About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I am a beginner. I was trying to stay away from the kitchen but it keeps calling me so I am starting with the basics. Mainly baking simple desserts.
My cooking triumphs
Pizza, lasagna, banana loaf and cake mixes. So far.
My cooking tragedies
A yogurt cake from this site. I dont think it was me I believe the recipe was way off.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cake Cookies
This recipe is way too sweet for my taste. The second time around I only used 1 cup of semi-sweet chocolate chips and 1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder. Everyone prefers it this way except I should have added flour to replace the cocoa powder I left out. With the added flour I suspect the cookies wouldn't have crumbled so easily. With the modifications the taste was great otherwise you may have sugar shock. DO NOT FLATTEN COOKIES IN ANY WAY! Drop using a spoon and cookies will spread adequately when baking. I'll let you know how the third attempt goes.

Chantal's New York Cheesecake
I made this cheesecake again to see if it would be as good the second time around. I have had no complaints, everyone loves this cheesecake and there is never enough. Ensure that the cream cheese is at room temperature and always use a water bath. This cheesecake is too good to be true.

Banana Loaf Cake I
A wonderful basic recipe. Being from the caribbean I love spices and took the advice of others and added cinnamon, allspice , almond extract and an extra egg. I am also cutting back on sugar so I used 1/2 cup white sugar and 1/4 cup brown sugar. Everyone loves this recipe, this is great for beginners.
