Simple AND Simply Delicious
Perfect for Easter
About this Cook
I've been cooking most of my life. With six kids, my single mom had enough to do without having to look after ALL of our meals. But, in the past 20 years I've have learned to love cooking for the pure pleasure of seeing others sample and savor my work.
My favorite things to cook
CHEESECAKE! Interesting (but satisfactory for people from 8-80) Sunday dinners (including a different dessert as often as possible).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Summer BBQs Fresh lobster and freshly-dug clams on the beach in PEI Mom's deep-fried cake donuts
My cooking triumphs
My first chocolate-fudge cheesecake (about 20 years ago)- based on "Dark Chocolate Cheesecake" from The Joy of Cheese Cake by Dana Bovbjerg & Jeremy Iggers (Barrons, 1980)
My cooking tragedies
Regularly - but I can usually find a "work-around".

It Won't Last Cake
Excellent everytime! I use 1 cup unsweetened applesauce and only 1/3 cup oil, and I substitute sweetened dried cranberries for the cherries.

Romanian Apple Cake
This is the ugliest cake - going into the oven - but, when it is done - WOW! I've made this many times and find peeled/cored Granny Smith apples work best. My Romanian friends say, "savuros" (sp?) Try lightly sprinkling it with cinnamon-sugar before baking. Check out the picture I took the first time I made this cake - its only gotten better. Petrecere frumoasa!
