About this Cook
I'm an artistic and adventerous person. Cooking/baking is a total art to me. I experimented a lot with recipes when I was younger, but have been getting more into cooking the past couple of years. Love cooking for holidays and throwing little parties with particular food themes.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking or making interesting desserts, I also love experimenting with sugar free & dairy free recipes. Love making healthy food and anything that I can make look really artistic.
My cooking tragedies
Oh man, I have disasters all the time. My food allergies tend to put me on a quest to make great tasting food that is free of most "everyday" ingredients, and to be honest, it's not the easiest thing to do. An actual experience, though, is when my neighbor-friend and I tried making our own recipe for muffins when we were probably 9. We tried making them into "angel-thumbprint muffins" using all sorts of jam flavors.. yeah, basically it turned into brown goo, tasting of burnt jolly ranchers. I think my dad made use of the gooey mess, so it wasn't a total waste . . .

German Chocolate Cake III
I didn't make the frosting (pecans are SO expensive, who knew?) but did make the cake. It was good, but for all the work.. I don't know. I wasn't super thrilled. Not too different from baking a simple cake-mix, but I'm sure the frosting really makes the cake, so maybe I'm not one to rate this. If I make it again I will def have to make the frosting recipe as well.

Cream Puffs
Mine didn't rise too much, but enough to fill. I also had no parchment paper so had to put them on slightly greased pans. The bottoms did burn, but I was convinced to still bring them to a family event. Sure enough, they were gone in an instant. Even with burnt bottoms! I was thrilled, but will definitely use parchment paper next time.

Award Winning Soft Chocolate Chip Cookies
I feel bad giving these only 2 stars, because I did make changes. I used "I can't believe it's not butter" and a brown sugar/splenda mix. Also, I used SUGAR-FREE + FAT-FREE pudding, which I wondered about.. not sure if that's what made these weird, but these are a strange texture. Soft in a gross way. Others ate these right up, but I had to alter my second batch by adding 1/2 cup peanut butter, more sugar, a pack of m&m's, and a bit of baking powder. These were supposed to be for other families, but they're just not good enough to give as gifts. I promise to make these to the T next time, and will change the rating if they're honestly good.
