About this Cook
Wife for 10 years & counting; mother to 5.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking desserts and making up new dinner recipes. However, I rarely write down what I'm doing, so I often can't replicate a dish that my family really enjoys.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All of our family gatherings involved food! I learned from my mother and paternal grandmother. My mother is a "must follow the recipe exactly" type and my grandmother is a "throw in this and that" type. I tend to favor my grandmother's style, but I'm glad my mother taught me the basics.
My cooking triumphs
One of my greatest recipes is Chocolate Raspberry Angel Food Cake with Fudgey Raspberry Frosting (recipe not posted) which I created as a teenager, which I created on a whim, just hours before guests were due to arrive. Magnificent, although much more decadent than angel cakes usually are!
My cooking tragedies
Hmmm...I remember my tragedies b/c that's how I learn best. ;o) No one should be afraid to experiment, regardless if the results are disastrous! The worst that can happen is that we make a mess and start over, now knowing what doesn't work.

Scrumptious Penuche Frosting
I would love to give this recipe 5 stars, but I altered it. I planned on using this recipe to frost a spice cake. After making the caramel and tasting it, I found it to be quite sweet. Adding 2 c. of confectioners' sugar would've made it inedible for my family. So rather than adding the powdered sugar to make icing, I instead used the caramel as a glaze over the spice cake. As a glaze, it was fantastic: not too stiff, not too runny, and not unbearably sweet.

Caramel Spice Cake
I cannot praise this cake enough! Spice cakes can have a tendency to be dry, but this is lovely and moist, not overly sweet or spicy. Instead of baking in two separate 9 in. pans, I baked the batter in a Bundt pan @ 325 for just over an hour. I did not use the glaze recipe posted here.

Billy's Favorite Gingerbread Spiced Coffee Syrup
I'll preface this review by saying I didn't make it exactly; I used ground spices instead of whole, brown sugar instead of white, and omitted the honey. I intend on making the syrup as published in the next few months to give as Christmas gifts (yes, it's THAT good!), but using ground spices & brown sugar serves our purposes well. We use this as a pancake/waffle syrup or to top fresh fruit. I made this on a whim one morning, & my family & guests couldn't stop raving...or eating until every drop was gone!
