About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to find ways to "do it myself" with less cost and higher quality than a commercial product or convenience food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Stove top popcorn popped to perfection, with real butter, parmesean cheese, nutritional yeast, and a "natural" salt. Mom used to make a giant batch and allow us to drink soda pop for "Friday Night at the Movies" in the '60s when we were kids.
My cooking triumphs
I loved making a green salsa with home grown tomatillos, fresh roasted hatch chilies, cilantro and lime. My new dog and every dog I've met likes my crunchy liver treats.
My cooking tragedies
I am going to try making some turkey pot pies from scratch and then freezing them. I found the perfect size foil pans but now I need to learn to make pie crust.

Pie Crust IV
I tried this for my first time at pie crust. It worked! I mixed half shortening and half butter, creaming it together then freezing it. Then when I am ready I grate the frozen shortening/butter into the flour mixture, to make sure my dough is not over-worked.
