About this Cook
I study Art History, French, and Fashion. I am newly engaged and love to travel.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking. Particularly desserts. All kinds of cookies, brownies, cakes, muffins, you name it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Throwing like flavored or related foods in a bowl for dinner. Kind of like breakfast burrito meets Japanese rice bowl.
My cooking triumphs
I make some really good scrambled eggs. My crepes are quite nice too. I am a big breakfast person.
My cooking tragedies
I used to have a bad habit of adding too much liquid and having soup dishes more often than planned.

Whole Wheat Ginger Snaps
I gave a batch of these along with shortbread cookies to my in-laws for Christmas and we all loved them. These really snap, but then are also chewy. They do grow in size a lot, so DON'T try fancy cutter I did. :)

Shortbread Cookies II
These are delectable. Buttery and smooth, and don't leave you thirsty. Just wonderful. They also keep their shape really well! These are great if you want some CUTE shaped cookies too.

Mrs. Sigg's Snickerdoodles
These are so good. They have the perfect balance of flavors between the butter sugar and cinnamon. I rolled my dough balls in a "healthy" amount of sugar and cinnamon and had beautiful results. I hate snicker doodles that leave you wanting just a little more topping so this is a good way to fix that.
