About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to make homemade candies: truffles, Bavarian mints, peanut butter cups, peppermint patties, bon-bons, all kinds of goodies. I also love to bake. I'm getting good at pies and bars. When it comes to entrees, I love making Italian food and good old-fashioned southern cooking.
My cooking triumphs
I fiddled around until I figured out how to make home-made ravioli and sauce from scratch. Everyone says my peanut butter cups are better than the famous brand you get in the store.
My cooking tragedies
My White Chocolate Cappuccino Cake turned out to be white chocolate cappuccino SCONES. Totally not my fault. I looked at the recipe afterwards: it didn't call for any leavening, and the only liquids were the eggs and vanilla. No worries, I fixed it with a little Baileys :)

Our Favorite Balsamic Vinaigrette
I just threw everything in the blender. It was super easy and tasty. I love that I have everything on hand and can whip it up in a few minutes.

Baking Powder Biscuits I
These were just "allright". Very easy to assemble, they baked up nicely and had a good texture to them. They were just a little dry and bland. I think they would go better with some gravy rather than plain. Not too bad, but not great either. PS - I used buttermilk in place of the milk since I had some that needed to be used up.

Lebanese Lemon Lentil Soup
I cut the cayenne in half and was very glad I did. You could actually cut it even further. I also added an extra cup or so of water and ran it through the ninja blender because I like my lentil soup that way. Other than that, 100% perfect as written. I did not use the optional butter and flour. This is a very flavorful, satisfying soup that just happens to be both very healthy and vegan. This is going right into the frequently used recipes file.
