About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Anything sweet! Cookies, cakes, pies, candy...if it's dessert, I'll make it!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Christmas cookies and candy.
My cooking triumphs
My chocolate chip cookies - everybody loves them! My former advisor still asks me to send him a batch every year at Christmas.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to roast a turkey once. It came out pale as a ghost and had no flavor. My technique has improved, but my annual Thanksgiving guests will never forget that first attempt at roasting turkey.

Mexican Corn on the Cob (Elote)
Finally tried this. Yes, I followed advice of other reviewers and mixed mayo w/ lime juice and sprinkled corn with cayenne pepper and cumin. Also totally skipped butter (I actually forgot the butter, but then realized that it was not necessary). This was met with skepticism, but was quickly devoured. So quickly that not everyone got to try it! Will definitely be making this again.

Slider-Style Mini Burgers
Delish! Made these guys last night and enjoyed them with some friends. Super easy and quick to put together. I did follow another reviewer's advice and added a honey mustard glaze to the top of the buns. I have to say, that glaze added another level to these awesome sandwiches.

Cowboy Tacos
OK, so I did not follow this EXACTLY. I really just jumped on the idea of using pork meat with taco seasoning, salsa, and apricot preserves as a base taco filling and it was delicious! I just threw all of those ingredients in a dish, baked it until heated through, and everyone gobbled it up. No leftovers! Super easy, healthy; this will be a staple in our house. Thanks for the idea!
