About this Cook
Friends enjoy my cooking and baking. It keeps them out of the kitchen and keeps me doing what I enjoy. I have come up with many of my own recipes by trial and error. During the winter I like to bake and summer and fall I enjoy using fresh produce from the garden in my cooking.
My favorite things to cook
It is hard for me to say what things I like to cook the most. I see a recipe that sounds good, I make it. Some great recipes have been added to my recipe boxes and of coarse there are some that I would not make again.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really try to keep my cooking and baking healthful. So when I look at recipes that sound good, there may have to be some changes made to bring the fat calories down if possible. If not they are not made often. I collect cookbooks and am constantly online for more recipes.
My cooking tragedies
About 30 years ago I invited guests over for a beef roast supper. Unfortunately, my pot roast really shrunk (and burned), so ended up pulling hot dogs out of the freezer. So much for showing off my culinary skills at that time.

Vegan Cupcakes
The flavor was good, but they were really greasy. Don't think I will be making these again.

Poppy Seed Dressing II
The only thing I added was some chopped apple. This would be very good over a fruit or veggies. We love this over spinach with dried cranberries, walnuts, and orange slices. Sometimes we even throw on fresh strawberries.

Chicken Noodle Salad with Peanut-Ginger Dressing
This was excellent. Used less chili garlic sauce, 1 tsp., because all I could find was a chili garlic paste instead of sauce. Did not add the red pepper flakes and used some powdered ginger instead of fresh. Will be making this and packing it for lunches often.
