About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
Back in the days when I was a much less experienced cook, I prepared a curry dish for a church Diners' Club in my home. I purchased some new curry powder that day. Unfortunately I didn't taste the completed dish before I brought it to the table (an impt. lesson there). It was so hot it was inedible. That's when I learned something about the differences between various types of prepared curry mixes. Now I mix my own. But more important, tasting what I prepare is a basic rule in my kitchen.

Apple Cake V
Fabulous recipe...we couldn't stop eating it! I made it in two small bundt pans; put one in the freezer and kept the other one out for dessert and snacking. The recipe is perfect as is; it needs no adjusting.

Easy Homemade Pizza Dough
Has anyone tried this recipe using a pizza stone? I'm wondering about the baking instructions if a stone is used instead of a metal pan. Would love some feedback.

Best Italian Sausage Soup
Very good. We love slow cooker soups, esp. now that fall is coming on. Re the tomatoes - sometimes you just have to use your common sense. Even tho the recipe doesn't tell you to chop the tomatoes, go ahead and do it!
