Sugar Cookies
About this Cook
EXTREMELY happily married to a wonderful, supportive husband. I have two terrific children and stay VERY VERY busy. I work full-time for a Non-Profit organization AND on-top of that, I am a full-time college student. I love to bake, everyone says I should do it professionally.
My favorite things to cook
any baked goods, cupcakes, cakes, cookies, holiday-themed goodies, soups, desserts, and anything that is a challenge as long as I've got the time, which is hard to come by for someone as busy as me!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas time: every year at christmas, we make cut-out shortbread/sugar cookies, we frost & decorate them with a variety of different color frostings & sprinkles. I also started a tradition of making chocolate covered pretzel-rods decorated with sprinkles and put them in treat bags along with other goodies - I pass them out every year at Christmas at my work and my husband's work.
My cooking triumphs
Lots of baked goods. I use the recipes on here & tweek them. I am the official cake maker and baker for my employer. I love to make all types of soups, cannot get enough. I'm known for my cookies, cakes, cheesecakes, and christmas treats.
My cooking tragedies
Homemade macaroni & cheese (the cheese mix tasted like flour)

No Bake Peanut Butter Bars
The chocolate hardens and when trying to cut the bars, it cracks and is messy. Then the bars were still squishy hours after being refrigerated. Needless to say, I was disappointed in the recipe, it tastes okay but is really rich in peanut butter and seriously lacks presentation.

Robbi's M&M Cookies
Great, delicious cookies. I cringe at using shortening in my recipes. But was afraid butter would make my cookies flat & unappealing, so I did what many other users suggested and did half-butter and half-shortening. Additionally, I refridgerated the cookies overnight because in many cases if the dough is cold when it hits the oven, it less likely to spread out really thin and won't be as flat. So, it helped my probability of flat cookies. See my pictures.

Chocolate Ganache
I used this over my lite buttercream icing with a dark chocolate cake and it was delicous! It was a huge hit at work as it was served at an office birthday party for my boss. Thanks for the fab recipe!
