About this Cook
Mom to 5 grown kids. Gramma to 7, 6 awesome boys and one adorable girl. Full time homemaker in a small town in the beautiful Palouse of eastern Washington. One pet pug, 13 chickens, and two outside cats.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and have had a cake baking business in the past. I love to try new recipes for friends and family. I bake bread regularly and try to make everything I can from scratch. I have my own laying hens and a growing vegetable garden. We find ourselves eating raw food and very little meat these days.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite is to make big breakfasts for family at holidays or other family get togethers.

Apple Bundt Cake
I have made this cake a few times now and it is always a huge hit. I usually make it when I have some extra apples I need to use. The first time I made it with 6 apples, sliced in the food processor. It was wonderful! I also use coconut oil because it is so good for you! It does take longer to bake in my oven but the result is worth waiting for. (possibly because of adding more apples.)

French Silk Chocolate Pie
Just keep whipping. Just keep whipping. Oh my, I thought I had ruined this. I was using 1/2 dark sweet choc and 1/2 milk choc chips so reduced the sugar to 1/4 c. I also added the vanilla to the butter first by mistake and had the cottage cheese appearance even with the 5 minute beat between the eggs. So I just left it whipping for about 20 minutes more and voila, it is perfect. Don't give up, just keep whipping!

Aunt Connie's Coconut Cake
This cake is a hit for many reasons. It is BIG and with the addition of a tad bit more salt - it would be perfect. I increased it to 1/2 t. and will do more next time. 3/4 or 1 teaspoon seems about right. Other than that I made it as directed and it came out fine. My oven seems a bit slow so I did 310' and it was perfect right at the 90 minute mark. I did use coconut oil with unsalted butter in the frosting and it is superb. If I can next time I would like to bake it a couple days ahead and let it develop its best flavor before frosting and serving. Thank you for sharing this gem!
