About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, all kinds, I love giving them to friends and family to see what they think of the recipe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Venison, mashed potatoes, and gravy...I've yet to master this though.
My cooking triumphs
I cook a mean lasagna, also I love making all different kinds of cookies, oatmeal chocolate chip being my favorite. Oh, and easy green bean casserole is my favorite.
My cooking tragedies
I experimented with chocolate chip/m&m/almond cookies...bad idea, they turned out hard and weird...

Ooey-Gooey Cinnamon Buns
Delicious! I made them exactly per the directions and they came out perfectly. Oh, but they only needed cooked 20 minutes, but I think my oven is a bit hinky. I thought everything was in perfect proportion and they weren't dry at all. Oh, and I used the thread trick for cutting them, this made it so easy and didn't squish them at all!

Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins
These were very delicious. The streusel topping really sets them apart. I'm not sure if I did something wrong, but my cream cheese filling was very runny didn't really just set on top like I thought it should... but it was still delcious. I did as another reviewer said and put a tiny amount of the batter in the cup, then the cream cheese mixture, then a little more batter, this worked nicely, or doing it the way the recipe calls for is good also. Yum!
