About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Cheesecake, cookies, brownies, cupcakes, and kabobs. I like recipes that are easy to follow, that uses simple, every-day ingredients and at the same time, yield delicious results!
My cooking tragedies
I have made several cheesecakes before this tragedy: I was making 2 cheesecakes at once, with both in water baths. I spilt some water onto one of the cheesecakes. My other mistake was that I did not wrap my springforms with aluminum foil, so plenty of water seeped in. I was able to salvage one, and my boyfriend said it tasted pretty good. But I'm still shaking my head thinking that was the most screw-ups in one baking session!

Pecan Sour Cream Pound Cake
Delicious! I didn't have pecans so I used walnuts instead, which was just as good. I thought the glaze was a bit too runny, but it added more flavor to the pound cake nevertheless. My cake was passed around and was gone in a few hours. I would definitely bake this again! Thanks for the recipe.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
They were super soft and delicious. They didn't rise as I expected. The walnuts added to the texture. Very yummy!

Chocolate Lovers' Favorite Cake
Delicious! I made it for my boyfriend's mother's birthday, and everyone loved it. It was rich enough that a glaze was not necessary. I balanced out the sweetness by filling the center hole with fresh raspberries and lightly dusting the whole cake with confectioners sugar. It was an easy recipe to follow. The result: chocolatey goodness!

Pile it into a tomato half, load it into a wrap, or spread it on bread. Chicken salad does it all.

Broccoli salad makes a great side dish or a light main dish on a warm night.
