About this Cook
I'm a missionary living in Mexico. My hobby of baking is not always easy with my 18 month old, but I love trying new recipes from
My favorite things to cook
I love learning new Mexican dishes (the real thing, not tex-mex), since I'm here, I have alot of opportunity to do so.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I could never give up the huge feasts we have at Thanksgiving and Christmas, and of course I always bake a cake when there's a birthday.
My cooking triumphs
I pulled off thanksgiving for twelve all by myself last year, and it was only my second turkey!
My cooking tragedies
The thanksgiving turkey before last year! Once I mistook pork lard for shortening and used it to make a pie-that was nasty. Too many to list.

White Frosting
I had never even hear of a cooked frosting before! Thank you for this recipe! People should know that its not sweet and tastes nothing like buttercream. It has all the lightness of whipped cream, only it holds together way better. I used all butter this time, it was very good, but I might try it with the shortening next time. This is my new go-to recipe for white frosting.

Crispy and Creamy Doughnuts
I'm very sorry for the low review, but this doughnut was just ok at best. I wouldn't want anyone else to waste their time and ingredients. I followed the recipe exactly and I know I did everything right, and they were just very ordinary. I will keep searching for a good doughnut recipe.
