About this Cook
I learned to cook at the knee of my grandmother about the time I was 8 or 9. She was a down home Yankee cook, with some southern roots. Quite a combination. While my mom is a fair cook, I call her the queen of processed foods. She can do miracles with a box or a can. I prefer the from scratch method.
My favorite things to cook
Christmas cookies
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making dozens of cookies with my friend and her sons, now grown. I still miss it!
My cooking tragedies
Biscuits. Can't make them to save my life! A pot of Chicken and homemade dumplings early in my marriage. I messed the dumplings up and ended up with gluey, thick, unedible mess.

Espresso Bark
I used dark chocolate covered expresso beans instead of regular coffee beans. Our group of friends is coffee crazy, spending hours at a local coffee house together. I added the instant coffee to the chocolate as well. It was fabulous and was a great addition to the custom baskets I am making for Christmas.

Fruit Cocktail Cake
My mom made this cake for us when we were growing up. I decided to try it for my husband. When mom couldnt' find her recipe, Allrecipes came to the rescue. I substituted Splenda (white and brown) for the sugar, and it came out great. My husband loved it. I also used Fruit Cocktail in it's own juice instead of heavy syrup.
