About this Cook
I work in the food business and am exposed to lots of wonderful local foods from chefs and cooks from around the country. I love casual no fuss cooking with unique flavors.
My favorite things to cook
Cupcakes are my favorite, but I also enjoy throwing together a no recipe soup.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up surrounded by special occasion cakes. My mother had a small wedding cake business and I loved staying up way past my bed-time baking.
My cooking triumphs
I make steller tamales and rellenos.
My cooking tragedies
I made a cioppino that the dog wouldn't even eat.

High Temperature Eye-of-Round Roast
This is the best techique for roasting eye of round ever! I use it everytime and change up the seasonings to match my mood. Thanks a bunch for this one. I have used it now for over a year and thought it was time to show some love.

Wedding Cake
so this recipe is a bit of a bummer. after reading the reviews i added the almond extract, salt and lemon as suggested. When i was baking the cake I thought...wow thats a lot of sugar and I was right. This cake is very very sweet. I had to use shortning frosting because of the Texas heat and the combination of this cake and sweet frosting was a but much. I am afraid that if you cut back on the sugar you wont be able to cream seven eggs properly. I have to say it almost tasted like a sugar cookie cake, dense, sweet and floury (i know not a word but an accurate description) I used a tart blueberry filling which helped and I got compliments, but I know a good cake and this just isnt it.
