Going backwards Z to A are my initials using my nickname first, and my last name last. I love cooking and just got a new stand mixer to replace my :( 20-year-old mixer.I got some new tools I have seen on PBS cooking shows that sparked my ideas for making cooking and baking easier, and to have… MORE

About this Cook
1. I am allergic to Poppy Seeds. Just a few make me itch all over. I wish I could share that for any person that does not know why they are itching all over! Family loves to eat what I cook. I am happy to eat what my husband cooks: he is a good cook too, so we share the kitchen. Born and raised in Minnesota. Lived in California for a decade before moving back to MN. Love getting ideas from other people.
My favorite things to cook
Roast beef: rump roast in a cast-iron dutch oven. Apple pie; chocolate chip cookies, butterscotch chip cookies: with lots of vanilla, and using Smart Balance instead of butter or shortening, for health reasons, but a benefit...Soft Cookies, ooh!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Get back to you on that.
My cooking triumphs
For Christmas 2013 I brought the meal for eight people to my in-laws' house. All food was gluten-free, and dairy-free. My mother-in-law was moved to tears, so happy to have all work done for her. She is over age 80. I roasted two turkey breasts, made a bread stuffing side dish, mashed potatoes. For dessert I made a Surprise Inside Christmas Tree cake, cocoa butter and cocoa chocolate candies, and neapolitan cookies.

Buttermilk Pancakes with Vanilla and Nutmeg
I am the author of this recipe. This is a reprint of my recipe. The original recipe page had my photograph. This page did not have my photograph, and it was so long ago I had to download from my old recipe page. I now eat gluten free and dairy free. I have done many versions of pancakes with my diet restrictions. All are based on my original recipe here.

Microwave Baked Apples
Tasty! I microwaved each apple in a glass container that fit one apple, and was tall enough to cover loosely with plastic wrap. I microwaved both apples, at the same time, rotating the containers after one minute, for 3 minutes. Then I pulled the containers out to sit for five minutes, did another 2 minutes in the microwave, then took them out to sit for 10 minutes. I had peeled the granny smith apples halfway down to make eating the apples easier at the start.

Creamy Rice Pudding
I had and used: Jasmine rice, Rice Milk, regular raisins, picked free of stems, soaked a minute and rinsed, and Earth Balance buttery sticks. I am gluten and dairy free, and I can eat eggs. My substitutions still came out DELICIOUS! I added the sugar just before adding the raisins, egg, and a bit more rice milk.
