About this Cook
I'm a bookkeeper by trade. I raised 2 wonderful children, now grown and gone. My hobbies other than baking and cooking are crochet, reading, horse racing, and the Bengies Drive-in Theatre. I also enjoy playing board and card games.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cookies, bars, and cakes. I also bake my own bread; my favorite kitcen appliance is my bread machine! I like finding new chicken and side dish recipes. I also enjoy using my slow cooker.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year near Christmas our family gets together for a whole weekend for non-stop cookie baking for gifts to teachers and coworkers.
My cooking triumphs
Six time blue ribbon winner with my family's secret sugar cookie recipe. No, don't even think of asking. The only way you get this recipe is to marry into the family!
My cooking tragedies
Well, the discovery that you can't do more than double the cream cheese cookie recipe was a pretty expensive mess....

Salmon with Brown Sugar Glaze
Quick and easy, but mustard taste was too strong. Will make again, but with more brown sugar.

Glazed Nuts
I was not that impressed with these nuts. They were not as visually appealing or as tasty as some other candied nut recipes I've tried, such as Cinnamon-Roasted Almonds on this site. I wish I had just used that coating recipe for the walnuts too. I think by adding the clove and ginger this recipe might be trying too many flavors. This also didn't seem as sweet to me, even though it uses the same amount of sugar as the other.

Chipotle Honey Roasted Peanuts
Pretty good. I made some to include in gift assortments, and some to eat myself. I thought they were not too hot but rather had just the right amount of kick to please a wide variety of people, but I like spicy foods. My friend, who is not big on hot stuff, thought them too spicy. I took them out after 25 minutes because I was afraid they were going to burn, but that's probably just my oven.
