About this Cook
I have been cooking and baking since I can remember. It's always been a serious hobby of mine that I would one day love to make a career. Cooking and baking bring excitement to our lives and make the food we eat more "colorful." I love to see the anticipation of someone recieving my goey peanut butter cookies or see someone's mouth water when they eat my homemade pizza. It's a thrill.
My favorite things to cook
I absolutely love baking! I love making different cookies and desserts. I especially love the desserts from my dutch heritage with my favorite being, banket. Yummy!!!
My cooking triumphs
Banket, a dutch treat, is hard to make and takes patients. When I made my first stick of banket, I was delighted.
My cooking tragedies
Making an apple pie and adding WAY too much flour to the filling. It looked like snot.

Strawberries and Cream Cake
This cake was dense, chewy, rubbery and plain gross. The cream cheese frosting did not go well with the whip cream filling and the batter did not make 3 cakes, it only made 2. I am an avid baker and I can't believe all the great reviews this cake got! GROSS!

Vegan Bean Taco Filling
I've been looking for some good vegetarian recipes and came across this great vegan recipe. I love black beans and this recipe made them taste amazing. I put the taco filling in some whole wheat/high fiber taco shells...all the fiber you need to last you for a day (or maybe even two)!
