About this Cook
I'm just a girl that craves to create in as many ways as she possibly can :) Cooking is the only way that's fun both while you're making it and after, though!
My favorite things to cook
I especially love to bake and do desserts, but it's fun and tasty to try my hand at asian inspired dishes, as well. I'm vegetarian, so I get the challenge of doing all this without meat :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
Giant family potlucks on warm summer days always bring fond memories. Just recently, I've been able to start bring something all my own, and it's lots of fun when everyone tells me how great my cooking is.
My cooking triumphs
The best thing I've done with my cooking is help my husband learn to cook on his own, too :) Nothing's better than that.
My cooking tragedies
It was a week before our wedding, and I had the menu all planned out and all the ingredients ready for me to cook them up. I had even planned on making the wedding cake all on my own. And then, right when I needed it, my oven stopped working and we couldn't get a new one to our house for another week! Thankfully I got the cake and all the food cooked, thanks to my future mother-in-law. But it was a pretty close shave!

Amish Meatloaf
I'm a vegetarian, so I can't vouch for this recipe myself, but my hubby loved it. I followed the suggestions made, to cut the sugar and ketchup in half and to halve the sauce. He said it was very good.

Quick and Almost-Professional Buttercream Icing
Very good! I think I beat my frosting too long because it has lots of large bubbles in it, but a quick beating with a wooden spoon solves that problem.

Candy Ice Cream
I decided to heed the advice of the other commenters and simply left out the sugar all together. I must have been tired when I made this, because I accidentally used an 8 oz tub of cool whip and totally forgot to put in the vanilla or candy bits! But nevertheless, it has come out very tasty. It's not super soft, but it's also not going to bend your spoon when you scoop it out. And it's really rich and delicious! Next time I'm going to try adding peanut butter. I love this recipe mostly because it uses very simple ingredients that I think most of us have on hand!
