About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE TO BAKE. WHEN THE WEATHER TURNS COLD, THAT IS MY CUE TO BEGIN MAKING THINGS WITH PUMPKIN, APPLES AND SWEET POTATOES.
My favorite family cooking traditions
MY MOM ALWAYS MADE THE MOST WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS COOKIES. I HAVE ALL HER RECIPES OF WHICH I MAKE MANY. RAISAN FILLED HAS BEEN A FAMILY FAVORITE FOR MANY YEARS.
My cooking triumphs
I BAKED AND SOLD CAKES FOR ABOUT 30 YEARS, FOLLOWING IN MY MOTHER'S FOOTSTEPS. AFTER I GOT A FULL TIME JOB, I HAD TO QUIT. IT WAS LIKE HAVING 2 FULL TIME JOBS. I WILL STILL DO AN OCCASIONAL WEDDING CAKE FOR A FAMILY MEMBER
My cooking tragedies
I HAVE A FAVORITE CARROT CAKE RECIPE. IT IS FABULOUS. IT IS A HEAVY BIG CAKE. IT HAS TO BE BAKED ABOUT 90 MINUTES IN A 10 INCH TUBE PAN. I WASN'T ON MY GAME ONE DAY AND TOOK IT OUT TOO SOON. TO SAY IT FELL, WELL IT FELL.

Seven Layer Bars
I have made this recipe for many years. My sons love it. In the early years I always had most of the crumbs left in the pan when cutting. I then discovered non-stick aluminum foil. This is the most necessary ingredient. Line your pan and bake. When cool using the foil lift out and you can cut into squares with no damage to the pan and the crumbs stick together perfectly. These bars are so delicious and are so pretty on a cookie plate.

Boiled Raisin Cake I
This recipe is saving my sanity. Having been snowed in for 2 weeks and still snowing, I was looking for something to bake. I had made this before and really liked it. I have no eggs so it is perfect. I follow the recipe exactly and it is quick, easy and most importantly, delicious. Thank you Marcie.

Old-Fashioned Chocolate Fudge
Thank you so much for this recipe. I haven't made it yet but I know it is good. This is the fudge my mom always made but I never had the recipe. I can remember it so clearly because after she put in the vanilla and butter, it was my job to beat it. I had to hold the bottom of the pan under a slow stream of cold water to help it cool down and heaven help me if I got water in it. For all of you who have ever made fudge. If it doesn't set, call it spoon fudge and serve it with spoons. I have made many batches of peanut butter spoon fudge until I found 2 recipes on this site. My spoon fudge days are over.
