About this Cook
I am young professional living and working in the Nation's Capital. I have always had a love for baking and have recently really got into cooking -- so we'll see where I go from here.
My favorite things to cook
I am a master of sweets. I hand decorate birthday cakes for family and friends. I also make delicious cupcakes, pies, cookies, sugar-coated pecans, pavlova... the list goes on. Aside from desserts I love quick and easy things, such as Chicken Quesadillas with Mild sauce from Taco Bell, Mashed Potatoes with butter, salt and some dill, Grilled Cheese Sandwiches with pickles on the side, Pancakes, and Cinnamon French Toast
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade Pierogi with sour cream (that I have yet to learn how to make), Homemade Pies (pumpkin, pecan, apple, blueberry, lemon meringue, etc.), Hand Decorated Gingerbread Men at Christmas
My cooking triumphs
I seem to be good with strawberries... topping pavlovas, making shortcakes, dipping them in chocolate... that sort of stuff always goes over well.
My cooking tragedies
Growing up, I once added the cheese mix in my Kraft Mac and Cheese before straining the water. My friend and I called it Macaroni Soup. I also accidentally burn popcorn a lot.

Detroit Hot Honey Wings
Loved this recipes! I used orange blossom honey and was very generous. I used garlic powder and some cayenne pepper to season, and let the wings sit for 30 minutes. Then brushed with honey and into a 425 degree oven on a nonstick foil lined baking pan. After 20 minutes I flipped the wings and added more honey. After 20 more minutes I flipped again and coated with the hot sauce/butter/honey mixture and cooked for 5-10 more minutes. I probably could have used more heat, but these were really tasty!

Diane's Colcannon
I was trying to find recipes that incorporated cabbage. This was definitely a delicious winner! I added two more slices of bacon and then seasoned the cabbage and onion with garlic salt while sautéing.

Butterscotch Potato Chip Cookies
These are tasty! I added 1 tsp of vanilla extra and 1/4 cup mini chocolate chips. I wish I doubled the crushed chips because I wanted them to come through more, but overall really good!
