About this Cook
I am a professional cake decorator, and at home I like trying new recipes using basic ingredients. I rarely follow a recipe; instead I combine my own ingredients, sauces, and spices.
My favorite things to cook
Kielbasa with fried potatoes, lasagna, baked chicken with ranch potatoes, cheesy breakfast casserole, chicken fettuccine alfredo.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom always made lots of Christmas candies! I've continued the tradition with my own family, making creamy fudge, mounds, peanut butter bars, cherry mash bars, mint crisps, etc.
My cooking triumphs
Strawberry tortes! Technically this isn't really cooking, it's cake decorating, but I love making them. I make 4 thin layers of chocolate cake with strawberry filling, chocolate whipped icing, a wall around the back of the cake made from chocolate almond bark, and chocolate-dipped strawberries with other chocolate embellishments. Another favorite is a bavarian filling with chocolate malt balls cascading down the front.
My cooking tragedies
Burnt cookies :( My oven just doesn't like me.

Honey Nut Granola
This was very tasty, the only part of it I didn't really care for was the amount of sunflower seeds in it.

Gaye's Microwave Fudge
Excellent recipe! Smooth, creamy fudge in less than 15 minutes, with only 5 ingredients? I'm sold! I was having a major chocolate craving and started looking for a recipe based on the ingredients I had on hand. This fit the bill perfectly! Next time I get a chocolate craving I want to try this recipe with a couple of drops of mint extract like I use in my coffee.

Pumpkin Bars I
I made a half batch for my family, and it was quite good, although not really what I expected. I was expecting a somewhat gooey bar, and this was very cake-like.
