About this Cook
I just remarried in June 2006 to a wonderful man. I have a teenaged daughter and two fabulous puppies.
My favorite things to cook
I'm a baker all the way. If I could make a decent living baking, that would be my dream job. Alas, I live in a smallish midwestern town...
My cooking triumphs
Cookies, cookies, cookies
My cooking tragedies
My first Christmas dinner in my own home when I was 22... I made Broccoli Casserole that was largely made up of broccoli, rice, and cheese. I forgot the rice, so it was more like Broccoli Soup. I also made a turkey that day. Not only did I leave the various parts in the turkey but I also misread the package and left the turkey in the oven for a ridiculously long time. It didn't burn, but I made some fine turkey jerky!!! Thank God the pies were good.

Butter Flaky Pie Crust
I finally can make a home made pie crust. I don't know why this recipe clicked for me, but it wasn't painful to make! Thank you

Banana Banana Bread
I and my family really liked this recipe. I added vanilla and cinnamon in the batter for flavor and sprinkled the loaf with cinnamon sugar when it came out of the oven. Otherwise followed the recipe as written. I'm not sure why it turned out so dark, maybe the brown sugar... but I'll make it again for sure.
