled the recipe without any problems. This recipe will join my christmas cookie list.
