About this Cook
Cooking doesn't come naturally to me. I enjoy it, but sometimes it's alot of work! When the results are a success, then it's all worth it!
My favorite things to cook
I love anything sweet, so I love to bake desserts. Cakes always seem to do best for me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother made the best ever dressing and also potato salad. I think I've come close to making her proud! Holidays were always important to my family. My mother would always set the most beautiful table for the occasion.
My cooking triumphs
I guess when I first made homemade chicken and dumplings and they were great. Making my mother's cornbread was exciting too!
My cooking tragedies
There's a lot of these. I made a crumb cake the other day and had just put it in the oven when I noticed that I had forgotten to put the egg and baking powder in it! I had to scrape the topping off, and salvage the batter. It turned out good though! Another famous boo boo happened the other night when I made chocolate cookies using bittersweet chocolate squares instead of semi-sweet. Talk about pucker power! YUK!

Grandma's Doughnuts
My mother showed me how to make these when I was a little girl....she would make a glaze of confectioners sugar and evap. milk...really good hot and with a cold glass of milk! note...even the cheapest brand of canned biscuits will work....I don't cut holes..I just pull a hole in the middle by stretching the dough a little..maybe not as pretty but still looks like a doughnut!

Peanut Butter Pie VIII
This was a great peanut butter pie! Very rich... I wasn't crazy about my store bought crust though. It would have been even better with a better crust.
