About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking for my friends - anything from munchies to take with us to the local winery to a decadent, multi-course, holiday dinner. They seem to like it too. :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was 7 years old, my second grade class had to do presentations about our ethnic heritage. I have some French ancestry so my mother made the traditional "buche de noel", or Yule Log cake, for my class. It was so delicious, we've been eating Yule Log cake every Christmas for 26 years!

Hard Sauce
As some other reviewers mentioned, I also took the sugar to mean granulated. I had to beat the tar out of it to get rid of most of the grit (I didn't have all day to keep beating this to smooth it out completely). I think this recipe should call for powdered sugar but you may need more than the 1/2 cup called for in this recipe. I also omitted the almond extract and added way more brandy - probably closer to 1/4 cup.

Mini Ham And Cheese Rolls
I've been making these for years and love them! I don't mind the onion but most of the time I leave it out - some people are finicky about onions and these rolls are still delicious without them. I wrap them individually in foil before baking so the rolls don't dry out. Also, I find that these freeze well so you might find it worth it to whip up a big batch, bake them then freeze them so you can grab one or two for a fast breakfast on the go. They reheat well and pretty quickly in the microwave (remember to remove the foil before microwaving).

Cake Balls
Ugh. These are way too much of a pain to make and I didn't think the end result was worth it. In fact, I didn't care for them at all (I used red velvet cake mix and cream cheese frosting). I dipped about 2 dozen and have about 3 dozen left to dip but am so annoyed with them that I think I'm just going to skip it.
