About this Cook
I love to cook (especially desserts). All my family members are spectacular cooks, so I was raised to appreciate it.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts by far! I have fun cooking and making up my own dessert recipes!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family makes every meal homemade. That's how I was raised. Cookies from scratch, mashed potatos from the real things, etc. It's been such a comfort and a blessing to be around my family and not have take out!
My cooking triumphs
I have an award winning brownie recipe that I created. I also make mini cheesecakes in a variety of flavors that are divine! However, my salsa recipe is the family favorite.

Mini Cheesecakes I
Fabulous recipe! So simple! I have only made plain cheesecakes one time. I have altered the recipe to make white chocolate raspberry, carmel, peanut butter, turtle, and strawberry. I am getting very creative w/flavors and will someday have a list to rival the Cheesecake Factory! : ) I used fresh fruit for the raspberry and then preserves for the strawberry. I find the ones w/fruit take about twice as long to bake. The peanut butter has probably been the biggest hit out of all the flavors! I just made the plain, peanut butter, turtle, and strawberry for a wedding reception (I made about 200 of them). They were gobbled up within moments! This recipe is definately a keeper! Some tips- I've used both the little mini muffin pans and normal muffin pans. I prefer mini, but I think it really helps if you use muffin liners. I used a water bath the 2nd time I used this recipe, and am not sure if it made a difference, except by making my oven feel 4 times hotter! I'd like to think it made a difference, so I will do it again. Garnishing these little bite sized beauties really sets them off and it's also very fun! You can't go wrong w/this recipe. Please let me know if anyone wants details on the specific flavors I used and how I made them. Happy baking!

Salsa is the fresh condiment you can make at home and put on everything.
