About this Cook
You know the saying "never trust a skinny cook!" Well, I'm living proof. My food tastes great. I come from a long line of non-skinny cooks. It's a culinary tradition.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake breads, and I like to make desserts. I try to make as much from scratch as I can. I try to use only organics, if possible, and use as much of the home-canned or frozen as I can.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like to make all the family recipies that my 90 year old gramma doesn't have the temperament for anymore. Like her Chicken and Pork Dumplings, Mrs. Riggs' Dinner Rolls, and her Raisin & Nut cookies.
My cooking triumphs
I finally mastered my mum's Chocolate Ecstasy cake. I have submitted the recipe. It is THE chocolate cake to eat. I could never make that one, either. Then I moved 300 miles away, and voila! It works, now, every time.
My cooking tragedies
I can't make jello. I honestly can't make jello. In over 20 years, it has never come out right yet.

Dutch Babies II
Fast and easy, these make a wonderful addition to the weekend breakfast lineup. Tired of the usual pancake/oatmeal/egg/waffle/french toast rotation? Try this. It takes only minutes to make, tastes incredible topped with macerated fresh berries, and some homemade whipped cream! I doubled the recipe and baked it in a heavy-gague, high-sided, 10-inch round cake pan. I used bacon grease instead of oil. Soooooooo awesome!

Clark's Quiche
My children (16 and 11) H. A. T. E. quiche and said this was the greatest thing EVER. I have nothing else, really, to say. That says it all. It has earned its place of honor on the monthly rotation schedule! Thank you!

Microwave Apple Crisp
This is a very quick and easy recipe. My 6 year old daughter and I whipped this together in less than 15 minutes. We used July apples, and they were quite tart-- the perfect foil for the sweet cinnamon topping! We'll be making THIS one more often!
