About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
I tried to impress the guys at hunting camp once. They were tough critics to begin with. The snow was blowing through the mountain hollows. The trees began to get coated with ice. But a roaring fire was going in the big stone fireplace of the cabin. The guys were getting loud playing cards. I worked very hard to cook up a batch of whistlepig stew. That's groundhog for those of you not from Western Pennsylvania. I slow-cooked the beast in the stew broth with vegetables. Then I added some pasta. The meat was so tender it fell off the bones unexpectedly! The pasta sucked up all my water! I ended up with some archaeological cement with the remains of this poor animal. We desparately searched the phone book for a pizza joint. I take abuse to this day for this one and only thing!

Easy Pesto
Very tasty and quick. Try adding a teaspoon of fresjh lemon juice to get a real Southern Italian flavor. A few almond slices give it a really great texture, too.

Creamy Pumpkin Pie
Thanks for sharing, Paula! What a wonderful taste this pie had. Nothing like the store-bought pumpkin. My grandmother made it the same way, but she separated the egg whites and folded them into the pumpkin after whipping them into a froth. She always got a very light texture. Guaranteed to be a hit during the holidays. We've already polished off two of them.
