About this Cook
I love to cook and the older I get, the more I want simple, tasty, wholesome recipes that I can whip up quickly. But I'm not adverse to going out on a limb to try something new, tricky, or unusual if I think it will be a winner.
My favorite things to cook
I'm always open to trying something new, but at the end of the day, I love to bake. Cakes, pies, cookies, or breads. And, I love to can my own produce.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Old Fashioned Ice-Box Cookies: My Grandmother made them with her mother every Thanksgiving, my sister and I made them with my Grandmother when we were kids, and I carry on the family tradition.
My cooking triumphs
The Osso Bucco I made in 2000 based on a "Cooking Light" recipe. To this day it's the best thing I've ever made.
My cooking tragedies
The organic chicken I tried to roast in 2002; the darn thing never really cooked and we ended up throwing it away and ordering take-out. It was one disgusting specimen of poultry! We still laugh about that old, dried, up old....rooster.

Downeast Maine Pumpkin Bread
I was a little skeptical that there were too many good reviews but it is as good as the reviews say. I did make some amendments....I replaced half the oil with apple butter, added about 1.5 cups of finely chopped pecans, and added a streusel topping and made 24 muffins instead of loaves, but it is seriously good, better the next day split and toasted with butter. Just terrific.
