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.

Gourmet Mushroom Risotto
This was my very first attempt at making risotto and it was a smashing success. I didn't even watch the video so I can say the instructions are very well written. I made a few modifications based on what I had on hand...fresh flat-leaf parsley instead of chives and only Portobello mushrooms. Very, very delicious with steak.

Peas with Mushrooms
I probably shouldn't review this because I adjusted quantities to fit our tastes and used fresh mushrooms. Nevertheless, I did use all the ingredients and we really loved this combination.

Molasses Sugar Cookies
I followed the recipe precisely and found it a little lacking. It might've been me but I'm an experienced cookie baker so I don't think so. While the taste is good, I want a molasses cookie to taste more molasses-y and less of other spices. Also mine were flat as a pancake and I'd like mine a little more meatier...more like Archways. I'll keep looking.
