About this Cook
I never used to cook until I got to college and met my now husband. When we were dating he would cook dinners all the time and I thought that was great because I was living on string cheese and box pizzas. He started teaching me to cook, and now that we've been married a year and a half, I do almost all the cooking. I love it!
My favorite things to cook
I have a lot of fun making dinner every night. It's probably my favorite part of the day. I like food! It's so cool to me to start out with all these seperate ingredients and put them together in just the right way and come out with something new. I like trying new recipes and feeling confident enough to tweak them and make them my own.
My cooking triumphs
Dinner rolls. I used to be so scared of making them, but now they are one of my favorite things to make because I know what I'm doing and they turn out great and my husband and I can't stop eating them. Also, anything that I've never tried before that turns out great, my latest triumphs being chili, stew, and white chocolate chip macadamia nut cookies.
My cooking tragedies
Fortunately I haven't completely bombed anything yet (knock on wood) but I'm really hard on myself when something isn't as good as I was expecting. The last few times that happened was with banana bread, oatmeal cookies, and swedish meatballs. I thought the meatballs were really hard because you can't really taste them as you're making them, you have to wait until they're cooked. I guess I'll just have to keep making them to get them just right.

Vegan Basic Vanilla Cake
It worked. I needed an egg-free white cake and so I tried this, the only substitute I made was using cow's milk cuz I didn't have soy. My daughter, my husband, and I all thought it tasted like corn muffins. I'm not quite sure why, it doesn't have any corn in it at all. Fortunately (most of) the kids at the birthday party ate them anyway. I probably won't make it again though.

Apple Strudel Muffins
Fantastic! Cut the sugar down to 1/3 cup white and 1/3 cup brown, cut the butter to 6 TBLS, used one medium apple grated and one medium apple chopped, and totally left off the struesel topping, and they are still fantastic! I'll definitely be making these again and again.
