About this Cook
Born and raised in Wisconsin, but currently living in Indianapolis. I travel a lot for work, so when I'm home I like to bake tasty treats to take into the office and healthy dinners to balance out the not-so-healthy things I eat when I'm traveling.
My favorite things to cook
Baking cookies and bars are my favorite. Any dessert or breakfast pastry really. I also like to try quick and healthy seafood, chicken and pasta dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom has taught me that presentation is just as important as taste. So I have plenty of cute baskets, platters and napkins around.
My cooking triumphs
When I made popovers! I love popovers, but they still don't turn out 100% of the time.
My cooking tragedies
When I tried making petit fours for Valentine's Day. Ugh. Next time I'll try to stick to one cake, filling and frosting flavor.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Followed recipe exactly and put in freezer overnight. Perhaps this isn't a good dough to freeze, because these ended up flat and dry. Tried playing around with oven temperature, but no good.

Holiday Brie en Croute
Awesome! I used dried cherries, cherry preserves and sliced almonds. I used an 8oz. wheel of brie. Doing some research on Brie en Croute, I toasted the almonds in a pan with 2 TBLS salted butter and a TBLS of dijon mustard. I sliced the brie in half and put the preserves, cherries and toasted almonds between the two halves and left a little out to place on top of the brie as well. Since I was using a smaller wheel of brie, I trimmed the edges of the puff pastry a bit before I folded it over the top, sealed the edges with egg wash and flipped it over into a glass pie pan to bake (I used the puff pastry trimmings to make a bow on top). I baked it for the full time and let it sit for 45 minutes before serving - it was still gooey and warm. There was about 1/3 left and I place it in a tupperware container in the fridge and reheated it three days later in the microwave at 50% power - still tasted great!

Cranberry Orange Loaf
Lacking in orange flavor. A little dry and tough.
