About this Cook
I worked for years as a writer, editor, commercial designer, etc. One day I decided to run off and open a donut shop, and that's just what I did: http://www.thedonutwhole.com
My favorite things to cook
Baked goods like breads, cakes, cookies, pecan pies, etc. Breakfast, especially omelettes...I never stop learning how to improve my omelettes. Fattening things. Grilled meats. Tasty stuff.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother is my culinary touchstone. She's an old Okie from the Dust Bowl days and knows her way around a kitchen. Her recipe for "cowboy cookies" should be protected in the National Archives.
My cooking triumphs
The Texas sheet cake I made last night would make Jesus weep. , it's good. My rollos pollos with homemade salsa are pretty awesome, too.
My cooking tragedies
I once made gravy so thick and sticky that I had to throw away the bowl AND the spoon.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread
Wow...this came out PERFECT. The only thing I did different was to add a half-cup of vital wheat gluten along with the bread flour in the first step. Everything else, I did verbatim from the recipe. Soft, delicious, wonderful bread! Oh, and as some other reviewers pointed out, this recipe makes only TWO loaves of bread in standard loaf pans.

Pecan Chewies
Came out perfect the first time. Soft and gooey while still warm, then deliciously chewy the next day. I didn't have self-rising flour so I added baking powder and salt (the standard cheat). Excellent recipe; will definitely make again SOON!
