About this Cook
I was born in St. Joseph, Missouri and raised in Phoenix, AZ. I moved to England for 3 years right out of High School. I had no money and no parents to cook for me so I was forced to start cooking for myself if I wanted to eat anything other than french fries (or chips as they are called in England). That's how my passion for cooking started and it has been growing stronger ever since.
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoying baking things and decorating cakes. I also enjoy making and trying new recipes for dinner.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always love around the holidays, coming into the house and smelling all those yummy and comforting foods cooking and seeing everyone gathered in the kitchen. I have countless memories of times like these.
My cooking triumphs
I think each time I make a meal or dessert that people enjoy eating is a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
Oh man I got a few of these. I once cooked a pumpkin pie without adding the sugar. My boyfriend ate a whole piece and didn't say a thing! (Now that's love.) My first attempt at making a grilled cheese sandwhich ended in a large clump of brunt bread and runny yet crunchy cheese. And I cannot cook rice to save my life, it never comes out nice and fluffy like it's supposed to.

French Egg and Bacon Sandwich
Delicious! And so easy too! I followed a friend’s suggestion and baked my bacon in the oven (slightly overlapping each piece so they don’t curl). Everything else I cooked on the griddle. Very very yummy! Thanks so much for sharing!

Brooke's Best Bombshell Brownies
These are delicious! Just what I want in a brownie, flaky on top, dense and fudgy in the middle. I added pecans and they were Heavenly! Thank you thank you thank you!

Milk Chocolate Pecan Pie
I've made this recipe for years and it's perfect each and every time. It's not too rich and I love the crunch the pecans get after baking in the oven. I wouldn't change a thing about this recipe, it's delicious!
