About this Cook
I love to bake - especially cookies. The more complicated, the better. But I tend to stick to my tried and true recipes because I don't have enough time to experiment. And I have to know that what I am making will come out good. I tend to have company often and I do my best to keep up my reputation as a good cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Baking Hannukah cookies. And hamantaschen Purim time.
My cooking triumphs
I made a chocolate cake in a pretty bundt pan to bring to a friend's party. When it would not come out of the pan nicely (even after greasing and flouring), I turned it into a death by chocolate trifle. It was the hit of the party and there was not a drop left over.
My cooking tragedies
My most recent attempt to make a chocolate fudge cake - it came out like soup!

Roast Sticky Chicken-Rotisserie Style
Yum! I used only one teaspoon of salt and then rubbed the entire spice mixture on my 3 lb chicken. My husband actually asked for doubles! Can't wait to make it again.

Hot Fudge Pudding Cake III
I don't know what I did wrong but I followed the directions exactly and it came out horrible. The pudding never thickened - it was extremely watery. That made the cake very soggy. And the cake did not even taste very good. I found it to be very bland and fake tasting. So we did not even bother picking at it and eating off the top.Thankfully, my guests had cancelled on me so there was no one there to view my flop but my husband. But the recipe has gotten such great reviews so I might try it again - but not when we are expecting company!

Spinach and Strawberry Salad
Yum!!!! But I made a few changes of course. I used apple cider vinegar instead of white wine vinegar because I don't like wine vinegars. I also added some mango slices. And I can't understand why anyone would want to make such a refreshing and delightful salad and then drown it in oil. I followed the recipe for the amounts for all the dressing ingredients except for the oil. I only used 1 1/2 tablespoons of oil and that was just fine. I'll probably only use 1 tablespoon next time. I also used splenda instead of sugar.
