About this Cook
I'm a single mom of one. I love to bake and cook! I love being outdoors; cooking over a campfire is definitely a challenge, but is fun and almost always turns out a great made-up meal. I like rollerblading, disc golf, sweedish metal music, technology, cooking from scratch, and healthy foods...most of the time.
My favorite things to cook
Grilled anything, cheesecakes (both ricotta and cream cheese), fudge, cakes (especially naturally sweetened), new cookie experiments, baked mac and cheese, turkey creations.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Meatless cooking. We grew up lacto-ovo vegetarian, but now I eat turkey, rarely chicken, and some types of fish.
My cooking triumphs
Mini ricotta cheesecakes, topped with a peach sauce whipped cream...all from scratch of course.
My cooking tragedies
Fudge that doesn't sit...two times in a row. Very frustrating!

Baked Oatmeal II
I made a few tweaks... used 3/4 cup vanilla yogurt & 1/4 cup milk, added fresh blueberries instead of the dried cranberries & used a cinnamon/clove/nutmeg mixture. It came out oh so perfect! Moist & fluffy! Next time I will use less sugar & more blueberries.

Creamy Rice Pudding
So easy! I used part heavy cream, brown medium grain rice, and cinnamon sticks. Turned out AMAZING! Thank you!

Pineapple Cobbler
This took forever to bake, a lot more than the 30 minutes it says. WAY too much butter!! I used between half a stick and 3/4 of a stick and it was too much, and I love my butter. The only thing I did different was add a light strudel topping and I used fresh pinapple cut into chunks. I wouldn't make this exact recipe again, but I would tweak it and make it again because the the flavor was delicious.
