About this Cook
Just discovered about 1 1/2 - 2 years ago that I love to cook, especially dessert. I absolutely love food, not so sure why it took me so long to start cooking!
My favorite things to cook
I love to make dessert, whether it's cookies, cakes, pies, bars, cupcakes, candies, etc. Especially if it's chocolate!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have such a small family that we don't have too many traditions, but I'm trying to create new ones and resurrect some oldies, such as baking birthday cakes for each person's birthday, making new dishes for the holidays, etc...
My cooking triumphs
Successfully made my first apple pie and tasted great! Next stop, carrot cake and tiramisu! Also learned how to make Chicken Tikki Masala to which my husband is truly grateful!
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at strawberry pie didn't turn out so well, lol. Second time is the charm though!

Chicken Tikka Masala
This recipe was so incredibly easy and fun to make and I highly recommend it! I only used about 2-3 teaspoons salt instead of the 7 or 8 that it called for and used half-and-half instead of the heavy cream. It turned out really good and really spicy!! I recommend those that like a more mild spice to their dish to maybe use 1/2 a jalepeno or cut back on the cayenne pepper. But this dish was great!

Fresh Strawberry Pie I
My pie came out runny and never set. I followed the recipe exactly and it still didn't come out right. Will try another recipe.

Pecan Pie III
This was the first pie I had ever made and it was very good! I made it for my Mom's b-day and she said it was the best pecan pie she had ever tasted! The pecans tasted wonderful and it wasn't too sweet. I did add 1/4 cup of butter and 1 tblspn flour and it turned out good, but next time I might omit those. I also had to bake it at least 10-15 minutes longer than the recipe said, but it could also be my oven. I highly recommend this recipe!

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
