About this Cook
I love to cook for friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! Cookies, quick breads, cakes, you name it. I'm an "experimenter". The first time I make a recipe, I follow it to a tee, after that, it's more of a "guideline". :)
My cooking triumphs
Banana cake with peanut butter frosting. My husband (back when we were dating) would bring a bunch of over ripe bananas to my house once a week so I would make him a banana cake.
My cooking tragedies
Tuna casserole. My kids cried. Enough said.

Hot German Potato Salad III
I've been making this for years and didn't realize I never rated it! I double the sauce, use cider vinegar instead of white, a ton more bacon (we are bacon lovers) and use half celery seed/half celery flakes. I lost my German great-grandmother's recipe and with my tweaks on this recipe it is the same as hers. Another thing...I always, always, always throw this together and put it in a slow (225F) oven for a few hours, give or take. It really melds the flavors, I try to make this the day before I want it because it's always better the next day.

Pumpkin Crunch Cake
We are a pumpkin dessert loving family and this was not a hit. I had high hopes, but none of us could get past the artificially, overly sweet cake-mix topping. The pumpkin filling was very good, I added more spice than the original recipe.
