About this Cook
I love to eat. Seriously. I am a "foodie". Have been all my life. Unfortunately I am not the best or most skilled cooker/baker. So I am always in need of a recipe. You know there are cooks out there who just have a certain intuition or instinct to put 1/2 a TB rather than 1/2 a teaspoon? I am not one of them. I wish I knew what the difference is between baking soda and baking powder. Alas, I have to guide me along the way! ;-)
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Vietnamese. Rice paper rolls. Lemon grass. Pho..... so many memories. Yum in my tum.
My cooking triumphs
Lemon squares. Period.
My cooking tragedies
Sugar cookies. Gross.

Cream Cheese Sugar Cookies
A+ Recipe! The best recipe on this site by far. BUT one note though: DO NOT ADD ANY ALMOND EXTRACT! Just vanilla extract.

Lemon Sauce I
I added twice the amt of nutmeg and twice the amt of butter... turned out great. But note that you have to cook down the water and sugar mix quite a bit to the consistency you want... will take time. Thanks

Favorite Old Fashioned Gingerbread
A-. Recipe is good as is, however I baked in a bundt cake pan and 40 mins was sufficient. Any more time and it would've been burnt. Thanks
