1st Anniversary!
About this Cook
I'm recently married and also recently graduated from college (Yeah!) so I'm starting to have more free time to try out all the awesome recipes I have found here over the last couple of years!
My favorite things to cook
Anything really that my family enjoys. For some reason, people think of me as the dessert specialist so I am always asked to bring pies, cakes, cookies, etc. to family functions
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays with my mom learning all her secrets because she never followed a recipe (and now neither do I) and she also had all of her favorite ones stored in her head rather than a recipe box!
My cooking triumphs
I Love to take a recipe and modify it according to my tastes. If I do that with one I find on I always make sure to say so in the review. I don't think it's fair to judge a recipe harshly if it has been changed!
My cooking tragedies
I haven't had any tragedies yet, but I'm sure there will come a day when I update this section!

Never met anybody who didn't love these! FYI: Rolos are "Chocolate covered caramel candy" :o)

Chocolate Eclair Dessert
Awesome! Such simple ingredients turn into a delicious dessert. To take it up a notch, you really need to make your own chocolate sauce for the topping instead of using canned frosting. Mix 1/3 cup cocoa, 1/4 cup of milk and 1 cup sugar in sauce pan. Bring to full boil, stirring frequently. Boil for one minute, remove from heat and add 1 tsp vanilla and stick of butter. Allow to cool a few minutes before pouring over top layer of graham crackers. Note: I've also halved this recipe in 9x9 pan with good results. You'll need closer to three packages of graham crackers if you make the full recipe.

Country Apple Dumplings
So yummy! I'm really glad I finally tried this recipe. I melted the butter in the microwave then mixed in the sugar and 1 tsp. of vanilla. I used more cinnamon too, can't have too much when it's paired with apples!! Smells heavenly when baking and is awesome served with vanilla ice cream while still warm from the oven. FYI: I only had Sprite for the carbonated beverage so not sure how much of a difference that made, but I'm sure it's good either way.
