About this Cook
Stop by, where I share my journey through recipes. Recently on a low carb pathway, I have a special section just for the keto-friendly recipes I make on a daily basis.
My favorite things to cook
Baking is my favorite thing to spend time doing. The science of baking has always fascinated me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I began to love Halloween back in 1985 when I had my first son. Fun food and decorations make it special and fun, and no presents to buy-no pressure!
My cooking triumphs
-Cooking among professional chefs in The 2013 World Food Championship -Representing Bob's Red Mill in Scotland in the World Porridge Making Competition -Winning Bob's Red Mill Spar for the Spurtle in 2013 -Appetizer Host for Kraft's Real Women of Philadelphia contest for season -Making cooking videos for Kraft as contracted.
My cooking tragedies
I've had plenty-from burning toast to ruining an expensive piece of steak, if you cook enough, tragedies are bound to happen. Just like in life, live and learn.

Johnsonville Sausage Balls
Great recipe, but I will use half of the onion next time-a little too much for breakfast for me. I may even use just a dash of onion powder instead the next time. Other than that, the mushrooms were good-I chopped them fine since I'm not a true mushroom-lover. Great recipe-thanks, Johnsonville!

Ground Beef and Cabbage
I love the simplicity of this recipe, using what most of us have on hand. It tastes like a dish my grandma used to make back int he 60s. I followed the recipe exactly except for substituting mild Italian sausage for the beef, which was wonderful. I think the seasonings in the sausage really added something to the taste. Great recipe-thanks for sharing!

Key Lime Pie VII
READ THESE TIPS before making since squeezing the limes is the most time-consuming part! #1 Microwave 8-10 key limes 30-40 seconds before squeezing. They'll be warm to the touch, and when you cut them open they'll burst with juice, making it much easier to hand squeeze into a measuring cup. #2 Microwave 8-10 at a time but cut 5 open while warm and squeeze while warm. Then cut another 5 open and squeeze while warm. As they cool after cut, it gets harder to squeeze them. While they're warm, the juice just comes pouring out. #3 Don't worry about the seeds until after ALL juice is measured-then pour through a wire mesh strainer or tea strainer. Goes faster this way. These are my lime squeezing tips because it's the most annoying part. The rest is easy-so few ingredients and so wonderful. Tastes like restaurant quality pie. You'd think you're visiting The Florida Keys! Make your own whipped topping and make your own pie crust please. It makes it mo bettah. I also have additional photos on my blog
