About this Cook
I love to cook and am always looking for something new to try. I cook by smell and taste. If I think certain herbs or seasonings will taste good in what I am cooking I add it. I do a lot of entertaining and cook for a lot of people.
My cooking triumphs
I experimented with a mixture of zucchini, yellow squash, and egg plant. Added stewed tomatoes, garlic,oregano, Italian sausage, and mozzarella cheese baked it and it was a hit. I served it with garlic bread. You can add pasta if you wish.
My cooking tragedies
My first turkey was a mess. I cooked it the way my mom used to (or so I thought). I went to cut it and it was raw in the middle. I was living with my brother at the time and we had friends over for Thanksgiving. I was only 18 at the time and thank goodness I have learned since then.

Sweet Potato Bread I
This was the best recipe. I did change it a little because I had no nutmeg so I used allspice and it was great. The second time I cooked it I added 1/2 cup raisins and 1/2 cup coconut and that was great too. I also tried it using 1 cup of pumpkin instead of sweet potato and that was a hit. If you are using a loaf pan it does take a little longer than the small pans.
