About this Cook
I have a large cookbook collection and love to try new recipes. In each book I date and rate each recipe I make.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts are my favorite but now that I'm older, I'm trying not to eat too many. I shy away from recipes with too many ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Christmas holiday I make fudge in my grandmother's heavy skillet. It always comes out perfect! I've been doing this for thirty years.
My cooking triumphs
I baked a special cake for a church auction and it sold for $60.00. WOW!
My cooking tragedies
Forty years ago my friend and I baked banana nut bread. We were suppose to put it in two pans but only used one. We still laugh about it today!

Sugar Coated Pecans
Served at three parties and everyone wanted the recipe. Third time substituted granulated Splenda for baking and it was delicious.
