About this Cook
I live in the middle of the U.S. in a farming communtiy. Gardening, reading and cooking are the things you'll mostly find me doing. I also enjoy horseback riding & my many pets. A husband & teen, I have 1 of each.
My favorite things to cook
Bread & BBQ are 2 of my favorite things to cook. I do enjoy a food challenge. Last year it was curing my own brisket for Corned beef & pastrami & porkloin for Canadian bacon. This year sausages & scratch cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Bread and brittle. I learned to bake bread with my Mom. It was her favorite thing to make. My Aunt made the best peanut brittle ever. She'd stopped making it in the later years but when I told her how much I enjoyed her brittle, she opened the vault ,gave me the recipe & handed over the brittle torch to me.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that turns out the way I wanted it to or exceeds my expectations! Like my homemade bratwurst.
My cooking tragedies
Let's not go there! I prefer not to think about my kitchen disasters besides my child can gleefully recount all of them.

Pasta with Salami and Peas
i used all the ingredients the recipe called for but cut WAY back on the oil and butter. I also crisped the salami. The DH and I liked the end result well enough.

Sausage Balls
For a simple quick dinner these are great with sausage gravy for a dipping sauce. My DH did saw this made on a cooking show. When I read the reviews there, many said the recipe was dry. If you mix this in a stand mixer long enough it comes together like creaming butter & sugar. A spicier sausage ups the flavor too!

Scampi-Style Scallops Over Linguine
I give the recipe 5 stars because the submitter said this was a starting point and I believe she is right. The scallops I had to work with weren't the highest quality but that isn't her fault. The dish lacked that punch of flavor I thought it would have. I felt if I hadn't followed the recipe to a T but had thrown in some more wine, garlic. That some more something my taste buds were waiting for, it would have been really good. It is a great starting point though.
