About this Cook
I'm 23 and in the Air Force. I'm an army brat and grew up all over and traveled the world. I have a 22 month old son.
My favorite things to cook
Due to the fact that I've been exposed to all sorts of cultures and foods I love to try to re-create some of those foods that arent in resturants here in the US.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas are big cooking holidays for my family and are a mix of German and American cuisine

Decadent Bars
I LOVE this recipe. Everytime I go home on leave, my family asks me to make it. Also, its a HUGE hit at potlucks. The only thing I changed was a added a splash of almond extract and a splash of vanilla extract. Like one of the other reviewers mentioned, I too made this recipe without shortening the first few times. I just put half butter and half vegetable oil. It worked like a charm and it was a little easier to mix than plain shortening alone.

Waffles make Sunday mornings special, but they're great for lunch and dinner, too.
