About this Cook
I love to cook and I am working on experimenting with recipes and letting go of having to stick to them exactly. I try and use what I have in the house and try and cut fat and calories out without compromising the taste
My favorite things to cook
Canning is my favorite thing to do. I like to can jellies, apple sauce, plum ketchup, pickles, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like to try out recipes my mom and grandma used. My grandma died when I was young so when I make her recipes it helps me to feel a connection to her. I have a great recipe for coffee cake that was her creation. I use it whenever I have company.
My cooking triumphs
Lemonade cake from Cooking Light. It is the prettiest, lightest, most moist cake. I make it for bridal showers and baby showers because it is a real pale yellow and so light tasting. Everyone loves it.
My cooking tragedies
Petit Fours. They are so pretty and I would love to be able to make them...but they are always a disaster!
