About this Cook
From my username, i love horses, as well as art, music, poetry, baking, theatre, Disneyland, family and friends. I enjoy cooking with allrecipes member: sunshinequine. We love trying new recipes and giving new twists to old favorites. Our greatest undertaking has been creating gluten-free foods without compromising flavor! Its been great to see friends and family fall in love with these gluten-free creations as well.
My favorite things to cook
Asian, Greek, Italian, and French foods. Healthy and simple but with a burst of flavor. Gourmet but not too expensive, although i will splurge on a bold ingredient that i know will be the star of the dish! Easy but not quick; food is an art and i dont mind taking the time for preparation and presentation. And I am a tea-aholic!
My favorite family cooking traditions
While German heritage brings delights like apple strudel and beef stews, i really go nuts for Asian cuisine, French cooking techniques, and Italian ingredients.
My cooking triumphs
An Italian 5 course dinner for friends and family including: Pesto toasts, melon and prosciutto platter, Italian salad, garlic bread, homemade lasagna, homemade cannolis. I love cooking and baking with allrecipes member: sunshinequine! Some of our greatest accomplishments include coconut cream pie, cream puffs, onion rings, and "clone of a cinnabon".
My cooking tragedies
A lemon meringue pie that was just disaster. I forgot to bake the crust before putting the lemon and meringue on top. then wanted the pie to cool faster so i put the pie in the freezer and the meringue shrank to a tiny plop in the center. the filling tasted great though!

Apple Strudel Muffins
DONT PANIC! Yes the batter is thick, but these muffins turn out great. Quite the opposite of some other muffins I love to make where the batter is so runny! They are a little drier than expected. I used 2 cups of apples. I also added 1 tsp. cinnamon, 1/2 tsp. nutmeg and 1/4 tsp. cloves to the recipe. And added 1/2 tsp. nutmeg to the topping recipe. Served great with tea!

Old Fashioned Onion Rings
Great with Panko bread crumbs. I fryed them in a skillet with Olive Oil. They cook very quickly this way: 30 seconds on each side.

Chai Cupcakes
These cupcakes were so moist! One family member says: "These were the best cupcakes I've ever had!" I topped them with vanilla frosting.
