About this Cook
I love to cook, probably because I love to eat. Cooking on the weekends is a big hobby of mine, and that's when I have the most time to experiment with new recipes and flavors.
My favorite things to cook
Wow, everything! Baking is great--breads, cakes, extravagant desserts. I also really enjoy exotic foods, although they don't always turn out very good. I love expanding my food horizons.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Christmas are the best, because we all visit my grandmother, who makes the most excellent cookies and pies. I remember making apple pie with her as a little girl, and actually picking the apples from her tree in the front yard.
My cooking triumphs
I've made some good stuff. Most of the time, my best meals are creatively thrown together, and I don't measure any ingredients. But when I try to replicate the meal, I'm not always as successful the second time around.
My cooking tragedies
Oh, there have been a few. Nothing memorable..

Chocolate Surprise Cupcakes
Excellent cupcakes! Did not change a thing, and definitely didn't need any icing. Strange thing is.. these tasted just ok out of the oven, but after sitting for about 5 hours were elevated to spectacular status! Thanks for the great recipe--I will make these again!

Chocolate Cornstarch Pudding
Delicious! I added 3 "heaping" tablespoons of cocoa, used 2% milk, and cut the cornstarch in half. Still made a rich and very excellent pudding. Now I never have to buy pudding mix again, thank you!

The Best Banana Bread
Very good recipe for banana bread. Like some other reviewers, I added 1 tsp vanilla extract, 1 tsp cinnamon, and a pinch of salt. Lowered the cooking time to about 50 minutes, and it turned out great. Thanks!
