I have been roaming all over this web site since August 2009 and thought I should become a supporting member. Just looked like the thing to do. I have really enjoyed the recipes and reviews. I have found the reviews more than just a little helpful. And, now that we have found that my husband… MORE

About this Cook
I have a yen to be self sufficient or as close as I can. So, hubby and I have our own little farm in Oregon and we raise cattle, pigs, chickens and turkeys so far. We also have a dog, cat and donkey.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and try new things. I grow lots of stuff and am ready to begin having a year round garden in a greenhouse. Any meal is a pleasure especially if he likes it. I enjoy canning what I grow and catch (fish).
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have cows and milk so I have access to all the milk I can use. My grandmother used to make something we called Fried Cottage Cheese. It is a little sour and cooked very dry. It browns and takes a gallon of raw milk to make about 1/2 pound. I make Banana pudding in the extra large size for my husband as he eats it right out of the bowl. One bowl, one spoon, one man, and the dog. She will eat anything he does. I also like Cornbread dressing with chestnuts.
My cooking triumphs
I made Mozzerella cheese for the first time last month and it was so good my friend told me I should market it.Cheesecake is something I never thought I could master, but it isn't hard. Goose and duck are two things I never thought I could do, but they both passed his likes.
My cooking tragedies
I tried the fried Cottage Cheese again and it took forever to cook and almost burned. I think the milk wasn't soured enough.

Chocolate Surprise Cupcakes
I made this from a cookbook I have and was very glad to see it here. I made a mistake when putting the ingredients together and put the dry chocolate in the cream cheese and bits, so I added everything else and stirred. Then I sprayed with Pam and filled a mug 1/2 full of the mixture and baked for 1 minute. Repeating this until the mixture was gone. You need to clean the mug after every use as moisture collects in the bottom, so wipe or wash and spray just a quick spray of Pam, it came out like a lava cake. The cream cheese when to the bottom and was a great dessert with my life saver dinner last night when the oven went out. I did use cider vinegar as I had no white vinegar and I used 3 banty eggs.

Applesauce Barbeque Sauce
This recipe saved my dinner tonight. I made the sauce yesterday and thought I would follow one reviewers instructions and bake at 175 for 2 hours and spread sauce over meat every 15 minutes. Well my oven died about 4 hours before I was going to start the meat and so I had already put in into a crock pot because I heard the Lord say to. Well, was I ever glad. After a couple of hours I took the meat and drained it and dipped it into the sauce and laid each piece back into the crock pot and turned it back on. I was really sweating not knowing how I was going to make the ribs taste good and not be sauceless. They came out perfect. I'll admit I did tweak the recipe a little. I make my own applesauce with sugar and cinnamon so I left out the cinnamon and 1/2 the sugar. I mada a second batch for dipping and didn't need it. THANK YOU for this recipe...
