About this Cook
After I could walk and talk my spanish/italian mother taught me how to cook! My father's military career also exposed me to different tastes and cultures from all over the world. I'm married, (since 1996), to the love of my life. We are blessed w/ a daughter, and a son. jojonkenne@comcast.net if you want to drop a line!
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy cooking foods of the Mediterranean, German, French, Dutch, Belgique, and good 'ole southern cookin', too! I also relish baking and making desserts, much to my waistline's chagrin!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really am looking forward to making new family traditions. I want to make sure that my children will feel comfortable in the kitchen, too.
My cooking triumphs
I'm really proud of my cheescake and lasagna.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to cook w/ wine when I was 17, and I added it to the sauce AFTER the milk! Needless to say it was a curdled and tangy flop!

Ultimate Maple Snickerdoodles
These were really great, and my family gobbled them up. I added 1 tsp. maple extract along w/ the maple syrup. (It made for a more pronounced flavor). For the maple sugar coating I added 1tsp. of maple extract to the 1/2 cup of white sugar. Placed it into my mini food processor to incorporate well. These cookies are warm and homey, and I will add to our family favorites. Thank you for such a lovely recipe.

Butterscotch Bread Pudding
I made this recipe by memory today due to my computer crashing. I forgot the butter. Guess what? You don't need it! I also added 1 tsp. maple extract, 1 tsp. cinnamon, and 1/2 tsp. nutmeg. This was so good that I had to give it away for fear of eating it all myself. Just perfect on a rainy cool Autumn day. Thanks for sharing this lovely recipe.

Turtle Cake II
This is very good and very rich. I used the caramel bits, (found in baking isle), so that eliminated the unwrapping. However they are only 11 oz. not 14 oz. So I used 2-1/2 TBSP butter, 2 tsp. vanilla, and 1/2 cup of evaporated milk to melt the caramels in the microwave. I nuked for 3-1/2 min. at 70% power. That way the caramel thickens. Do try the evaporated milk as it intensifies the caramel flavor. I thought the chocolate frosting too sweet so I upped the chocolate to 1/2 cup of bitter-sweet chocolate chips. I thought it was very decadent, and I would be proud to serve this to family and friends. Thank you for sharing your lovely recipe, K. Casler.
