About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking with my kids. I specialize in "antique" recipes handed down through the families and found in histrionic cookbooks and references.

Scottish Butter Tablet
Close but not quite perfect. I returned from Scotland 5 days ago and the 4 or 5 different makers I tasted while there varied some but all had a more caramel flavor than this...not strong but just a tiny bit. I made this exactly as written and now think I needed to cook it just a few degrees hotter, again, just a tiny bit. Next time I intend to replace half of the white sugar with either brown or turbinado trying to get that flavor. In spite of these critiques, this is tasty, easy and well worth your time and ingredients. If it doesn't set up for you, recook a few degrees hotter and try beating it more. Read some old fashioned fudge ( non marshmallow ) recipes for more hints because it is the same basic principal.

Pineapple Cream Cheese Frosting
Pineapple was a great idea BUT I halved the butter and cheese, doubled the juice and kept adding sugar and beat/whipping the mixture in an electric mixer until I had a good consistency for a cake. Still tasted nicely of pineapple and was lighter than most cream cheese frostings. Used it on a pineapple carrot cake and it was perfect. Think I will try it with other juices and matching cakes such as apple in the fall. Given how much I changed, it hardly seems fair to review but the pineapple is such a great idea, maybe a high review will get others to try the idea.

Diane's Colcannon
Don't bother making a single batch, go double or nothing! I barely got it to the table the first time I made it. I had to substitute half kale as I didn't have quite enough cabbage and we really liked it that way. Intend to increase the kale in future batches. Also have taken to adding more bacon but draining off a majority of the drippings. I mash my potatoes in a mixer so they are creamier and fluffier, then add the veggies and bacon.
