About this Cook
I love to cook and bake for all my family and friends. I started cooking very young, but I enjoy making a wide variety of foods.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, I like a good challenge. I do a lot of confections and chocolates and have a small business selling them.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I love that we don't have many traditions. One Halloween might be a vegan buffet for everyone, while the next might be burgers and chicken sausage.
My cooking triumphs
I managed to bake my own wedding cake. It was five layers, each a different flavor, none of them white. The cakes, icing, decoration, everything turned out beautiful.
My cooking tragedies
When I first started making chocolates, I was learning to temper chocolate and had to throw away countless batches of filled caramels that had bloomed.

Addictive Sweet Potato Burritos
I love this recipe and have made it many times. I use black beans and always add a touch of salt and coriander to the bean mixture. We always eat them with hot sauce and sour cream. Delicious!

Orange Chocolate Muffins
this is a great recipe. Instead of grating chocolate, I used mini chocolate chips. I made sure to cream the butter and sugar well, then mixed it a lot with the eggs to fluff everything up. The result was wonderful. They baked up beautifully to a perfect color and firm top.
