About this Cook
I'm a CPA who does taxes, which means I have pretty much no free time. But one thing I have found that really relaxes me and takes my mind off the stresses of work has been cooking. I hardly go out to restaurants anymore because I get so caught up in creating new dishes. I also like to camp and currently am perfecting my campfire cooking skills. Other than that, I have two puppies whom I absolutely adore, and I love to travel and consider seeing the world one of my major life goals.
My favorite things to cook
I used to say it was cookies, however, in the dessert field I've really gotten into making creative cakes, but what I really love to make as of late is amazing and unique side dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All my close female relatives will have absolutely nothing to do with cooking and baking. The idea of cooking I learned from my mother was kraft macaroni and cheese on the stove and frozen fish sticks in the oven.
My cooking triumphs
My potato dishes. One of my goals has been to perfect a potato side dish. In the process I've come up with so many different ones that differ in flavor and presentation. They're my favorite thing to cook right now.
My cooking tragedies
Every time I try to make a cake they end up very dense and flat. I need to really work on that because I love cake. For now I'm sticking with cake mix and getting creative with the decorating.

Beer Bread I
Delicious. Two of my favorite things in one: beer and bread! I actually only made 1/4 of the recipe (I do that a lot with recipes since I'm just baking for me) and it worked out fine, and I had 3/4 of a can of beer left to enjoy while it was baking!

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies
Delicious. I did a little substituting to test out healthier ingredients (applesauce in place of the butter), and they were still great!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
Didn't have as much flavor as I expect blueberry muffins to have. It was better when cold, but fresh out of the oven, it was a little bland.
