About this Cook
I love cooking! It is one of the few things I can do to relax after a long day at work. The kitchen is my domain and the stove is my happy place. I rarely let me my husband help, I prefer him to be my taster! Cooking is my passion and I am slowly learning more and more about it!
My favorite things to cook
Anything sweet! I love baking in general. I also like to find ways to dress up boneless skinless chicken breasts. It's always a challenge to find fun new spices and tastes for them. They are like a blank canvas is to an artist, just waiting for their paint (spices).
My cooking triumphs
Flourless chocolate cake, pie crust, and most of all a delicious brown gravy that looked and tasted great!
My cooking tragedies
The first time I made cherry cobbler I used Jiffy mix and did not know what I was doing. It turned out to be like biscuit dough balls on cherry pie filling…it was yucky! I have since mastered cobbler. It was funny though serving that to my best friend!

Sweet Potato Casserole II
I made this for Thanksgiving. I omitted the orange juice per other reader's suggestions and I forgot to put the butter into the potatoes so I put it on top of the potatoes, which was a mistake! It didn't blend in. However, my family LOVED it and they were raving over it all night. Will be making this again for sure!

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies IV
I make this as one big cookie and give it to my mother-in-law for her birthday every year. She certainly doesn't share, seriously she eats the entire thing. I like to add more white chocolate chips than the recipe calls for. This is buttery and tasty! Best cookie I've ever made.

Mini Cheesecakes
I liked these. They were super easy to make and baked beautifully. I bought pre-made mini graham cracker crusts for mine and they turned out wonderfully. I'll definitely be making these again!
