About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake, and mostly desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Mixing by hand. My mother had a weak electric hand-mixer when I was little, but she never used it. I still think the red plastic bowl (which I have now) and a wooden spoon make things taste better!
My cooking triumphs
I'm new at this, so right now I'm impressed with myself for being able to pull off a layered cake.
My cooking tragedies
The first half-dozen layered cakes I tried to make. I made one for my mom's birthday and it was a disaster, but I thought I'd bring it to her anyway and we'd both get a good laugh ... then I dropped it in the driveway.

Cranberry Bars
I make these every autumn, and everyone loves them. I'm starting to worry what may happen if I show up at a holiday party WITHOUT them. :)
