About this Cook
I love to bake and my husband loves that I love to bake :) Trying new recipes and modifying to make them my own seems to be my style of cooking. I always tell folks I don't think I have made the same dish twice. I seem to be unable to stop experimenting; and cooking calms my soul. I can stay in the kitchen for hours and only stop cooking because I do have a food budget!! I make my own dogfood and dog treats and I swear I may just begin making treats for the neighborhood squirrels. NOT! I love to read, work in the garden, and work in the yard. I have a degree in Computer Information Science, live in the Rocky Mtns, and love camping in our National Parks. Life is good in Colorado!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is anything that is sweet and must be baked. So baking is my favorite thing to cook but I spend plenty of time slow cooking and grilling in the summer.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving! Several traditional foods and I always love to cook something new for the Turkey Day table.
My cooking triumphs
Fudge! I worked for years to make a good fudge and more often than not it just did not turn out for me. Then one Christmas my daughter, who is now32 wanted to make fudge together. Being inspired and not wanting to blow it for her, I found the greatest fudge recipe, (Marbled Fudge in an old Betty Crocker recipe book, I received as a wedding gift 15 years ago)followed the recipe to the letter,and WOW it worked! I have been making huge batches of fudge for years. Now I even give away fudge for Christmas.
My cooking tragedies
The first year I was married, following Thanksgiving, I decided to try a Turkey Lasagna. I used veges, turkey, lasaga noodles, and an alfredo sauce. Well, my husband hated it and begged me never to make it again.:)) I never did.

Easy Cajun Jambalaya
Pretty good. I followed some of this recipe and a Johnsonville's Sausage recipe I found while clipping coupons. Seems pretty tasty following both recipes. I did cook my rice separate from other items. I wish I had some chicken or shrimp to add but next time. I made beans and rice on side anyway for meals later in the week. I am going to make something with sweet potatoes to offset the spice of the jambalaya and beans.

Peanut Butter Banana Oatmeal Raisin
I followed some modifications made by other cooks and these are pretty good. I am still modifying for my own personal taste, however, my husband likes these for breakfast/break at work. He is a construction plumber and it is so difficult to get him to eat breakfast. I put a peanut butter filling in the middle of two cookies for him. These cookies work because they turn out soft yet workable for the filling.
