Awesome Cookies!
About this Cook
I come from a family of wonderful cooks. My mom has her own catering and wedding cake business. I was always a terrible cook until I recently became a stay at home mom and had the time to practice. I am getting much better now, I believe being a good cook has everything to do with practice and good recipes! I love this website, its great to get critiques on a recipe before I spend the time to make it.
My favorite things to cook

My cooking triumphs

delicious taste, i dipped in melted chocolate. note to self... bake a little longer the first time around, the middle of the log was still undercooked.

Stuffed Chicken Valentino
i loved it, my husband thought it was just ok. i put spinach inside too. the sauce it makes naturally is nice to stir up and laddle on top. goes great with a salad.

Yum. Used 3.5 cups all purpose flour. melted the garlic in the butter with some veg. oil using the microwave. Then used a cast iron skillet to cook them up, brushed them with the garlic butter during flipping.
