First Birthday Cake
About this Cook
Full-time student, full-time mom, full-time wife, part-time where do I have time to cook? I'm always looking for relatively quick recipes, but nothing bland!
My favorite things to cook
Anything with loads of flavor, and using freshest herbs and veg.
My cooking triumphs
My son's first birthday cake. I never made a birthday cake before and I got so many compliments. I even designed it myself!
My cooking tragedies
when I was 11 I tried to make a blueberry pie. I used fresh-picked blueberries that weren't too sweet. Plus I rolled the crust way too thick. It came out like a terrible blueberry topped cake...and my family still never lets me forget it.

Mini Cheesecakes I
I adapted this recipe since I'm on the South Beach Diet. I used ground pecans instead of crust. And Splenda instead of sugar. Came out delicious! This is a very versatile recipe. (I made 1/2 the batch normal, 1/4 low carb, and I even made a soy version for my dairy-allergic daughter)!

New Orleans Chocolate Bourbon Pecan Pie
This was a huge hit at my Thanskgiving dinner and was the first pie to be finished. I found myself licking the pie-server afterwards because I hardly got any! Its tough being the hostess.

Slow Cooker Stuffing
I have played around with this recipe a few times - since I am making it for Rosh Hashana I added some chopped Granny Smith apples in place of the celery and through in some pecans. In the past I have added pine nuts or roasted chestnuts - both of which add some interesting flavor.

Rhubarb adds its tangy flavor to everything from salsa to lemonade. Don't forget the pie.
