About this Cook
Growing up, I was the baker of the household, and have always enjoyed it. I have been married for almost a year, and am facing the challenge of cooking every day for my husband and his large appetite! I work in a wedding/prom dress store as well as in a camp kitchen, helping prepare meals for up to 500 people!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make all kinds of desserts, especially cookies, and eat them too!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every birthday, our tradition is to make Sunshine Cake, which is a form of Angel Food cake, but much better! It's one of our family's old recipes.
My cooking triumphs
Last halloween, after seeing a photo on Allrecipes, I made a pumpkin cake shaped like a pumpkin. Although the icing was a bit runny, it really looked like a pumpkin. I presented it to my family-in law, and they were wowed (it tasted great too). I am so glad for this site and all the new ideas!
My cooking tragedies
I have many - because I like to experiment. Once I made Ammonia Cookies. The entire house smelled like ammonia, and the cookies tasted like it too! Had to throw them out for fear of them being poisonous.

Zucchini Muffins
These are really doughy and dense, not a nice muffin texture at all. They are not sweet (which I liked) and bland. My kids liked them though.

Plum Flummery
I used these ingredients and did some of my own method. I took fresh plums and put them in boiling water for 3 minutes. Then I peeled, pitted and pureed them. I dissolved the gelatin in the hot plum water (for colour). Then continued following the recipe. I just folded in the thickened milk and it turned out great!

Royal Icing II
I added a tsp of cream of tartar, which helps to get air into the icing during whipping, and lets it dry faster once used.
