About this Cook
I just recently found out that I really enjoy cooking! I never really helped my mom in the kitchen, she wasn't much of a cook. So I'm really not sure where it came from but I love it. I have fantasies of my own personal bake sale I'd call it "Heather's Broke @$$ Bake Sale" I'm generally broke.
My favorite things to cook
Spaghetti Carbonara, Watergate Salad (awesome name)& baking of all shapes and sizes. I ALWAYS change recipes. I'm not entirely sure why. Sometimes I do weird hybrids and SOMETIMES they actually pan out. (Pear Custard Turnovers)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My dad makes a mad hot buttered rum. Most everything else from him was Hamburger Helper. From my mom, zip. My aunt taught me how to make scrambled eggs in the microwave.
My cooking triumphs
Most everything I make gets rave reviews from my roommates. My favorite I guess would be my pumpkin cookies. I totally pulled that one out of my butt.
My cooking tragedies
Usually involves burnination. Also gluten free flour. And the tragic "watermelon cupcakes" can not be forgotten.

Glazed Nuts
I tripled the recipe and used 1.5 lb walnuts and 1.5 lb Pecans. I love Pecans but even in bulk the 1.5 lbs cost me like $7 ouch. Kept everything the same but added 3 tea salt (1 tea/batch) to bring out the flavor. Sweet/salty is amazing. I gave these out for Christmas because I have some anti-junkfood relatives, these flew right under their radar ha ha. I had to keep in mind the people that might be allergic so I made puppy chow and Peppermint bark popcorn also. All good for making in bulk.

Puppy Chow
I prefer Chex(R) Muddy Buddies(R) recipe to this recipe because it uses butter and vanilla, both add nice flavor. Also, I used a microwave for melting.

Pumpkin Roll II
I made these for a Halloween bake sale this year but no one bought them haha. Maybe they were too expensive at $3 a slice but my roommate said she's pay that much for them lol. And now she will be eating most of them herself for free, lucky girl. I added 1/2 tsp nutmeg and allspice and 1/4 tsp ginger to give it more of a pumpkin pie taste. I used pecans instead of walnuts and like another reviewer recommended, I put the nuts in the frosting. Very yummy.
