About this Cook
Mom of 2 boys. They are very picky and so is their Dad. I am always looking for new twists on traditional meals. Hubby calls me the 'food police' because I hate to waste food and I am always looking for reviews from my family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook anything! I especially love to bake breads, make noodles, and I love to mix different recipes together to find the right combination.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am the 'queen' of Chicken and Noodles in my family. I make awesome dinner rolls and anything that is 'comfort' food.
My cooking triumphs
I worked for years to master my bread and noodle recipes. I finally have the approval of all of my family and my 84 year old neighbor begs for my noodles, bread, and german potato salad. The bad part is that now that I have mastered these..they are my job to make.
My cooking tragedies
I once poured a double batch of dried noodles into a boiling pot of broth and they disintegrated. It was like an atom bomb of flour. Still not sure how that happened!

Aunt Mary's Chocolate Cake
Wonderful!! I kept asking my mom for My Grandma Mary K's chocolate sheet cake recipe. She couldn't find it so I used this one. It was fabulous! It tasted just like I remembered. It also does taste like a hostess cupcake and if I can find a good filling recipe I will make cupcakes out of it with cream filling. Yum!! I did not have chocolate squares so I used 6 T. cocoa + 2 T butter. I frosted it with Chocolate Frosting III from this site. *Note: Mom found grandma's recipe and the only difference was that she added another 1/2 c. of shortening which I do no think is necessary. This recipe is terrific!! Thanks!

Sugar Cream Pie I
OMGosh!! Fabulous!! I am also from IN and have been looking for a great Sugar Cream Pie recipe like Mrs. Wick's and my Grandmother's. This is it!! I followed the filling recipe exactly. Like one person said before, you have to keep stirring over med/high heat and wait for the "magic" where the butter floating on the top disappears and all of a sudden you have pudding and the mixture thickens. Stir a couple of minutes longer, reducing your heat just a bit. Stir in your vanilla and voila! I added 1 1/2 drops of yellow food coloring after the vanilla for color. Also I made my own pre-baked crust with 1 1/4 c flour, 1/4 t. salt, 1/2 c. butter, 1 t. sugar, & 4 t. water. It was so flaky and the filling was so good! The only thing I thought of was that this recipe screams for Chocolate Frosting III drizzled over the top after it is fairly cool! Then it would taste just like an eclair!! Yummy!! Thanks!

Calzone
Oh My Gosh! This was the bomb at our house. I made the dough and fixings and everyone filled their own to bake. I cut the dough into 6x6" pieces and formed them like "hot pockets". Still munching on leftovers (it makes alot for four) 3 days later! My husband and I fought over the last 1/2. I made the dough ahead & folded it in thirds and refridgerated it while fixing the rest. Pulled it out, puched it down, rolled to final size, sliced, filled, sealed and baked as directed. I also added 1 xtra Tbls. sugar and a 2 second count of olive oil to the dough, and did not do this in a bread machine. Very versatile dough! Outstanding! Easy! Thanks for submitting this recipe!*Also, baking on parchment paper keeps it from sticking, over browning, and makes clean up easy.
