About this Cook
I have been cooking since probably elementary school. Out of a family of seven children; I am the baker. Before we all grew up and moved out; I baked all the holiday cakes. I have yet to learn how to bake pies. One of my favorite things to do is to collect recipe books as a hobby.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking and trying new recipes. Athough I bake many different kinds, pound cakes and red velvet cakes are my favorites to bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
To have each of my children pick one dish they desire to have cooked/baked to the menu, whenever we get together for the holidays.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking victory was to learn how to correctly bake a turkey.
My cooking tragedies
The most disastrous thing I can remember from my early years of cooking was half baking a turkey once for the holiday. Everything smelled great and looked so delicious on the stove. When it came to carving the turkey at suppertime, it was not thoroughly cooked. It was awful!!

Brown Sugar Banana Nut Bread I
In my opinion….it’s DELICIOUS! For me this will be the only recipe I need for brown sugar banana's quick and simple to make. I made a small sample loaf to see if I would like it in addition to making the big loaf. I ate the whole sampler loaf before I realized it. I’m a coffee drinker and this will be perfect for my morning and evening coffee time.

Sour Cream Pound Cake
I baked the pound cake using the exact ingredients as shown in the recipe. I followed all the steps as given. The cake is wonderful!! I put a lemon powdered sugar glaze on it. I will definitely be using this recipe again.
