Crazycook had never made a "cobbler," so what turned out may have been as it should be, but it was not at all as I had anticipated.  Now, I must take any and all blame for this "failure," as I did alter the recipe a bit...  I had expected the finished dessert to have a cake-like topping on… MORE

Yarnell is a small town near Prescott AZ, and the area around has been ravaged by wildfire for many too many days now.  The cost has been dear... 19 firefighters, not to mention loss of property...  For all who have lost a part of their life, taken by this fire, here is my wish for you...  I… MORE

While we enjoyed the Amazing Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake, I've been on such a sugar buzz that I've not been able to choose what dessert 2 may be...  I just finished perusing addtional recipes from some alternate sites.   Some call for boxed mixes (but not ALL recipes.) I really don't know that… MORE

My first attempt at this summer's Slow Cooker dessert recipes, was quite an interesting experiment, as it turned out.  For all choco-holics, I chose Amazing Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake, having first determined that I did, indeed, have all of the ingredients.  No surprise that I did, as they… MORE

This evening, I put some steaks (a real treat,) on the grill, along side of skewers of veg's.  I did this, to keep the crazykitchen cooler.  Come this afternoon, I was also tempted to take the slow cooker full of navy beans outside...  I didn't, but might just next time!  Tomorrow will be… MORE

Sadly, I found the Moroccan Chicken with Preserved Lemons a lot of work, a lot of ingredients, and frankly "screaming" for some sweet, to offset the heat!  That is one recipe I will never make again!  I've also recently been introduced to the TV show "Chopped" on the food network.  This… MORE

A short time ago, I decided to try "preserving" a couple of lemons (while I had an abundance of fresh.)  The question now, is what to do with them?  So, off I went on a trip to the middle east via the internet, and found a few recipes.  I do believe that I'm getting a "feel" for just how, and… MORE

I recently had a misfortune, however, the end result was not near as bad as it could have been...  In an attempt to "make room" in the frige for something, I dropped the container of eggs on the floor - an 18 pk which contained 10 eggs ( I discovered when I opened it, fearing the worst!) … MORE

It was just the 14th of this month that I mentioned how excited I was, to once again be able to make some of my favorite salads... not the type of foods one would wish to eat on a cold wet day, but those flavors taste mighty fine on a hot afternoon or early evening. This morning's paper… MORE

About Me
Started cooking many years ago, and learned as I went. First meal may have been "steak & chips" at age 15, in Birmingham England, where I lived for several years. Mostly grew up in MI, transplanted to the desert 30yrs ago, or so. Favorite cookbook is "Better Homes", also enjoy "Great British Cooking, a well kept secret." Hesitate to call myself "expert," but friends do rave...
My favorite things to cook
Italian has been my "specialty" for some time, and my "signature" meal is Lasagne, salad, garlic bread, which I first made 20yrs ago... from SCRATCH, very first time I made it. (Never again, folks...) Now start with a big jar of sauce!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanks to my heritage, I have enjoyed trying foods from different cultures. We still have beer battered fish, and chips of course; ground meat dishes often, chicken occasionally, pork too. I would love to submit a bean dip recipe, however, my ex who gave me the original has passed, and I have no way to verify that it didn't come from another source! I also enjoy British cooking (with a few yankee twists) and once made Plum puddings, also known as Christmas puddings, as far as I know... what an ordeal that was, but well worth the effort. Today, there is mail order!
My cooking triumphs
Greatest triumph was not too long ago, when I held a sit down dinner for 12, Lasagne being the entree. It was a fund raiser I chose to sponsor, and am proud to say that "we" raised over $1000 from that meal alone, minimum donation being $25. All proceeds collected were donated; my partner and I provided the meal and beverages.
My cooking tragedies
MEATLOAF of all things! Went through a stage of "winging" it each time, and I pulled one after another out of the oven that were almost unedible. As yet, not too big on baking... no sweet tooth here! Have dabbled, but find doughs/pastries especially difficult, perhaps as it's 90 degrees in my kitchen much of the year.
