About this Cook
I have been married almost 40 years ( to the same man) and love to cook for him and our friends. Learned to cook from my Mom, and by trial and ERROR. My husband was in the military for 20+ years, and have been quite a few places, one of my favorites was Turkey.
My favorite things to cook
Love to cook southern food, Chicken fried steak etc, but do not do it but once a month or so, trying to stay healthy! Love to make vegetarian dishes, and am still learning about them, also just became familiar with Bulgar and love it. My slow cooker is my favorite tool.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Family traditions are different kinds of christmas cookies, and REAL New York Cheesecake ( NO GRAHAM CRACKER CRUSTS PLEASE)
My cooking triumphs

My cooking tragedies

Grandma VanDoren's White Bread
Well, I have never made bread with oil before, and was really skeptical about using it. No more skepticism, it does work. This bread has great texture, and wonderful homemade taste. Made three loaves this AM, the dough raised wonderfully, but with 3 TBSP yeast you would expect that. Will use this recipe as my go to from now on. Thanks for sharing such a great one.

Buttermilk Honey Bread
Good recipe for anyone who likes to bake bread. Only used 6 cups flour, also used buttermilk powder with water, and was fine. The baking time stated 30 min, I took it out then, but when I cut it, it was a bit gooey in the center of one loaf, so next time I will bake 35 min or so. Great taste and texture. Will surely make again.

Caramelized Baked Chicken
Usually I make recipes exactly as stated before reviewing, but this is the exception. Tasted the sauce before pouring over the chicken, and it was SOOOO salty from the soy sauce, that I needed to do something, because salt will not come out. I added some vinegar, I had balsamic on hand, and then some lemon juice,also we like spicy foods, so added cayenne pepper also. It was much better taste then. Baked for 20 min then turned up the heat to 450 and returned to oven to crisp up the skin, about 15 min till done. Was really a wonderful tasting dish, and VERY moist. Will make this many more times.
