My first blog is a survey!  I have to keep the tradition going... right?   1. How do you like your eggs?    The question should be ‘how don’t I like my eggs’.  I can eat an egg just about any way, except for slimy side up. Blech!   2. How do you take your… MORE

About this Cook
Cooking is a way for me to be creative and unwind. I love to come home from work and make a nice dinner while sipping a glass of Red Wine.
My favorite things to cook
I like to make things I have never made before, but I do have a few tried-and-true recipes that I tend to rely on.

Rum Raisin Bread Pudding with Warm Vanilla Sauce
This was a great recipe. Every Christmas we make a Swedish traditional hot drink called Glogg that is made with rum and port wine and spices. It also has raisins and prunes in it, but there is always leftover prunes and raisins. I didn't want to waste them so I started searching for a recipe I could incorporate them into and came across this one. It was delicious. When it came time to sauteing the apples, I tossed the prunes and raisins in and cooked slightly. The final touch was that wonderful rum sauce. OH MY GOODNESS is that ever good. -though my husband happened to be walking by when I was finishing it up and he tasted it and said "It needs more Rum!" as he tipped the bottle and poured about a 1/4 cup in. It was very rummy and very delicious. Such a great recipe. I will definitely make this one again.

Sauce Rosee
This recipe has wonderful flavors, however I thought the amount of oil and the amount of sugar was a bit much. I did not use the amount of oil called for, but I did use the two tbsp of sugar and although we all liked the sauce, we felt it was a bit too sweet. I will cut the sugar back a tbsp next time and add more red pepper flakes for a bit more spice. All in all this is a very nice recipe that I will definitely use again with a few minor modifications. My husband thought this sauce would be good with Shrimp added. May try that next time.

Daddy Charles's Spooley
These were good. We didn't make a huge amount of these instead we made them by the glass, as reviewer Lillian suggested. After two of these, we couldn't remember the name of them and we were calling them "Uncle Charlies Sloopy". FAIL! -HA, but that is its new name in my house. We made them again the next night and added a splash of pineapple juice on the top which I liked even better. This will make a great summer drink.
