About this Cook
I am new to cakes and thought I would try it out and much to my surprise I really like it! So now I am all about it. I posted my first cake on here so be gentle...It was my first attempt!
My favorite things to cook
I like grilling...and I like to bake (now) Not so much when I was a younger gal =)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mashed potatoes...Always add a brick of cream cheese and parsley and I can not go wrong. Also taught my kids to make pasties from da UP!
My cooking triumphs
I managed to feed 7 kids over my lifetime so I must be getting better at it. Now if I can stop cooking for an army and learn to cook in moderation I will be happier!
My cooking tragedies
I have burned water...I admit that I am a little intimidated by cooking but once I put my fears aside I take more chances.

Cornish Finnish Michigan Pasties
Excellent recipe. Our version does not call for carrots or MSG (We use salt). My grandmother made these and told me to put a little baking powder in the dough to make it "soft". She never measured it so I just added what I thought was right and they were perfect. I cheated and used southern style frozen hash browns and they turned out just as well as if I peeled a bag of potatoes...only without all of the hard work.
