About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Baking desserts with my daughter & absolutely anything else. I love trying different styles, recipes, cuisines, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being able to help out in the kitchen from a very early age with grandma. She always left "accidental" globs of batter in the bowl for me whenever we baked together. Now I do the same things with my kids.
My cooking triumphs
Creating desserts that are the hit of the gathering, successfully working with new recipes
My cooking tragedies
Baking bread with my daughter. We have yet to have a batch turn out right that we've done together!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins
Great recipe! I ran through the ingredients as posted with just a couple changes. I doubled the blueberries, added a tsp of lemon juice (will add a little more next time), and used brown sugar for the topping. When I filled 4 jumbo muffin cups 3/4 full I had enough batter left and decided to make some minis as well. Topping amount was good for all muffins. I put both pans in the oven at the same time and pulled the mini pan out after about 13 minutes. Thanks for sharing this recipe!!

Grandma's Gingersnap Cookies
This is a fantastic recipe and sooo easy! I made them for a cookie party and then a couple weeks later for a potluck with rave reviews all around. I followed the recipe as is, but like several others added clove and nutmeg. I discovered I didn't have a sifter so I added the dry ingredients to my blender and pulsed it a few times. The end result was a perfect slightly cracked cookie surface.

Italian Wedding Soup I
Great recipe! Per other reviews this is what I did: browned meatballs in olive oil and used turkey instead of ground beef, added celery, and only used about 1/3 of the orzo pasta. I waited until just before serving to add the pasta and just cooked it in the soup. That worked out great since I was done simmering it. Thanks for the recipe and all the suggestions!
