About this Cook
I like to think I'm a "good cook". i USE ALLRECIPES.COM practically on a daily basis. I cook every day, believe in made at home and stay away from processed food for a variety of reasons. Given a good recipe, my food menus turn out as specs say they will.
My favorite things to cook
chicken and beef, cookies, best ever cooking experienec was my mothers xmas cake (which was her mothers) written in 1950 by mother. Not the best baker but trying hard on a weekly basis my children are older
My favorite family cooking traditions
xmas cake (Icing was terrible in 2010) thanksgiving and xmas dinner
My cooking triumphs
my daughters 30th birthday party with over 100 guests. all apitizers and main course items were sensational. ALMOST held her wedding at home but...just got too big.
My cooking tragedies
anything call bourbon - bourbon chicken, mahongany chicken etc. just too sweet (?) but we love teryaki chicken, so go figure.

Quick Brussels and Bacon
This is the recipe that turns brussel sprout haters into believers! I have made these for years but I would use fresh brussel sprouts (and not huge ones either) and boil for 10 minutes and then fry in unsalted butter. This is for those not afraid of the extra calories. Not as healthy but I have to tell you, the butter makes them sooo smoothe and yummy. When I've had a large dinner to prepare, I would also skip the boil/steam and put them in the oven for about 40 minutes. Cover them with foil for the first half of cooking time so they don't burn.. Enjoy!

Miss Betty's Super Quick Dinner Rolls
super easy to make! make sure to use self rising flour (oops) I'm a scratch cook so dont usually have it. However, this second time making them properly, I added some sharp cheddar cheese and the consistency was perfect with soup and were great for drop in lunch folks. Next time I'll add a bit of roasted garlic too. Thanks for the recipe! a keeper.

Crustless Cranberry Pie
Since Canadian Thanksgiving, I have made this 3 times! Wow! I sprinkled with icing sugar. I wonder if it can be made with other seasonal fruits... Its a keeper.
