About this Cook
I'm a bookkeeper by trade. I raised 2 wonderful children, now grown and gone. My hobbies other than baking and cooking are crochet, reading, horse racing, and the Bengies Drive-in Theatre. I also enjoy playing board and card games.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cookies, bars, and cakes. I also bake my own bread; my favorite kitcen appliance is my bread machine! I like finding new chicken and side dish recipes. I also enjoy using my slow cooker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year near Christmas our family gets together for a whole weekend for non-stop cookie baking for gifts to teachers and coworkers.
My cooking triumphs
Six time blue ribbon winner with my family's secret sugar cookie recipe. No, don't even think of asking. The only way you get this recipe is to marry into the family!
My cooking tragedies
Well, the discovery that you can't do more than double the cream cheese cookie recipe was a pretty expensive mess....

Mom's Country Gravy
Boy was this thick! I'd always heard a basic ratio of 1 part oil to one part flour when making a roux, so I was hesitant but went with the 3/4 cup flour. Next time I will reduce the amount of flour. I took the advice of several reviewers and used bacon grease. The taste was good. Some people had said there was a strong taste of flour; that happens if you do not cook the flour long enough before adding the milk.
