About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Anything with spices. I'm obsessed. I once ordered a pound of coriander from the internet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Whenever I go home to visit my mom, she makes me all the great things from my childhood. Mmmmm.....corn fritters.
My cooking tragedies
I sometimes have difficult in doubling/halving recipes. I have made hard round cookies and flat lacy ones. I'm getting better, though.

Spiced Pecans
I was short on sugar, so use half white sugar, half brown sugar and they still turned out great.

Sweet Potato Bread II
I followed other reviews and limited the sugar to one and a half cups plus a little extra to sprinkle on the top before baking. I've found that dusting the top of quick breads with a little bit of sugar is an excellent substitute for copious amounts of sugar in the batter plus it give the bread a great, crusty top. Like another reviewer, I substituted applesauce for all of the oil and it turned out great. I would recommend both greasing and flouring the pans, though. Also, I would add about one teaspoon extra cinnamon. My loaves cooked in one hour.

Nany's White Cake
Easy, tasty with a good consistence. I confess, I used this recipe as a base with some modifications. I substituted one quarter cup of flour with one third cup finely chopped macadamia nuts. I thought it turned out great--subtle flavor and not too sweet.
