About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, especially super easy cakes that look complicated but really arent.
My favorite family cooking traditions
making ginger bread houses and sugared peanuts at christmas time with friends and dyeing easter eggs with the same people every year.
My cooking triumphs
Coconut cake, I actually got the recipie from here and modified it to make a layered cake. I am now required to bring it for every family function.
My cooking tragedies
lemonade cake. It came out half perfect and half soup! I just sliced the good half and served it on a plate, no one knew there was ever a problem!

Chewy Coconut Cookies
I made these for a cookie exchange and they were a huge hit. They are the perfect balance of buttery and chewy with just the right amount of coconut. LOVE them as they are with no tweaks to the recipe!

Chocolate Decadence Cake I
I really liked this cake but I had a very hard time telling when it was done cooking. I left it in for 50 mins and it was still quite liquid in the center. I kept baking at 10 min increments until I got to 2 hrs. total and had to cover the top with foil to prevent burning. I finally gave up and tossed it in the fridge (still incredibly wet in the center). It was very nice after a night in the fridge and sliced well. I guess it just needs to set before it solidifies. Now that I know what to look for, I will definetly make this again. The taste and texture is fantastic!

Janet's Rich Banana Bread
Very good banana bread- the only tweak I made was that like a lot of other reviewers, I mashed the bananas instead of slicing them- I personally don't like chunks of fruit in my bread. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly and it was great!
