About this Cook
I think about food just about all the time. I'm always thinking of new recipes, or dreaming of making old ones. One of my favorite things is to make "something from nothing" which I attribute to my Grandmother. I hardly ever make something the same way twice! Cooking is my therapy, my stress-releiver, my addiction. I enjoy feeding my family and making people happy.

Blueberry Buttermilk Coffeecake
I think this is a great coffee cake recipe. My kids said, "This is absolutely delicious!" I had a little leftover buttermilk after this recipe, so I made a little powdered sugar drizzle with the buttermilk to go over the top, but it really didn't need anything else!

Real Maple Butter
This is a wonderful recipe, absolutely delicious. My two cents: It's a good idea to calibrate your candy thermometer anytime you're making something where the temperature is critical. Rapidly boil water and test the temperature of the boil with your thermometer. Water boils at 212 degrees at sea level. Where I am, water boils at 215 degrees, so I add the extra three degrees onto the temperature of whatever I am making. My other hint is that when you're filling your sink with cold water, do not fill it more than a few inches. The point is to rapidly cool your syrup so that it doesn't continue to cook. I had too much water in my sink which made my pot float. As I was struggling to let some water out, a whole gush of cold water spilled into my pot and ruined my entire batch :( So sad when maple syrup is so pricey! But once I got it right, it was fabulous!
