About this Cook
I am retired and love baking and trying new recipes. Cooking main courses is also fun.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite recipe is Finnish Coffee bread known as Pulla.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love meat pies at Christmas. I make the coffee bread all year. It's a tradition to make it for special occasions and I have made it for fund raising events.
My cooking triumphs
I entered an apple pie contest and got 2nd place at an auction. It went for $70.
My cooking tragedies
I sprinkled my apple pie with salt thinking it was sugar. I quickly threw it out and made new ones and then won the apple pie contest as I mentioned above.

Italian Stewed Tomatoes
I tried it and made a few additions.I peeled the tomatoes then let them sit for a few hours until I got back to them. Poured off the liquid then chopped them. Not too runny at all. I found it bland so I added salt/pepper/tobasco sauce to taste to give it some umpf. I cooked it for 20 min. instead of the 10. Tastes great. Will make it again.

Rockin' Salsa
This is an amazing recipe for salsa. I used maple syrup instead of sugar. I also simmered for less than an hr. It does become a bit mushy. I used all white onions since I didn't have the others. I used all roma tomatoes. It has a "kick' to it but not too much. I used fresh garlic chopped instead of garlic powder. (6 buds) I will definitely make this again.
