About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake for people, something about fresh baked goods always seems to make people happy. It's great to look back over old family recipes and make some of the favorites from when we were kids, especially around the holidays!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite cooking traditions center around the holidays. When we were kids, my mom would save up money so that during the holidays we would bake trays of cookies and fresh cardamom bread for our friends and neighbors, and we kids would get to held decorate, and then deliver them all around the neighborhood.

Firefighter's Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie
Oh my gosh! These are SO good! I used a bag of SKOR toffee chips instead of chopping up the candy bars, and milk chocolate chips... and they were a HUGE hit!

Gluten-Free Peanut Butter Cookies
I thought these were GREAT!! The only problem I had with these is I used and ungreased, air-bake cookie sheet... and had to pry them off, I switched to a lightly greased "regular" cookie sheet, and the rest came out beautifully!!
