About this Cook
I WAS MARRIED ABOUT A YEAR AND A HALF AGO (SO WE STILL LIKE EACH OTHER) COOKING AND BAKING ARE MY STRESS RELIEVERS. I WORK AT A VERY BUSY COFFEE SHOP SO JUST THE SOLITUDE OF THE KITCHEN AND THE FACT THAT THE BREAD DOUGH DOESN'T TALK IS VERY RELAXING. NO ONE BOTHERS ME IT IS MY TRUE ALONE TIME. PLUS I'M CREATING SOMETHING FROM JUST A FEW SIMPLE INGREDIENTS. IT MUST BE WHAT MICHEALANGELO FELT LIKE! :)
My favorite things to cook
bread and desserts
My favorite family cooking traditions
WHEN I WAS 19 MY GRANDFATHER PASSED AWAY AND TO KEEP MY GRANDMOTHER'S MIND OFF THINGS WE WOULD HAVE "COOKING LESSON THURSDAYS" WHERE SHE TAUGHT ME ALL SORTS OF THINGS ABOUT BAKING AND COOKING. OF COURSE WE LIVE FAR APART NOW BUT EVERY TIME I GO UP TO VISIT WE STILL HAVE OUR THRUSDAYS.
My cooking tragedies
I HAD BAKED A CAKE WITH A CREAM CHEESE FILLING FOR MY BROTHER-IN-LAWS GRADUATION PARTY. I HAD PUT IT ON MY CAKE STAND AND PUT IT IN THE FRIDGE AND IT WAS GORGEOUS. ONLY THREE HOURS LATER I REALIZED THAT I HADN'T SHUT THE DOOR ALL THE WAY AND THE CAKE HAD MELTED AND IT WAS ALL OVER THE FLOOR. HORRIBLE!!

Pumpkin Cheesecake II
We loved this recipe. We did a few minor adjustments to make it extra yummy for us. We used ginersnaps instead of graham cracker crumbs, toasted our pecans and added a little cinnamon to the crust. We also added just a smidge of brown sugar to the filling. (shout out to Abby good call) Super yummy and will def. make again.
