About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, I recently learned that I have Celiac disease - so now I look for good gluten free receipes. That's what I'll be adding here. They'll all start with gluten free in the title.
My cooking tragedies
My very first Thanksgiving as a newlywed I wanted to make a perfect dinner. I also made a traditional pecan pie. The directions said to mix the pecans in and pour into pie shell. No way!! I wanted mine to look like the restaurant kind with the pecans on the top. I carefully placed them on top and put it in the oven. When it was finished, I went to take it out and I had glazed pecans covering the inside of the oven. Steam had built up under the pecans and when it burped, I got glazed pecans EVERYWHERE. Since then I have realized that the pecans raise to the top while cooking. All was not lost because I also made a pumpkin pie. A different THanksgiving I put my pecan and pumpking pie in the garage overnight to keep cool. Well, mice like pumpkin pie better than pecan pie. Another Thanksgiving dinner foiled.

Gramma's Old Fashioned Chili Mac
Nice and sweet chili mac. Did anyone else notice the picture shown with this recipe has no celery but does have corn. Not quite accurate, but very delicious looking. I'm GF so I combined tomato sauce with corn starch and sugar to replace the soup. I also added corn (looks nicer and improves flavor)

Vegetable Cheese Soup I
No one in my family liked this. Creamed corn was too sweet to be mixed with processed cheese.
