About this Cook
I'm a full time student, work full time, and am constantly challenged to please my husband and 2 little kids. I hate to cook but love to bake!
My favorite things to cook
I can typically pull off a pretty decent dinner if I find a helpful recipe that is easy to toss together and throw in the oven. In fact- then at least I can pretend to be baking!
My cooking triumphs
Cooking- no! Baking- YES! My biggest triumph was when I mastered rolled fondant! The sky's the limit for cake creations!
My cooking tragedies
Pyrex should really provide a warning: LIDS ARE NOT OVEN SAFE! ...enough said!

Angel Food Cake III
The final product is a wonderful, fluffy cake that is just sweet enough to satisfy a carb craving. I followed the recipe EXACTLY and baked in a bundt pan. After all, modifications would not lend to a true review of the original. I cracked all my eggs then whipped the vanilla, cream of tartar, and salt into the egg whites. I started at about medium speed then cranked it up as high as it would go for a good 15 minutes. Also- Loved the wine bottle suggestion! Works Great! Three tips for the novice: 1) NO YOLKS! not even a drop! 2) whip it! whip it good! -or at least 5 minutes past the point you think you're done 3) dust your bundt pan with a light coat of cake flour, but DO NOT grease the pan... Enjoy!
