About this Cook
I love to bake - I am addicted to sweets. In my free time you will find me looking through my cookbooks (I love to collect vintage ones) or listening to music. I am a supreme nerd, glasses and all, but nerds do it better! : )I love fashion, and anything cute. I am definitely a girly girl all the way, yet I manage to get along better with guys than girls. Well if there's anything more you'd like to know, ask! ^_^
My favorite things to cook
Desserts, Comfort food, Indian, Hispanic, Asian, French, Vegan-Vegetarian, Healthy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas/Holiday baking and candy-making with the family all throughout the season.
My cooking triumphs
Every time I am able to create something new from scratch without a recipe on hand.
My cooking tragedies
Making Hummingbird cake with bread flour when no all-purpose was available, and having it turn out as a thick banana bread.

Ricotta Cookies III
I love these homemade ricotta cookies! They are very cakey, yet crumbly and buttery. To highlight the lemon flavor in the glaze, you might want to add the zest of half a lemon! It freshens the cookie without a severe lemony flavor.

This turned out SO delicious! It was decadent, rich, and hard not to gobble up all on my own! Thanks for an amazing recipe!

Clone of a Cinnabon
Subbed the eggs with 1/3 c oil, used less flour, no cream cheese like I do in my own recipe and it still was AMAZING.
