About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook most anything, but my passion is baking. My goal is to retire in Mexico and open a bakery. People ask me all the time to create something special for them, and I think I have a pretty good sense for flavors. Maple truffles are my Dad's favorite, but I think I'm most proud of my Chocolate Ganache Raspberry Cake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom has tons of recipes that I alter or improve on. I think my favorite tradition is baking cookies at Christmas. It has been a tradition in my family for decades, and we only bake the "normal" cookies. We do add one special type of cookie, but it changes yearly!
My cooking triumphs
My best triumph is in baking; I made a chocolate tiered cake for a work party and it was wonderful. It was a 3-tier chocolate cake with chocolate butter cream filling and frosting. I decorated it with white icing and strawberries. People were impressed...I was impressed!!!
My cooking tragedies
The worst cooking experience of my life...had to be when I was trying to cook authentic Chile Rellenos. The recipe is super easy, but my first time was terrible. Long story short...I smelled like burnt oil for a week!!

Double Chocolate Cheesecake
I followed this recipe exactly. It turned out very creamy and had a nice cheesecake flavor, but double chocolate it is not. If you want a true chocolate cheesecake look elsewhere.

Lemon-Orange Orange Roughy
My husband and I love Orange Roughy, but this recipe was a bit sour. Normally I put lime in just about every fish recipe, but I think the OJ and lime was a little too much. However, we ate the finished meal and won't be turned away!

Stuffed Eggplant with Shrimp and Basil
This is a great recipe for eggplant. I followed the recipe to a "T", and was pleasantly surprised. The bread crumbs and cheese give the mix a stuffing taste, but I love it! I served this with parmesan couscous; a great partner!
