About this Cook
I'm a cooking newbie, but nobody has complained about a single thing I've made... yet.
My favorite things to cook
Anything with chocolate, and mostly desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
open box, eat, repeat as neccessary.
My cooking triumphs
Dark Chocolate Orange Truffles White Chocolate Green Tea Truffles Tiramisu Truffles Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Truffles
My cooking tragedies
1) I made some chocolate cookies that melted together to make one giant cookie-sheet-sized cookie. 2) I tried to burn down the kitchen by spilling heavy cream on the burner.

Irish Cream Chocolate Cheesecake
I'm not a huge cheesecake fan, but this was easy to make, tasted great, and thanks to all the tips given, turned out perfect. I will be making this one again.

Seven Minute Frosting I
Took longer than seven minutes, but I'll take the blame for that one.

Deep Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cake
I loved this recipe. The only complaint I got was that the cake was a little dry. I would make this again, but maybe tone down the peppermint a little.
