About this Cook
I graduated Wolfcreek Job Corps in Oregon when I was 17 years old. I graduated as head baker and received my culinary arts degree. I have been cooking all sorts of food since I was about 12 years old and it has come natural to me since then. I like to create and try new things everytime I make a recipe.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook has got to be desserts. Not because I always enjoy eating sweets but because I believe desserts are the one food that you can be most creative with and just about any food tastes good as a dessert.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have any tradtions but I am trying to make some.
My cooking triumphs
The only thing I can think of is my peanut butter cookies. Not a single person who has tried them ever said anything bad about them. I created the recipe one day when I couldn't find the perfect peanut butter recipe anywhere.
My cooking tragedies
Other than burning a few things by accident because I forgot I was cooking I don't think to many bad things has happened to me while I was cooking.

Best Egg Rolls
I am giving this 4 stars instead of 5 simply because it sounded just a bit to blan for me. I changed the recipe to my liking but cannot rate this recipe for my creation. This recipe however is a great starting point for those who have never made egg rolls before.

Plum Jam
Hello everyone, I am the submitter of this recipe. I just wanted to make a little note, depending on how fresh your plums are is what determines the amount of sugar you need. As they ripen more they tend to lose some of their sweetness, therefore needing more sugar. I live in a small part of Alaska & we tend to get fruit that is near the end of its shelf life. For fresh plums I would suggest adding only 6- 6 1/2 cups of sugar. Thanks & enjoy!

Simple White Cake
It was tough coming up with the perfect review for this recipe. I have been searching everywhere for the perfect white cake recipe. This recipe has a YUMMY taste & really does remind you of a sugar cookie, however the appearance just is not appealing to me. They didn't necessarily fall, but they dont keep their shape once out of the oven. I am a cupcake expert and when using this recipe I was hoping for a puffy cupcake, didnt happen though. Despite trying 4 variations to make them rise, i just couldnt do it. If you will be covering it with lots of frosting then this is a good recipe, if you care about appearance then it doesnt work out so well. My advice for that perfect cupcake, use the recipe on this site for crazy chocolate cake, just do not add the cocoa and add more vanilla oh and use about another 1/4 cup of flour to make up for the baking cocoa. I also added a little almond extract for flavor.
