When making meringue Pies most recipes call for 3 eggs, using the three egg whites to make the meringue. The trick is if you use 4 eggs in the recipe, using four egg whites for the meringue, you will have a higher and more elegant looking topping that seals well on top of the pie and makes it… MORE

It is eleven PM and I have been working diligently on my personal Cookbook I hope to have out by the end of November.  It is funny how when you start putting your recipes together you run across some favorites you have seen in a while, and the cooking bug is off and running again. As I… MORE

About Me
I have been cooking since i was 12 years old, got my first job in a restaurant when I was 14. I was trained by a professional Cook, also my Mother and Grandmother who had deep roots in the country style as well as the Pennsylvania Dutch Cooking.
My favorite things to cook
All though I can cook almost anything, my favorite thing to cook is breads. I have making homemade breads, rolls and baked goods since I was 18 and I am now 50!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Almost all of my Family Recipes center around Country Cooking, with a Dutch flare, or style. My family all comes from the deep country where you cooked what you raised.
My cooking triumphs
I once prepared and served a Banquet for President Bill Clinton when he was Governor of Arkansas. Multiple Blue Ribbons at the Arkansas State Fair as well as the Arkansas-Oklahoma State Fair.
My cooking tragedies
Once cooked a Standing Rib Roast that was so tough you needed a Skill Saw to slice it and it was already on the table.
