Turkey and Hash Brown Casserole
About this Cook
I have many interests,reading, woodworking,photography,and of course cooking. I consider myself a good cook, not much I won't attempt. I enjoy baking most of all.
My favorite things to cook
Bread,cakes and pies. I enjoy a good soup when the weather turns cool. Chicken and Dumplings among my favorite.
My cooking triumphs
Cooking a whole Thanksgiving dinner by myself and having everything ready at the precise time, not that easy.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried Beef Wellington for a few friends, it turned out terrible, the pastry was done to perfection, however the beef was little better than raw. The KFC that night was very good.

Jim's Apple Raisin Pound Cake with Praline Glaze
I made this cake with a few revisions, it is excellent. I used two cups chunky apple sauce and added 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. Also added 1/2 cup extra flour, to make up for added moisture of applesauce. When I made the glaze I added 1/4 cup Brandy instead of vanilla, remove from flame when adding it. It is now one of my favorites.
