About this Cook
I'm a 28 year old Credit Manager for a financial institution. Married and no Kiddos. Born and raised in Nebraska, both my husband and I consider ourselves pure Cornhuskers. We now live in Missouri where we enjoy the friends we've made but also miss our families and friends back home.

Holiday Rum Balls
Sinfully rich! So good! I used a 9 x 9 inch pan of stale Gluten Free brownies (Betty Crocker)... A 1/4 of which had already been eaten (Oops). I crumbled the brownies in a food processor and added a little more than 1/4C Rum... they were strong, but for the better! Four ounces of dark chocolate was not enough to coat these. I had some semi sweet chocolate chips on hand that I used to coat the remaining. Husband loved these... taking the rest to our family Christmases.

Pumpkin Cheesecake II
I've made this cheesecake twice... absolutely out of this world good! Nothing but great reviews from friends and family. I used gluten free graham crackers in the crustI left pie in the oven 2 hours after it had baked... once pie had cooled I used the maple pecan glaze from the recipe "Maple Pumpkin Cheesecake", however, I omitted the pecans b/c I had placed pecans on top of the cheesecake prior to baking.. I only made half of the glaze and drizzled it over the cheesecake. This has become my favorite fall dessert and I can't wait to make it again!

Stuffed Acorn Squash II
This was surprisingly very good. I prebaked the squash in the oven for 40 minutes at 375 degrees. Added mushrooms, canned tomatoes, and a bit of the following spices: Cayenne Pepper, Celery Seed, & Rosemary to the meat. Delicious!
