About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! Cupcakes, cookies, pies, cakes, candies. I love anything sweet. I love to experiment with recipies, food coloring, and making my own recipies!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year at Thanksgiving, my family cooks dinner together. We butter up the turkey, stuff him, and season him together. It's a family event! For christmas, our food tradition is that we make holiday sweets together. Sugar cookies, peppermint bark, you name it! We also get our family pets involved in the feasting! They each get their own plate. :)
My cooking tragedies
One year, my mom asked me to make holiday sugar teachers for her student teachers. I was eager to prove my baking abilities! I decided to get really festive, and split the doe in half and dyed each section. One red, one green. My mom was devastated, as I learned adults don't find bright colors very appetizing.

My Favorite Sugar Cookies
This is my second cookie recipe of the day. This, unfortunately, did not work for my cut outs. They spread and turned to thin pieces of cardboard. Not what I was looking for. I was however, able to make some beautiful drop cookies. I rounded a ball of dough, and flattened it against a plate of colored sugar. Then put on the sheet and baked for 10 mins. The result was a beautifully cracked color coating on top of the cookie.

Oh my gosh! This is amazing. I didn't even know what Divinity was until today. I decided to make it because it seemed challenging. It was also one of my grandmother's favorite candies. I followed the directions to the T. It came out perfect! My first spoonful looks so beautiful, almost like a smooth meringue! The other ones look a little more lumpy and sticky... I moved too slow. I can't express how excited I am that this came out right on my first try! Not to mention... it's super yummy!

Easy Decadent Truffles
The texture was great... but I'm not a fan of cheese cake. The cream cheese made it taste like cheese cake to me. They were okay... but like I said, I'm not a fan of cheese cake. If you like a smooth texture and a little cheese cake flavor, this is for you!
