Nettie and I
About this Cook
I love to garden and can. This year I am going to can tiny sweet pickles, and tiny bread and butter pickles. I collect old cookbooks, and fruit cake recipes!
My favorite things to cook
I excell at throwing things in a pot. Soups and stews are my best! I love my slow cooker, because of the flavors and tenderness.
My cooking tragedies
My jams and jellies have been less than stellar. My Mother let me know that. This year will be better I hope.

Caribbean Zucchini Bread
This recipe is perfect! I can't bake. I admit it, but this recipe makes me look skilled. I have made it three times and each time it was perfect! Not only is the taste superb, but no matter what I do to it, it still is amazing. I have added raisins instead of coconut, and use pecans instead of walnuts. I will also add a bit of dried cranberry. Because I am not a baker, I never change the basic recipe, but why would I? It's perfect! Oh, It freezes well too.

Cop Cobbler
This was great and so easy! I took it to a carry in and everyone loved it! I increased the peaches by 1/3rd because it didn't have enough fruit for me. I must say don't use krispie creme donuts I thought it would make it over the top. It did, but was almost too sweet!

Italian Restaurant-Style Salad Dressing I
I think this is the best recipe yet! Sort of sweet, slightly sour, very good!
