About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Anything easy and fairly lowfat. I also like making desserts. But the bottom line is that is has to be easy to prepare, and not too many ingredients.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always make toffee at Christmas for gifts, and get rave reviews. I put together a couple of different recipes, and have perfected it over the last couple of years.
My cooking triumphs
Most of the recipes I have tried from the Cooknik newsletter. It's awesome!
My cooking tragedies
My first Thanksgiving turkey didn't get finished until about 8PM because I wasn't cooking it on the right temperature. Everyone was waiting around to eat!

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
This is easy to make and tastes great. It makes a huge batch which I love because I can keep it in the refrigerator and make fresh cookies all week. We also make this and delivered to several friends and got lots of compliments.

Caramel Popcorn
Great recipe! I followed the advice and bought a big roasting pan. No need for nonstick cooking spray with all the butter in the recipe. I only cooked for 30 minutes because I like it a little chewy. I stirred it twice and it turned out great!

Aunt Teen's Creamy Chocolate Fudge
I tried to make this in hopes that I could use it for Christmas. I followed the recipe, but the fudge was hard as a rock. I wonder if it had anything to do with the weather or humidity.
