About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Cookies! I bake fresh cookies every week for my husbands lunch. Desserts are my specialty.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas. We all get together to make sugar cookies and then we sit around the table laughing, talking and decorating them.
My cooking triumphs
My grandmothers date filled cookies. Took a long time to master them since the recipe I had was a dab of this and a pinch of this and a handful of that. I did finally get them down and have been told they are better than grandmas.
My cooking tragedies
Pumpkin pie! My friend and I decided to surprise our husbands with pumpkin pie made from scratch. We forgot the sugar!!! They weren't horrible, but not what we expected that's for sure.

Sweet-n-Sour Kielbasa
Instead of a big dinner at Christmas, because there are sooo many of us we do appetizers! This was very good! I think when I make it again I will cut back on the red pepper flakes to please everyone's taste. The kids and the elderly thought it a bit spicy!

Cranberry Apple Sauce II
I made this for Thanksgiving Dinner and it was a hit. I should have doubled the recipe because I had nothing leftover. I have a large family but all very picky and have been trying for years to find a cranberry sauce that would please them all and this is it. It will be a family recipe from now on.
