About this Cook
Love learning new techinques that change texture and flavors.
My favorite things to cook
Steak marniated in my Ginger/Soy marniade.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My father and mother are both exceptional cooks. My Grandfather was a chef at a hotel in Battle Creek in the 1920's. My mother is from Tennessee and brought all the wonderful foods with her when she came to Michigan in the 40's.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook healty but with great flavors and textures. Still learning as we all are.
My cooking tragedies
Anyone who cooks alot will have these. The biggest joke was the lovely pumpkin pies I made for the holidays. They came out lovely, like a picture in a magazine. I had to tase one and that is when I found out I had forgotten the sugar. They were a bit on the tart side. We all laughed and I made some new ones but still had a slice of the sugarless ones. I now use alot less sugar in mine as I like the pumpkin taste.

Easy Homemade Pie Crust
Made 4 pies and loved the easy way to combine the butter and flour in the food processor. Video helped me to know when to quit blending. Rolled out easily and was super easy to work the dough.

Eggless Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies
Like alot of others I was out of eggs and needed a quick cookie for a 4-H meeting. I used this recipe and was really quite delish. I made half regular and then added some white choc chips to the other half. Both were good and slighly soft in the center. Nice

Best Brownies
Made for my husband, he said they were really good, very chocolately and texture was just right. Need to have a glass of milk to make them perfect.

Something about the grill's heat brings out the best flavor in the simplest chicken recipe.
