About this Cook
I enjoy baking - it was always easier to me than cooking! We don't always have the freshest ingredients handy where we live, so keeping things interesting and delicious is challenging.
My favorite things to cook
Anything new! I love trying out a new recipe, and I love it even more when it becomes a favorite of mine to keep!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have great memories of Christmas...growing up in Alaska, life was generally very busy day to day, so special occasions and holidays were the time to break out those recipes you had been dying to try all year!
My cooking triumphs
I don't have any extreme triumphs - I've recently mastered bread, so that makes me happy!
My cooking tragedies
Oh goodness, too many to mention! LOL I remember when I was younger I misread a recipe for chocolate chip cookies and put in 3T of baking soda instead of 3tsp. Those were some salty hard cookies!

Jan's Pretzel Dogs
My family LOVES these!! We've made them many different ways and they're all good! The pretzel around the dogs comes out great every time. I don't use a bread maker, so I knead for 10 minutes and let rise for 90. Wonderful portability too! We toss them in a bag and bring along some salad and chips for a picnic at the park. Definitely a keeper!

Big Al's K.C. Bar-B-Q Sauce
Most excellent sauce!! I didn't have celery seed, so I finely diced a T of celery and it was sooooo fantastic! I let mine simmer for a while longer to make it thicker. This recipe is SUCH a keeper, my husband thinks I hung the moon! Sweet, tangy, a touch of spice and smokey flavor...just perfect!!

Sam's Famous Carrot Cake
I made my grandmother's recipe tonight and it was nothing like what I remembered. Searching for another recipe I stumbled upon this one and couldn't believe my eyes. This is her recipe, almost word for word! I had to get the recipe card to be sure...this must be "an oldie but a goodie" from back in the day! I'm giving it a positive rating because although I didn't care for it...if it was hers, it was good!!
