My Meez
About this Cook
Part-time craft/hobby store employee, full-time mother. Studied graphic design and desktop publishing. An avid cross-stitcher and reader. Fantasy and sci-fi fan. Former RPGer (but I still have most of the stuff). Into web design, holidays, faeries, mermaids, dragons, ancient Egypt, anime, and (of course) Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter!
My favorite family cooking traditions
The pineapple cream gelatin ring every Christmas!
My cooking tragedies
Tragedies? I've made some classic mistakes. As a kid I tried to make vanilla pudding from a chocolate pudding recipe that used unsweetened chocolate , and didn't think to adjust the sugar (waaay too sweet!). And, of course, my sister and I baked our first Thanksgiving turkey with the bag still inside (oops!).

Spring Lime Tea Cookies
These were so light and with such a wonderful flavor! Definately will make these again.

Plum Bread
I made this for a holiday party and everyone loved it! The brushed on lemon glaze added a nice tangy crust I'd be tempted to use on other cakes as well. I decided to leave out the red food coloring, and I couldn't find plum baby food, so I used baby prunes instead.

Mocha Bundt Cake
Made this at Xmas time for the teachers at my daughter's school. They've been asking for another one ever since!
