About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I just love food! Although I'm learning to really love cooking and all of the great food and flavor combinations, my favorite thing to do is bake. I love to make cookies, cakes, brownies, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mom was a spectacular cook. We had fresh baked goods every day, sunday spaghetti dinner, warm winter chili with a side of white bread with butter and grape jelly. The best day of the year was Thanksgiving - every single item was homemade... including the delicious gooey cinnamon buns we ate in the middle of the night while waiting on the turkey in the oven!
My cooking triumphs
Butterflied, semi-boneless lamb, with a balsamic and apricot sauce. OMG! So amazingly delicious. Homemade crab cakes & perfectly cooked filet mignon with a port reduction.
My cooking tragedies
Chicken in peanut sauce... I forgot to compensate for the sodium in the soy sauce and added WAY TOO MUCH salt! Gross, had to throw the whole meal out and start from scratch.

Best Cherry Pie
This recipe is fantastic. I did use corn starch instead of flour; just personal preference. I had a deep dish pie plate so I used 2-20oz jars of sour cherries and it was the perfect amount. I have always taken the easy way out and used canned cherry pie filling... never again! This pie was EASY & absolutely DELISH and my brother whose fave pie is cherry raved and asked for the recipe. And my brother-in-law who rarely gives compliments about anything loved it too! THANK YOU for this super recipe!!!

German Rouladen
This is fantastic. I thought the pickles were going to make it taste weird, but it was delicious. The flavors & textures blend perfectly. My husband LOVES this recipe, and I make it annually w/ German potato salad for his October birthday. Thanks!

Sweet and Sour Pork III
This recipe is super delish! I love sweet & sour chicken, and this is great. The sauce is just like my favorite restaurant sauce. I didn't fry the pork because I was short on time, and it was delicious anyway. YUMMY!
