About this Cook
I love to make things.
My favorite things to cook
Dessert! Chocolate! Stir-fries. In that order.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to make pumpkin seeds at Halloween with my boys. Growing up, my Mom would make "eggs in a Frame", and I loved when Dad stopped at the donut store (usually Dawn Donuts) after working the midnight shift at the plant. Grandma and I loved making fudge together, and she taught me to use a cast iron skillet for everything - especially cornbread! My French Canadian Grandma would make special items for Holidays; mincemeat pies and for my polish Grandpa we had to get kielbasa from Hamtramk, served with sauerkraut of course! I always looked forward to the elaborate relish tray too.
My cooking triumphs
When ever I make something BOTH of my boys like!

Raspberry Vinaigrette Dressing
Yum! Tart and sweet. Good over spinach salad with onions, raspberries, strawberries and feta.

Blueberry Lemon Bread
Delicious! Lemony goodness and blueberry flavors that work so well together. I used confectioners sugar and added lemon zest to the glaze. My blueberries didn't sink to the bottom. I used a glass pan, it may be the reason why it was done sooner than the time allowed.

Smokin' Scovilles Turkey Chili
Vegetarian Version: Used a meat sub, though would be fine without this, just add more of your bean of choice. For the non-"sadistic spicy food lover" version: halve the red pepper flakes and chili powder, omit the habanero/jalapeno and hot pepper. It was still very spicy to me. Didn't have liquid smoke, used "Gravy Master" Quite a lot of flavor!
