About this Cook
My hubby and I have been married so long that we've stopped counting the years. Between us we have 6 grown children and 9 grandchildren. One of our granddaughters has lived with us since she was an infant. Cooking to suit her and two senior citizens proves to be a challenge at times.
My favorite things to cook
My most favorite is baking..cookies, breads, cakes. I'm a wonderful baker but don't do it as often as I would like..fighting the calories ya know. I fulfill my unrequited baking desires by making cookie trays every holiday to give away to friends and family. Every birth, death, death, promotion, new car, new house, new pet, new shirt, bumped toe (get the idea?) is an occasion to make a cake for someone.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Many of my recipes were learned at my grandma's side. She was always the cook in the family. When we lost her, I took over the cooking for holidays. Hopefully one of my grandchildren will learn a few recipies and have some fond memories when I'm no longer here.
My cooking triumphs
I condsider anything that turns out yummy a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
So many over the years that I can't even remember them all. I think my first bowl of potato salad was the one that sticks in my mind the most tho. I wanted to make mustard potato salad like my Mom makes so that's what I put in it...MUSTARD, potatoes and onion. I'd have to say it was a bit too umm..mustardy to eat. Thankfully, I've learned a bit since then.

Buttermilk Bread II
I'm always looking for recipes to use up buttermilk left from making butter. This turned out excellent! I used butter instead of margarine and being a lazy cook, I dumped all the ingredients into my mixer bowl and used the dough hooks for 8 minutes. Let it rise and made hamburger buns out of it. Let the formed buns rise for another 30 minutes, popped them in the oven for 12 minutes or so and YUM!! They rose nice and tall with a soft texture and were delicious. Thanks for the recipe, it'll be one of my keepers.

Oklahoma Nut Candy
My grandma made this candy every Christmas. Unfortunatly I never got the recipe from her so my children missed this treat while growing up. My grandchildren will be introduced to it this year with stories about my grandma and growing up in Oklahoma. I'm so happy to find this recipe, thank you!! Now I've just got to resist the temptation to gobble it all up before Christmas.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
These are indeed excellent cookies. Without the cloves, they're the same cookies my grandma made for me off the back off the Quaker Oats can. These are the same cookies I've made for my children and grandchildren but we like to use allspice and all butter. The best oatmeal cookie recipe you'll ever find.
