About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cakes and pies for birthdays and the holidays and cookies for my friends at school, I am definitely a dessert freak.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma and I make Christmas cookies every year and we also make Thanksgiving dinner together every year.
My cooking triumphs
My mom and I recently made cheesecake wiht success, I thought it would be hard, but it was fairly easy and came out perfect(or atleast I think it did- it tasted awesome!)
My cooking tragedies
One time I tried to make a broccoli pesto in a blender because I didn't have a food processor. Let's just say it didn't end well and that it made a big mess :)

Pumpkin Dessert
This was really good as is BUT I modified the recipe to the tastes of my family. I left the crust the same, but in the filling I decreased the sugar to 5/16 cup (which turns out to be 5 tablespoons OR 1/4 plus 1 tablespoon) and left everything else the same. In the topping I used margarine instead of butter, only 1/4 cup of sugar, 2 teaspoons of cinnamon, and no nuts. We thought the modified version was better because it was still rich, but not overly rich. This makes a lot! We had 6 people at thanksgiving and we only ate about 1/4 of the cake! I would recommend this, but perhaps thinks about modifying the sugar so that it isn't soooooo rich! I didn't think it was bland at all. It had the perfect amount of spice for me. I will continue to make this!

Sarah's Applesauce
This is soooo good! I make it just for myself and cut the recipe down to use only one apple most of the time. It is not too sweet and is just the best!

Coconut Cream Cake II
This cake was good, my family absolutely loved it and could not stop eating it (including my dad who rarely eats sweets unless he thinks they are "worth it" to him). I, on the otherhand, thought it was good, but it was a bit sweet for my taste. I couldn't eat very much of it before I felt a little sick. Overall though, I'd say it was good. It was extremely moist and had a good flavor. I aslo baked it as stated in a 9 by 13 inch pan, but baked it a few minutes longer than called for. Good recipe and VERY easy!
