About this Cook
I'm really new at cooking and just started mainly this past year. Which was really difficult as I lived in a dorm room. I am expanding my horizons and hopefully can move onto better more complicated cooking adventures!
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking entire meals for my boyfriend and myself. I really just love seeing everything come together as a whole. I too really like baking as even if it isn't perfect who doesn't love a cookie or piece of cake even if it is a little undercooked??
My cooking triumphs
I have been very successful in cooking cheesecakes and pecan pies. I made these for a bake sale and a friend of mine bought the cheesecake and insisted I brought one to our potluck the next week!
My cooking tragedies
My cooking tragedies began when I was young and they far outnumbered my successes which is why I never really picked up cooking while younger. One that sticks in my mind is reading 1 1/2 cups of flour as one half cup of flour.... which lead to a big burnt blob on a cookie sheet.

Quick Black Forest Cake
I think the summary of this cake hits it on the nose.....Easy, delicious, and moist! I couldn't find my almond extract and it was delicious so I can only imagine it would be better with the contrast of the nut flavor!

Cream Cheese Pound Cake III
I made this cake for out Preference Night for our sorority. Everyone raved about it and the new girls said they'd join just so they could have this cake again! I am more of a critic of my own cooking so I only gave this a 4 because I thought there was something missing, but I just can't put my finger on it.... but there was none left at the end for me to take home so that was a plus!

Sandy's Casserole
This was an incredibly easy dish.... I took one reviewers suggestion and put it in a crock pot.... I also didn't have any cheese so used velveeta insead.... added peas and used some half and half to alleviate the runniness some reviewers had encountered.... delicious and super duper easy.
