About this Cook
I learned to cook from my father who did 90% of the cooking at our house when I was young. He loved to cook and bake and I know that is who I got my love of cooking from.

My cooking tragedies
The night before a Thanksgiving dinner years ago I made a beautiful pumpkin cheesecake. I carried it to the refrigerator. Holding it in one hand I opened the refrigerator door. The next thing I knew it was upside down on the kitchen floor!. I must have stood there for 3 minutes staring at it wanting to cry. I ran to the store and made another one opening the fridge door BEFORE putting it inside.

Chocolate Truffle Cookies
Wow! These are to die for! If you are not a richchocolate fan, these are not for you. They are a mess to make as they get your hands pretty dirty but WELL worth it! 9 minutes was the perfect baking time. Make sure to let them sit a few minutes before removing from the pans. For the people who thought they were dry, you may have over-baked them. Mine were still soft in the middle the next day without putting them in a container.

Butterfinger Chunkies
I made these yesterday using about 10 bars from a fun size bag of Butterfingers. These are absolutely delicious. They do come out a bit flat so don't expect a fat cookie. I let them rest on the sheet about 5 minutes and ours all came off perfectly. Now that halloween is coming and candy is going on sale, I will be stocking up on Butterfingers!

Cinnamon Bread I
This was delicious! I did as others said and mixed the wet and dry separately then combined. I also double the topping and put half in the middle and half on top. Mine took closer to an hour to bake. At 50 minutes the middle was still not quite done. I want to make a note here that it makes a big difference in the pan you use. I made this twice, first time in a shiny pan and the next in a darker. The shiny pan took longer to bake and was much moister inside. The darker pan seemed to get it very brown and I could have baked it less time than the other.
