About this Cook
I enjoy exchanging recipes and talking about cooking with others who share the passion. I don't get a chance to cook much, but when I do, it turns out fairly well. I don't eat any meat, but that doesn't hesitate me from cooking it for others!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking appetizers, Italian food and dishes for parties or special occasions.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make sourdough from scratch(without a bread machine) didn't turn out too well....

Chocolate Dipping Sauce
All I can say is MMMMMM! This dipping sauce is a lot like chocolate pudding. I used fat free evaporated milk and added more as needed. Without the extra milk, it has a dark chocolate taste which is much too bitter for me. I served this with strawberries, bananas, angel food cake and graham crackers. One guy said "Now this is classy!" A must for any chocoholic.

Hot Spiked Cider
I tried this for Thanksgiving 2006. I made it in the slow cooker while everyone was out of the house. I used Tazo brand Sweet Orange Spice Tea. It was so delicious, I had at least 3 cups by the time everyone returned home. Because of the children I left out the rum. But I have no hesitation adding it next time. I bet it's even better with it!

White Berry Pie
WOW. Very good. I decided to make this for Easter and bring to the family gathering. I did make some minor changes though. I used low fat ingredients whenever possible, including the grahmn cracker crust and cream cheese. I also sliced the strawberries into rounds and layered them on top. When I was mixing it, the batter was quite stiff and hard to mix. But after chilling for a few hours I think the berry juice softend it a bit & was a bit jiggly.
