About this Cook
I love, love, love to cook! I love feeding people! I especially love to bake but I'm not big on sweets so I bake for others, they don't complain ; P
My favorite things to cook
Chicken In Basil Cream Sauce, Goulash (my family's take on it anyway), Pancakes, Mashed Potatoes, and as for baking, Pumpkin Rolls, cookies (sugar & snickerdoodle), Spice Cake Cupcakes, Apple Pie and Fruit Tarts!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Butter and Salt LOL
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving Pumpkin Rolls! Super hard but they've turned out great! I also felt pretty triumphant when I had guests over for dinner, after everyone agreeing they'd love some cookies for desert they were shocked when I pulled out the flour and they realized I didn't have premade cookie dough.
My cooking tragedies
When I first started cooking I was making a seafood breakfast quiche from a recipe from Allrecipes and I did not realize that the pie crust it called for was different from the graham cracker pie crust you use in fruit pies.... It was super disgusting. Just think eggs with graham crackers bleh!

Pumpkin Roll with Toffee Cream Filling and Caramel Sauce
I made this Pumpkin Roll and another from this website side by side trying to decide which to bring to Thanksgiving this year, this one won hands down. It was so delicious and the filling is light and fluffy, not too sweet. I think next time I'll add pumpkin spice to the mix, possibly to the filling just to give it a little extra and I think I'll make about 1/3 more filling. I would just say to be sure to get the caramel they say in the recipe, I could not find it anywhere so I just bought caramel candies and melted them down, such a pain, hardened so fast I couldn't even drizzle before it cooled. I love the toffee as a change of texture in the dish. Also I only waiting 20mins with the cake wrapped in the damp dish towel (That's the length of time on the other recipe) and it was still pretty warm when I unrolled it, didn't crack anywhere! I didn't force it, just unrolled it enough to get the filling in there and quickly but carefully rolled it back up before it cooled. So delicious and it looks fantastic!!!

Magic Spice Cake
I have made this in both cake form and as cupcakes. It was a huge hit at my boss' birthday party made exactly as the recipe says but I do make some changes now. I agree with a lot of the posts here that say it's not spiced enough. I add quite a bit more of the spices in the recipe as well as allspice. I can't say how much I use because I just add until it looks spiced enough. This is now my boyfriends favorite cake; I make it for his birthday every year in cupcake form. Not too sure why people are admitting to altering the recipe completely and then giving a low rating saying it didn't turn out well... Just follow the recipe to the letter the 1st time around. You wont be disappointed. I like it with and without frosting. I also like to sprinkle some cinnamon on top of the icing as well as mixing some of the spices into the icing. It screams I'm a spice cake!
