About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I usually end up cooking comfort foods for my family of boys. Our favorite dessert is"Just like slice and bake sugar cookies". My family loves them while I prefer chocolate almond biscotti. Now I have to cook GF for one son so I'm experimenting even more!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sons always beg for my homemade macaroni and cheese. As they've grown older Ive had to double my recipe!!
My cooking triumphs
my cheesecakes! Seedless Blackberry Jam!
My cooking tragedies
I always seem to burn one batch of cookies each time I bake. I seem to have more flops with my pressure cooker than with any other cooking item. I can't seem to gage the heat of my burner, and most everything burns at the bottom

Bread Machine Pizza Dough
This recipe was outstanding! Really didn't think I could make it that good! Tasted like deep dish, but light and fluffy too! I tried to make it thin crust, but let it rise too long before baking, but it was scrumptious. I did add italian seasoning and garlic to the dough and pre- cooked it five min as was suggested. IS now our fav! Thanks Kim!!

Traditional Gyro Meat
I tried this recipe with my son while he was home from college. He'd become an aficionado of gyros and was looking for a way to make the meat himself. We agree with others that cooling the loaf, slicing it thinly, and pan frying it brings out the true taste we wanted. My hubby couldn't tell they weren't real! Thank you The Dread Pirate Paramour!

Toasted Pumpkin Seeds with Sugar and Spice
My whole family loved this recipe, the only reason I'm rating it a "4" is because I firstly cooked the sugar too long and nearly burned the batch! The second time I watched more carefully and pulled the syrup off the stove as soon as was melted as recommended. The two batches tasted very different! The burned one was more like brittle!
