About this Cook
I love to try new recipes. As a beginner cook, I've discovered some basic rules: 1) Find a good recipe. 2) Follow the recipe. 3) Don't burn it. 4) If it still doesn't turn out, refer to steps 1, 2, and 3. Thanks to Allrecipes with reviewers comments, I feel like I can be successful just about every time I cook.
My favorite things to cook
crock pot cooking, breads, and cooking from scratch (as opposed to cooking from cans and boxes.)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving day pie--everyone brings a pie, plus another in case someone else forgot to bring one.
My cooking triumphs
Crock pot--wahoo!!
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make food taste good without butter, shortening, sour cream, or cheese.

Cherry Crunch
So simple, so delicious! I do not believe this recipe needed any amendments, but I was trying to find a way to use up my fresh bing cherries and frozen blackberries. I made my own cherry filling using a pie filling recipe also found on allrecipies, substituting Bing cherries and extracted blackberry juice for tart cherries. Also, I doubled the recipe and put it in a 9x13 pan. I substituted 1/2 butter for 1/2 canola oil and added extra cherry filling. I liked the layered look, so I divided about 2/3 of the crunch, and, following another reviewer's recommendation, I pressed it into the bottom of the pan firmly before adding cherry filling. I like coconut, so I mixed in a 1/2 cup for the top layer and crumbled it on. After baking, I glazed a bit of powdered sugar almond extract frosting over the top, mostly for appearance. Although my alterations concluded in very little crunch, the end result was fantastic! Sweet and crumbly soft. I didn't even have to eat it with ice cream. This dessert stands on its own! My husband swore this was one of the best desserts I have ever made. Will definitely make again.

Beth's Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
It's a pretty basic oatmeal cookie, but not super great. After following the recipe just as it says, I'm a bit let down. It's just a normal oatmeal raisin cookie.
