About this Cook
I enjoy spending time with my children & grandchildren, especially cooking/baking for them. I like to travel, collect cookbooks & Antique Fireking dishes/bakeware, surf the internet for that special recipe.
My favorite things to cook
Enjoy cooking or baking almost anything, from soup to dessert... Trying desperately to cook & bake healthy & nutritiously as often as I can....
My favorite family cooking traditions
Keeping cooking wholesome, flavorful, & share with whoever comes to visit....Some favorites-Canning, pickling, making bannock with homemade oxtail soup, only some of many favorites....

Banana Cake VI
Fantastic...nice moist texture, just right Banana flavour. Like many other cooks here, I was hesitant at first reading the unusual baking and cooling instructions. I'm glad I took the chance & made the recipe.... Like others I had to add about 15-20 min to the cooking time. (and I had just had my oven temp checked for accuracy about a week ago, so I know my oven temp is correct) But thanks to Allrecipes I had reviews to read prior to baking the cake, so I expected I'd have to adjust the time. The Cream Cheese Frosting is to die-for too... This will be the only Banana Cake recipe in my arsenal of recipes from this day forward...Thx Cindy Carnes & Allrecipes.....

Scottish Shepherd's Pie
Awesome quick meal using leftovers. Sprinkled the cheddar cheese on after cooked for 20 minutes, returned to oven approx 5 minutes at 350 F just to melt the cheese...definitely will make again...
