About this Cook
I love to read, cook, and watch old cartoons.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, especially things that take a lot of time and effort. I am also a big fan of boxed mixes-those you have to try really hard to mess up.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The Family cherry pie- my future in laws have passed the recipe down for several generations and I have mastered it.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering pie crust- especially when the bottom crust needs to be thick and the top needs to be paper thin.
My cooking tragedies
Fried chicken. I will not attempt that one again.

Quick Yeast Rolls
Just follow the recipe! Not all bread is kneaded- include this in that category. Think of this recipe as if you are making a batter, it will be sticky and gloopy, but it will turn out wonderfully- just follow the recipe!! These are great for pulled pork sandwiches- I double this recipe when I make them.

Roasted Soda Can Chicken
This is such a versatile recipe in that you can use multiple liquids to enhance the flavor. I have used various sodas, beer, fruit juices, and broths. The trick is the can- it is the stand. So if you want a more savory chicken use beers, for a sweeter chicken use juices and citrus sodas (mountain dew works well) and for less complex though flavorful chicken use broths. The super tiny juice cans work great for Cornish Hens.

Dark Chocolate Bacon Cupcakes
Wonderful Recipe! Very easy to prepare, and the end product is absolutely delicious! Watch your cupcakes- mine only took 15 minutes to bake, any longer and the cakes would have been crumbly and dry. As for the batter being hard to work with, be prepared, it is a thin batter, but a measuring cup with a spout works well to dish it out. I added mini chocolate chips to my cakes (if you add chips be sure to spray the paper liners with a bit of cooking spray), and I sprinkled a little sea salt on top of the frosting in addition to the bacon. Be sure to really cook the bacon, you want it crispy. And when you chop it, think Bac'os, really small. I know I had a lot of input, but most of what I came up with were from suggestions from other reviewers. Like another reviewer I also used the creamy chocolate frosting recipe, and it pairs perfectly with these cupcakes.
