About this Cook
I am a country girl that moved to the city and now I have moved half way around the world. I love adventure and that includes the foods I like to eat. I will try anything once, it is the second time that I might tell you no.
My favorite things to cook
Anything. New and exotic, comfy and cozy. Whatever the mood calls for.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There are so many. We are working on a family cooking blog just to keep everyone up to date on our favorites and to help preserve those things we can't live without that Grandma used to make.
My cooking triumphs
My cooking tragedies
They usually involve salt.

Four Egg Yellow Cake
Wonderful basic cake. Lovely crumb delicate flavor. I substituted buttermilk for the milk. I put it in the fridge for a few hours, the batter was thicker but after they baked it was lighter and puffed up higher. I also made cupcakes. Added orange zest and a little orange juice and then frosted it with chocolate. Amazing. My husband doesn't like frosting and loves these little cakes just plain.

Chocolate Crinkles II
Chocolatey goodness and so pretty. I love bit size cookies that satisfy. Of course the whole plate was gone in a few hours.

Basic Brownies
These are perfect! I have been looking for a good recipe since I lost my favorite one in a move. I keep the "basic cookie mix made" and they only take 5 minutes to mix and 25 minutes to bake. 30 minutes and you are done and they are the perfect texture and so chocolaty.
