About this Cook
I'm a widow and cook for myself and a relative who is a kidney patient.
My favorite things to cook
Christmas cookies because my mom always made a big deal out of making them with us kids (and then hiding them from us so there'd be some left for Christmas day). I also enjoy making and eating comfort foods...soups, stews, bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Big turkey-with-all-the-trimmings holiday meals.
My cooking triumphs
I learned to "bake" cakes over campfires on backpacking trips.
My cooking tragedies
I am incapable of cooking either butter beans OR oatmeal without making a boilover mess. And I don't have any interest whatsoever in making my own pie dough or homemade biscuits.

Amazing Lemon Scones
This was my first attempt at scones of any type. I followed the recipe except I added poppyseeds. I was expecting a fairly dense breakfast cake but they were not dense. They had a nice, thin crispy crust and very tender inside. In fact, they rose so much they kind of squooshed together while baking...no problem cutting them apart. I had to bake longer because they were squooshed. Next time I'll either use a larger sheet or two of my smaller Airbakes. I'll also halve the frosting and put as much juice and zest as I have. They were excellent the second day. Also used parchment.

Homemade Hamburger Buns
Absolutely perfect and easy peasy. Beautiful crumble. I used less sugar than called for and made 8 buns. Held up nicely to our black and blue Bubbaburgers.
