About this Cook
I love to cook for people that I love and care about. I have just recently (in the past 6 months or so) really gotten into cooking. I'm sure that I would have sooner, but I wasn't able to until now. I think that my skills have improved immensely. I was in a head-on car crash, that limited my physical abilities for a few months. I really couldn't do much but go online, or cook. So cooking kept me busy and made me feel like I was helping around the house when I really couldn't do much else (i.e. cleaning).
My favorite things to cook
Everything! I love cooking and eating new things! I will try almost anything once!
My favorite family cooking traditions
All of them. My family is full of amazing cooks. But I am still open to trying other people's traditions, hence my subscription to this website!
My cooking triumphs
Homemade spaghetti and meatballs (the one that I reviewed).
My cooking tragedies
My friend and I tried making a blackberry pie one time without using a recipe when we were young teenagers, and it didn't taste too bad but looked like a disaster.

Quick Yeast Rolls
This is my first time making rolls from scratch... I followed the recipe exactly, and they turned out wonderful! My fiance and I both tried one as soon as they came out of the oven, and had the rest with dinner... I'm in the process of making another batch now... My fiance asked if I would make more to have with honey tomorrow for breakfast.... I love how simple this recipe is, and how versatile these rolls can be... We plan to try some with italian seasoning and garlic powder sometime as well! Thank you for sharing your family recipe!

Awesome! This was my first time making divinity, and after hearing how finicky the recipe can be I was a bit worried. But it turned out just right! I used the hard ball method to gage the temperature, and I beat the egg whites for about 15 mins.

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
Wonderful cookies! I've already made one normal batch, and it lasted less than 24 hours! So tonight I'm making a double batch and hoping that it will last a bit longer lol! I took the advice of others and flattened the cookies throuroughly. I also used orange juice instead of water. Best ginger cookies ever, and they can easily be made smaller for ginger snaps.
