About this Cook
I'm a vintage mama (1st and only child at 42). Married to my soulmate!
My favorite things to cook
I love anything I can put in the crock pot. I love to bake and adjust the ingredients as I go along.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cookies. Mom made fresh cookies every week for us kids.
My cooking triumphs
Croissants via Julia Child's recipe! It took me about 6 failed attempts to get it right, but I did it, just so I could say I did.
My cooking tragedies
While clarifying beef stock... after 8 hours of work... at the final step of straining the egg shells I drained out the soup & kept the shells - oops! Boy, was I mad at myself.

Gramma Brown's Corn Chowder
My family loved this, I followed other suggestions and used evaporated milk and left out the butter. I also added my own twists and used fresh sweet corn (4 ears) and added 2 small salmon fillets (no skin, cut into chunks), and it added a great layer of flavor.

Morning Glory Muffins I
Delicious! I made a few changes - used 3 whole eggs and deleted the oil, used 1/2 C. white sugar, and 3/4 cup dark brown, and added 2 T of chia seeds instead of wheat germ. These are dense and filling muffins! They don't rise too much in the oven because there's so many goodies in it, so I filled the muffin cups to just about full and got perfect muffin tops.

Braised Balsamic Chicken
I made this a bit simpler - I used a can of Italian style diced tomatoes (has the herbs already in it) and didn't add any extra herbs. Threw in a jar of button mushrooms, cut the balsamic back to 1/4 C, added 1 chicken broth cube (no extra water). After tasting it was a bit too sour, so I added maybe 1-2 t. of sugar and then it was sooo delicious!
