About this Cook
Hi, I'm a beginning baker and I'm always learning something new. I always look for a challenge to take my skills to the next level. I bake with my boyfriend and siblings. I love to bake with siblings because I believe that four hands are better than two! I bake with my boyfriend because I feel it is a way for us to bond and spend time together.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake any kind of pastry cookies, cakes, brownies, bread, scones, and muffins. I also like to cook dinner for my family, Pasta, Rice, Big Casseroles, or something we all can enjoy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking traditions would have to be cooking together, teaching each other different ways to cook/bake. Just generally passing on knowledge.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking triumphs would probably be when me and my brother first made cheesecake. The cheesecake looked like it was made by a professional bakery. I was really proud of my brother and I for making something that looked and tasted as good as a bakery's cheesecake. So with this triumph I can now claim cheesecake as one of my specialties.
My cooking tragedies
My tragedies are many. But, one that stands out in my mind is when I was baking biscuits with my brother. We were just finishing them up when I just pulled them out of the oven. I had forgotten that we didn't need to grease the sheet for this recipe, so the biscuits come off really easy. So I pulled the sheet really fast and tilted a bit and the biscuits flew all over the floor! All that work! Thankfully there were 5 or so biscuits left so we enjoyed those as much as we could.

Five Star Cheesecake
This cheesecake is very tasty! I changed the crust recipe to be more like the Chantal's New York Cheesecake recipe on this site and it turned out wonderful. Also, I let all the ingredients stay out to get room temperature. One of the reasons I like this recipe is that it makes a smaller cheesecake than usual. The only problem I had with this recipe was the cheesecake nearly poofed out of its pan while it was baking! However, I think it was my fault because I used a hand mixer to whip all the ingredients together...! The cheesecake did fall back on itself after cooling and tasted and looked just fine. All in all, I would use this recipe again when I want to make a smaller cheesecake, but without using a hand mixer!

Grandma's Sugar Cookies
I agree with the previous reviewer that these taste like cakey snickerdoodles and I wouldn't like it any other way! I made them because I ran out of vanilla and I needed sugar cookies, also I used softened butter instead of shortening, sour milk for the buttermilk and rolled them in organic sugar. So yummy! Highly recommended.

Irish Cream Sugar Cookies
These cookies had a very unique taste they were nice and flaky not overly sweet so maybe an icing would be good I'd say if you like Irish cream then these are worth trying.
