Marbled Pumpkin Gingersnap Cheesecake
Me and my bagel
About this Cook
Nothing makes me happier than to cook a meal that my husband loves and begs for me to make again. I'm always looking for recipes to make him proud.
My favorite things to cook
Any desserts with cinnamon or berries. I love pasta & different sauces. Any kind of soups or cold weather dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's green bean casserole on Thanksgiving and Christmas. Also, my mom's Friday taco night & spaghetti Wednesday. Her taco & spaghetti recipe have become my comfort foods.
My cooking triumphs
When I met my husband, he told me if I was going to be with him, I'll need to learn how to make his grandmother's homemade dressing. It took his step mom 6 or 7 years to make grandmother's dressing perfectly. After you mill the cornbread & add seasonings, you have to add chicken broth one spoonful at a time until it's just the right amount of liquid and soilds. Grandmother never measured anything, she just added stuff until it tasted or looked right. His grandmother told me how to make it without me watching and only tasting it twice, it came out perfect the first time and has every time since.
My cooking tragedies
I attempted to surprise my husband with a dessert that consisted of apples in a carmel sauce with fried tortilla strips tossed in a cinnamon sugar mixture. I had never fried anything in my life. So in our brand new $100 calphalon pan, I heated the oil up on an electric stove set on 9. I figured that you boil water on the hottest setting, why not heat oil up on the same? I had burns from the oil popping out, the tortilla strips burned and I scorched our pan. Took 4 days of soaking the pan in baking soda, vinegar and scrubbing to get most of the scorched markings off of it. Now I start out low when frying and slowly heat it up.

World's Best Lasagna
This is the best recipe of lasagna I've found. It's worth all of the hard work. My husband loved the sauce so much that I usually just end up cooking the sauce to freeze so we can thaw it out for tortellini, baked ziti, spaghetti, or lasagna. I added more seasoning than it called for to suit our tastes. We never go without this.

Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake
This was my first cheesecake I've ever made. Turned out amazing, was a huge hit at the dinner party I took it to. And my husband who isn't a big fan of pumpkin loved it! The only thing they didn't say was to put a pan of water under the cheesecake to keep it from cracking. You also have to be careful not to overbeat the batter once you add the eggs in or it'll crack when you bake it as well. Luckily, I knew how to make a cheesecake and with those extra precautions & step, it turned out perfectly. I did add a little more cinnamon than it called for, but it was perfect.

Dreamy Nighttime Drink
This was very relaxing and comforting. Although, I'm not a huge fan of the flavor of warm milk. I ended up needing to add more vanilla & cinnamon. Will make it again.
