About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Gosh! There are so many, I'm not sure where to begin. I try not to fry things when I can bake them, like pork chops, though I love a nice tender steak rubbed with the Spade L Ranch seasoning. Breads, desserts, I like most vegetables when they're still a little crispy and not limp. I recently bought an old cookie book, and I've been having a great time trying out the different recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Definitely when the family gathers together for holiday meals. One of my sister-in-laws has the best recipe for stuffing! We do 2 crockpots of it, and my brother usually deep fries a turkey. There's nothing better than when the kitchen is full of women cooking, the men are watching the kids or outside, and then we all sit down and enjoy.
My cooking tragedies
About the only thing I still haven't mastered in basics is how to make a light and fluffy Hawaiian Sweet bread. My mom does the best I've ever tasted, but I still tend to stir it too much before baking...

Unbelievable Rolls
This is a wonderful recipe! I used half white and half wheat flour, added some gluten, and made Navajo tacos. They fried up very nice and was perfect for dinner.

Chocolate Cream Pudding
I'm in love with this pudding, and I'm not a pudding person - I abhore the commercial 'instant' puddings. Like other reviews, I add a bit more chocolate than called for, for the chocolate to stay the dominant flavor. I just made a double batch, and I used half milk and half of half-n-half. I am a chocolate snob, and always use the best chocolate. I recommend using Guittard chocolate, in my opinion it's better than Ghirardelli, unless a local store carries the high-end single origin bean chocolate. For Utahns, you can't get better than Amano Chocolates, an Orem-based company. When it comes time to tempering the eggs, I learned to have another person pour a thin stream while I whisk madly. Slowly add more until you have about a cup of mixture in the bowl, and then whisk constantly again when adding the tempered eggs back into the pan. Mimi, you have my everlasting love for introducing me to the delights of homemade pudding.

Old Virginia Wassail Cider
This is a fabulous recipe! Even my sister, who isn't very fond of wassail, enjoyed this recipe. And it's just as delicious cold, and with a touch of lemon-lime soda.
