About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year on Thanksgiving and Christmas, Grandma made each family a pan of home made hot rolls. You know the kind; a pinch of this, a hand full of that. Now that she's gone, the tradition lives on through me. Soon, I'll be teaching our daughter, nieces and nephew. When the house fills with the smell of fresh bread, I just smile and think of her.

Elin's Pickled Pumpkin
These are beyond addictive! Followed the recipe to the letter and they came out perfect. Crispy, sweet and tart, they were a hit at Halloween. Next batch gets canned and sent to friends and family. Yes, they're THAT good! Thank you so much, Elin!

Spicy Cranberry Chutney
This is absolutely wonderful! Very light and refreshing. I did take the advice of other reviewers: used orange juice instead of water, extended the cooking time until the cranberries burst, didn't use the pepper flakes and cut the amount of crystalized ginger in half. I did, however, add some of the ginger syrup left over from making the crystalized ginger for a bit more kick. At the end of cooking, I also added some pomegranate seeds for a nice crunch. This went over so well on Thanksgiving, I had to make another batch the next day! Did I mention that it's fantastic over vanilla ice cream? Many, many thanks, Bea, for a new family favorite!

Watermelon Fire and Ice Salsa
This is absolutely perfect as is. I did substitute red peppers for the green. Green peppers don't like me. I usually have to make a double batch, however, as we have a few in the family who prefer a spoon to a chip. Many thanks!
