About this Cook
To me cooking is a hobby. I cook not only to make good food, but to do something enjoyable. I DETEST cooking for the sake of cooking. i HATE making food from a box. I love to experiment and be challenged.
My favorite things to cook
anything NEW. some of my favorites; lasagna, BBQ meatballs, chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cream of onion and mushroom pork chops on christmas. Christmas cookies.
My cooking triumphs
making a cake from scratch! Perfecting "my" chili
My cooking tragedies
my first ever hamburger was black on the outside, bloody inside... i've learned since then- thank goodness.

Marble Cake I
This was my first EVER cake made from scratch, it turned out BEAUTIFUL! Since I was using a standard 9x13 cake pan I increased the recipe by half. For example, I used 3 cups of flour, 3 teaspoons baking powder, etc. The only thing I did differently was that I took other users advice and used additional 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup oil. Plus I added 1/2 a package of instant vanilla pudding and 1/2 cup extra milk. The cake evenly filled the pan to about 3 1/2 inches high baked and is EXCEPTIONALLY moist and flavorful. This is from now on going to be our family's standard birthday cake. Thanks for the GREAT recipe!
