About this Cook
I have been cooking for over forty-five years. It can be a way to relax, be creative. Since I cook to the tastes of my family audience, I can get rave reviews. Often a new recipe takes rescripting to please.
My favorite things to cook
soup pasta salad bread meals from scratch apple pie
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was an excellent apple pie maker. Her crusts were especially delectable. Because she used several varieties of apples in a pie, the flavor was like no other. However, the pastry recipe was in her head with unprecise measurements. In order to learn to replicate hers, I watched her make the dough one day, writing down each step including the quantities of dry and wet ingredients. After tweeking the measurements, and lots of practice, my pie pretty is close to hers.
My cooking triumphs
apple pie, chocolate cyber cake, corn chowder, once-a-year roast beef, chocolate chip cookies, coffee ice cream, Hungarian chicken
My cooking tragedies
Any time I get creative with one of my husband's favorite recipes.
