About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. If it has marshmallows or whipped cream, I'll make it again and again!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Before Christmas, every single female in my family sets aside two days. We sit around a table, drink wine, and gossip... although the official purpose is to make chile rellenos and empanadas and tamales. We make a lot more gossip than food, though!
My cooking triumphs
I have a marshmallow/brownie recipe that I've been tweaking for years. At every potluck, my coworkers beg me to bring in my "world famous brownies" and the recipe. I don't cook very often, and I'm not very good at it when I do, so to me, this is a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Many years ago, I was baking fresh apple pies with my mom. I was in charge of mixing the filling, and for two batches in a row, I mixed up tsp and tbsp. I was so upset that my mom had to throw out two large batches of expensive ingredients.

Cranberry Wassail
DELICIOUS smell and taste, and a huge hit at my potluck. My oranges also disintegrated, but it tasted so good nobody seemed to mind a bit of pulp. Next time I will try simmering the oranges in cheesecloth so the pieces don't ruin the look of the wassail. I will be making this over and over again!

Football Cheese Ball
I followed the recipe exactly and agree that the taco seasoning was overpowering. The second time, I cut the seasoning from 6 tsp to 4 tsp and used a heaping cup of cheddar. I also added more Worcestershire sauce because my first football was albino! It was much better the second time, and I got compliments for presentation at a work potluck.
