About this Cook
the day i got my kitchen aid mixer was the greatest day of my life. i named her "black beauty" and i think we will be happy together for a long time to come.
My favorite things to cook
anything sweet. i keep my cupboards constantly stocked with the essential ingredients for my baking creations. i am always the one to come through with a cookies, a cake, cupcakes, etc. on someone's birthday.
My favorite family cooking traditions
i was raised in a healthy household, so my mom taught me everything i know about chicken and vegetables, but my sweet tooth came from growing up on her triple chocolate brownies and criss-cross peanut butter cookies. my mom also has a massive collection of recipes that date back to my great-grandmother, including my favorite family recipe, cherry crunch.
My cooking triumphs
brownie cookies, pecan pie, pumpkin spice cookies, berry cobbler, pecan supreme cookies
My cooking tragedies
the only tragedy is the amount of sweets that i eat! needless to say, i am quite the gym rat...

Triple Berry Crisp

Cranberry Rum Punch
this punch was MUCH stronger than i had expected, but i guess it did the job! i ended up doubling up on the amount of ginger ale and cranberry juice, and squeezing in some fresh lime, just so that there was some other flavor besides rum. even still, i couldn't help but feel like my party guests and i were at prom and somebody had excessively spiked the punch...

Blueberry Oat Muffins
absolutely delicious! i even used frozen blueberries but you couldn't tell that they weren't fresh. they tasted amazing right out of the oven, later that night, the next morning, etc., but my roommates liked them so much that they didn't last much longer than that... p.s. i added an extra crunch to the top by mixing oatmeal in with the cinnamon and sugar. SO good!
