Hello Fellow Bakers/Cooks/Eaters, I'm so excited right now. I just came up with a "winner" recipe! That is, if you're a fan of Snickers candy bars. I certainly am, which is part of the reason I created this recipe! It starts with a peanut butter cookie crust, then moves on to a gooey,… MORE

I'm sorry that I've been absent recently. Life seems to have caught up with me and I'm usually really busy! However, I have not forgotten about you! And I've still been doing plenty of baking, especially with pumpkin and other fall flavors! I'm so loving it! I've made: Apple Cranberry… MORE

Okay, it's not really a stupid cake but that made for an interesting tune to sing while I spent like, 2 and a half hours icing the cake. Anyway, the "stupid cake" is a 3 layer, lemon blueberry cake. Our family was away for my moms birthday and I'd promised I'd make her cake when we… MORE

The weather is getting chilly now, which means slaving over a hot oven and/or stove isn't as miserable, therefore, more fun! Not that I thought it was miserable in the summer, just hot. Let it be known, cooking and baking is NEVER a chore for me! :-) an inconvenience, maybe... a chore, no.… MORE

Lots of things have been happening in our kitchen lately! On Saturday we were thinking of having people over on Sunday, and so we were wondering what we could prepare in advance in case we were to have guests. I made a chicken noodle soup first, using whatever I could find to throw in… MORE

The cupcakes turned out very nicely thanks to the wonderful recipe for "Simple White Cake" found here on allrecipes. However, I didn't follow a recipe for icing, therefore, it came out flat, and not proffessional at all. I was not amused, but then my mom helped me make it fluffy and… MORE

Well, I bet ya can't guess what's baking today! That's right, brownies. (How'd you know?) I'm trying to perfect a recipe to enter into the fair. And so I'm using an excellent brownie recipe as a guideline, and changing it up a bit. Today is my first try at this, and I'm making the recipe… MORE

Well, yesterday morning I wanted something to do so I made some Cinnamon Hazelnut Biscotti, this recipe was good but kind of crumbly for me, so next time I might try a different recipe and just add cinnamon if I have to. I topped it by drizzling with white chocolate mixed with more cinnamon… MORE

Yesterday I got to cook a good bit! I first made a pasta salad differently than I usually do, by mixing cooked and cooled shell pasta with ham cubes, cheddar cheese cubes, and peas. Then I poured a bottle of ranch dressing over that, then after the dressing had soaked in, I ended up coating… MORE

About Me
I'm a teenage chef in training.I love to cook, I make dinner for the family often, but more than anything, I LOVE baking! Biscotti, especially, since this would be a big part of my biggest dream, which is: owning my own cute little cafe' someday! I love visiting cafe's, I love the atmosphere, the full bakery case, and especially frozen coffee drinks! Running my very own just seems so spectacular to me! However, I'm keeping my eyes wide open and staying focused on learning in all the culinary areas, even the health aspect of it! Food is a passion for me, every day I wake up and think "so what can I make today?" :)
My favorite things to cook
Pretty much anything! I'm always ready to try something new, because I just want to know how to do it and be capable of it and just because I enjoy doing anything culinary, from baking to cooking to candy making, and anywhere in between!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love baking Christmas cookies every year, also we go up to a cabin for a week every year and MUST have my moms famous lasagna, which she and I now make together.
My cooking triumphs
There have been a few... like one time I made these pretty cool mini pumpkin cheesecakes with pecans, they were pretty!
My cooking tragedies
I don't know how I do it, but whipping cream is always either a big success or a brutal failure for me, which always makes me nervous when I see it in recipes! Maybe some day I'll learn the art of whipping cream... that would be nice...
