About this Cook
I love to cook! Cooking is what I do when I am happy, when I am sad, when I am frustrated... it is my outlet for so many things. It is so exciting to see how my cooking skills are ever improving.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts... of course! I also love to cook vegetarian cuisine and bread-machine breads!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Oh gosh, where to start? My mom has made some of the best casseroles I have ever tasted. We always had casseroles. Some traditions that I have started are fresh bread whenever possible, homemade bagels, and homemade hummus.
My cooking triumphs
Cream puffs and homemade cinnamon rolls - both from this site!
My cooking tragedies
So many! Usually its because I dont read the recipe all the way through. Always read the recipe first!

Creme Anglaise I
I used 1/2 and 1/2 and it was great. No curdles and I didn't have to strain it!.

Outrageous Chocolate Chip Cookies
Not great. Good flavor but the dough was too crumbly and so were the cookies. They didn't spread at all, so I flattened the last 2 pans. Made exactly 36 cookies.

Absolutely Ultimate Marinade
Really good marinade. Used it on boneless, skinless chicken breast and marinated for about 8 hours then grilled. Didn't have green onions on hand so I used a few shakes on onion powder in place on the onions. Also, used apple cider vinegar in place of red wine vinegar because that is what I had on hand. My family said it was delicious and something that made chicken taste different than "just chicken".
