My husband and me
About this Cook
I am newly married and also a medical student which tend to keep me very busy. However, I love to cook when I have the time. I started cooking for me family when I was around 12 or 13 and spent my summers during college working as a line cook and baker in a bakery near my hometown. I usually don't follow a recipe exactly but I like to look at them to get ideas.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make just about anything but especially things like cookies and cakes which allow to get a little creative and decorate as well. For everyday recipes I am always trying to make things healthier by reducing the fat or sugar content.
My cooking tragedies
I once used baking soda in donuts instead of baking powder. Those things could have broken a window.

Tater Tot Casserole III
This recipe calls for too much milk. It made the casserole bland and runny. I think cutting it down to 1/2 or 3/4 of a cup of milk would make it much better.

Slow Cooker Clam Chowder
I made this recipe twice. The first time the milk curdled in the crock pot when I didn't stir it. The second time I was home and stirred it every 2 hours or so. It did not curdled, but it came out with an odd brown color and a film over the top (I'm assuming from the bacon grease). It was edible the second time but I probably won't make it again.

Caramel Apple Bars II
I made these to bring to church for coffee hour and everyone raved about them. I made them exactly as the recipe states except I used pecans instead of walnuts. They are very messy (especially the inner pieces) so be sure to bring lots of napkins!
