About this Cook
I daydream of baking...
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, cakes, and quick breads are my favorites, but I try not to discriminate!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Huge, noisy, crowded Thanksgiving and Christimas dinners filled with delicious food and family
My cooking triumphs
My father, who is an absolute cookie snob ("The cookie has to been flat but chewy, no chocolate chips but lots of nuts, and not too sweet...")amazingly approved of a cookie recipe that I created..ah, one of life's biggest challenges...
My cooking tragedies
I'm a klutz...Catching oven-mitts on fire, cookbooks on fire, pork roasts on fire, dropping a pie while taking it out of the oven, licking the spoon that I used seconds beforehand to stir the homemade caramel I was making (stupid, stupid girl...I have no will power and clearly, no common sense) and the list goes on and will undoubtedly continue:)

Grandma Johnson's Scones
I've always been intimidated to make scones, but this recipe is surprisingly easy! The flavor isn't bad as-is, but there's definitely room to improvise. The texture, however, was a little too moist for my liking.

White Chili with Ground Turkey
I really didn't like the flavor of this chili. I made it as written. The chili, itself, really comes together well, but there's just something about the flavor that I didn't like...I'm not sure if it's the cinnamon/cheese combo.

Simple Whole Wheat Bread
Wow...This is easily the best whole wheat bread I've ever made. Usually, when I attempt a whole wheat recipe, the bread inevitably comes out really dense, and well, not good. This bread, however, is really light and soft with a slightly crispy crust. The flavor is a bit sweet, though, a lot like Roman Meal brand, but that can be adjusted.
