About this Cook
I'm a college professor who, next to cooking, loves working with students.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking just about all recipes, but I really adore baking; it's a great stress relief for me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays are so much fun and looked forward to by the whole family. Our grown children and their spouses and children join around the table for good food and great times.

Orange-Pumpkin Poppy Seed Cake
This is a good starter recipe for me. I did make some changes for my personal and family's tastes. I used the zest from two oranges (some zest reserved for the glaze I made) and their juice in place of bottled juice. It was just the ticket to mask the cake mix taste and make this taste like a fresh, homemade, from-scratch cake. I used a bundt pan and instead of cream cheese frosting, I used a glaze of confectioner's sugar, a tad of butter, and some of the zest and juice. DELICIOUS! Definitely a keeper!

Ultimate Maple Snickerdoodles
We love snickerdoodles, so this seemed like a recipe for us to try. However, this was just okay for us, and, frankly, I think the regular snickerdoodles are better. This one is very sweet, so you might want to cut down on the sugar some. I used real maple syrup, so maybe that had something to do with it, but I really don't think we'll make these again.

Cranberry Bars
This is a wonderful cookie bar. I made it just as written; waited for them to COOL before cutting, and they were beautiful! It's one that I'll make again and again for my family and friends. Absolutely fabulous!
