About this Cook
well... to say the least I am a young and flourishing cook that may be an aspiring professional chef...maybe. Simple yet elegant cooking and entertaining is definitely in my blood
My favorite things to cook
I like to put my oven in overtime with baking cakes and cookies and roasting meats
My favorite family cooking traditions
moms traditional pot roast on weekends leg o ham on Christmas turkey dinner for thankgiving I know some people may think this is wrong but every year I bake my own birthday cakes from scratch most of the time and I enjoy it a lot
My cooking triumphs
Most recently my breaded pork roast with herded breadcrumbs potatoes and homemade apple sauce
My cooking tragedies
This is not so tragic but. . . one time I dropped a whole loaf pan of banana nut loaf batter on the oven door when I was putting the two suckers in to cook.

Maraschino Cherry Almond Cookies
@Sly the dough for this recipe is just a basic recipe I use for refrigerator cookies. If you use good quality ingredients the flavour is there. There is no need for a lot of salt. I usually use cultured butter, it has a bit more flavour than regular unsalted butter but is not always available. You can certainly use salted butter if you want. But the amount of sugar certainly makes up for the lack of salt. The dough is also more of a shortbread or pastry dough that's why there is no need for chemical leavening. Also if you dry the chopped cherries on paper towel before mixing into the dough your log should keep it's shape and easily be cut. When you do make the dough take some photos if you can. Thanks for your concern. :)

Butternut Squash Pizzas with Rosemary
This is a good basic recipe but when I made it I added a lot more to it. I'm a big fan of vegetarian pizza's so I added spinach, roasted red peppers, and sundried tomatoes and some fete cheese. Also, pizza dough is not always available so the second time I made it I used Greek style pitas without the pockets and cooked it for less time. But they are not always an option, so you could also use prebaked pizza doughs as well.
