About this Cook
Came from a family of fantastic artistic bakers, chefs. Didn't learn much, just enjoyed when I could (was a busy kid). Didn't pick up the natural cooking nack, but enjoy the process when it works and tastes good. Not sure how it's possible to be a novice after being in the kitchen this many decades, but it's true. With a bit of effort and humor, I hope to make something of myself.
My favorite things to cook
Baking: pies, cookies, brownies
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies
My cooking triumphs
Back into cooking after raising the kids. Anything worth doing, is worth doing well. (I'm trying!)
My cooking tragedies
oh boy, too many to list and too humbling to want to remember.

Peach Pie
So easy! I did take the recommendation to sub in 1/2 brown sugar and 1/2 sugar instead of a full cup of white sugar. I turned off the oven when cooked and let 'set'. I did not do the lattice work as I only had 1/2 package of Pillsbury pie and put vanilla ice cream on top. I got a 5 out of 5 thumbs up from picky eaters. Will be a staple recipe in my arsenal. My prep time was only about 15 mins.

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
