About this Cook
I really enjoy cooking, baking, and trying new recipes. I love the all recipes website as it's great for always finding a good recipe when I need one. I have many, many nice cook books and prefer the ones with lots of pictures. But, I love reading all of the reviewers comments and suggestions. They are sometimes better than a picture.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and grew up in a home with extended family where both my grandmother and mother did a lot of baking from scratch and lots of time consuming cooking. My grandmother made huge loaves of bread without any kind of bread machine. It is truly an art. I follow her recipes and can make bread with the assistance of a Kitchen Aid Mixer.

Homemade Chocolate Walnut Brownies
I've had brownies on my mind for a few days and was looking for a new recipe. This is an outstanding brownie recipe. I also baked mine in a 9"x13" glass baking dish for 30 minutes. I used salted butter. The batter was really thick and I was afraid they were going to be dry. But, they were PERFECT. Best brownies ever!

Salisbury Steak with Mushrooms
Excellent recipe. I was looking for a recipe that did not use canned cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup. So, I was really happy to find this recipe. It basically uses ingredients that you probably have at home. I didn't have any bread crumbs so I used saltine crackers instead. I did not add the teaspoon of salt to the meat. I just lightly salted with a salt shaker. Otherwise, I followed the directions pretty closely. And the directions are great. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe with us. This will be my "Forever Salisbury Steak" recipe.
