About this Cook
I am a 28 year old wife, stay at home mother of 2, sister to 11. I grew up in a bakery and learned to bake and cook from both my parents. I am proud to be of Dutch descent, and I love everything food.
My favorite things to cook
Anything interesting.
My cooking tragedies
When I was about 16 I made a pumpkin cheesecake. I made it with fresh pumpkin and it was too soft. 12 years later I still get comments from my brothers about the dog barf I made. :) 5 stars for taste, negative stars for appearance.

Pastry Cream for Pies
I used less sugar as per comments and used a bit less vanilla, and subbed cornstarch for the flour (what I had). I also used a different technique. I mixed my starch and sugar and added the milk, brought it to a boil to thicken it, mixed in a bit with the yolks and added all back to pan and cooked for another minute, adding the butter and vanilla after removing from heat. I'm using it as a filling for Boston Cream Pie.

Hester's Red Velvet Cake Icing
I used rice milk, cooked 1/4 cup sugar with the milk and flour and added 1/4 t salt and 3 T cocoa for an amazing chocolate icing.
