About this Cook
I caught the cooking bug at age 9. My Mom got me a grill heated by a 100 watt light bulb, and was surprised by the variety of things I was able to cook on it. Been learning to cook ever since.
My favorite things to cook
Right now my favorite thing to do is bake.
My cooking triumphs
For a friends 30th birthday I made a Dragon cake. I used dry ice to make it breath smoke, and some well places glow sticks as it was presented to him in a bar. It was a bigger hit then the band that night.
My cooking tragedies
Eclairs, I have been trying to make a french Eclair, and thus far I still get lifeless sticks. I can get egg whites to rise for angle food cake, but cant make a decent eclare.

Luscious Lemon Snaps
This is a wonderful recipe, I wish i had read the reviews before I started. I ended up adding about a 1/4 cup of flour to get a batch of good full cookies, but well worth the time to tweek it. I love the flavor, I used 3 large wild lemons and the flavor was unbelievable.

Bagels I
I liked this a lot, it did remind me of New York bagels. I tried the work saving method of the bread machine, but was rewarded with more of a clean up, a yeast dough will stick to a non stick surface. I made an old favorite but hard to find salt bagel using course salt and they came out wonderful.

Brandy Flamed Peppercorn Steak
We found the flavor very overwhelming, but it is a good recipe. Next time I will use course black pepper to tone it down.
