About this Cook
My cooking triumphs
I was a finalist at the Gilroy Garlic Festival Cook-Off. My 15 minutes of fame!
My cooking tragedies
I made a beautiful macadamia nut bundt cake using mac nut liqueur. The recipe was very similar to a rum cake. Unfortunately, a large portion of the cake stuck to the silicone bundt pan I was using. I tried to salvage as much of the cake as I could and liberally brushed it with the mac nut liqueur glaze I had made. Although the presentation wasn't the greatest, it tasted fabulous!

Candied Pecans
I halved the recipe since I only had an 8 oz. bag of pecans. I used 1/4 cup of sugar and only 1/4 tsp. of salt since the nuts were already salted. I didn't mess with trying to cut the egg white in half and used the whole thing along with a splash of vanilla with the water before whisking the liquid mixture. These are delicious and I can't wait to use them in salads (if I don't eat them all first!).

Surprise Inside Independence Cake
If you add a few drops of white food coloring (Americolor brand) while mixing the cake, the batter will stay white instead of turning yellow from the pudding mix.
