About this Cook
I am a retired bank officer. Love to bake and cook in that order. Mom to a daughter who is in college. When others enjoy my baking/cooking, it makes my day. Still trying to hone my culinary skills.
My favorite things to cook
Things baked and cooking of dinners now and then.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cakes, breads, buns and pies plus some Asian savory and sweet dishes. For baking, I usually follow American recipes as I find these are very often fuss-free, simple and easy in view of my lack of experience. I hope to try the more sophisticated recipes later on but till then, I am happy to plod along and slowly upgrade my knowledge thru Allrecipes' website and with help from its members who have been most helpful to every question of mine. 3 Cheers for Allrecipes and its members!
My cooking triumphs
Have had several. Hope to have more!

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
Tried this recipe last nite. The taste was Awesome. Had reduced sugars (used part white and part brown) to about half of what was stated and used mini choc chips to further reduce some sweetness. Found that baking 12 mins in my oven produced soft cookies whist baking at 15 mins gave hardier edges. I think I will bake a little longer next time. My cookies however did not have the cracked effect "Boo hoo!" despite adding the baking soda and hot water and the cream of tartar as was kindly suggested by one top reviewer. I will certainly make these cookies again. I am giving this 5 stars even though I had reduced the sugar based on my own preference only. Thanks Dora for sharing!

Best Ever Banana Bread
Simply awesome. I only used 90g brown sugar and 30g white sugar as the bananas themselves are already sweet. I baked one with soya milk for my sis who is vegan and she gave the thumbs up. Gadzillion Thanks Rose for a most delightful banana bread recipe. This will be my Go-To recipe henceforth for banana breads. YUM!

Grandma Johnson's Scones
Have done this thrice. Simply gorgeous. My friends and family said they were "divine" and "super delicious". I have tried with raisins and mixed dried fruits (the kind you use for fruit cakes) and these came out very tasty. Gadzillion thanks!!!
