About this Cook
I enjoy all things food - discussing it, cooking it, and of course, tasting new foods. Most of what I know is self taught by experimenting in the kitchen. Some ideas come from books, magazines, and the Food Network, but a lot of what I make is just creative ideas off the top of my head. Someday, I would enjoy taking formal cooking classes to see what I'm doing right (or wrong) and what I could be doing better. My other passion is travel. I enjoy experiencing other cultures and especially, tasting the local cuisine.

Peanut Butter and Pumpkin Dog Treats
This was the stickiest, most difficult dough to work with. After many attempts to roll out the dough and cut them into cute shapes, I gave up and just put globs of sticky dough on a tray to bake. My dog liked these, but they were a nightmare to prepare and not worth the trouble. Will be trying a different recipe next time.

Sugar Cookie Icing
Great recipe! I had to a little extra milk to the recipe to thin it out for how I wanted it to work and I also took the suggestion of one of the reviewer's below and added lemon extract (in addition to the almond). The extra taste was perfect!

The Best Rolled Sugar Cookies
I've never been a successful sugar cookie baker, but this recipe changed that for me! They are absolutely wonderful and got rave reviews from everyone I had try them over this past weekend. I'll definitely be hanging onto this recipe and making them again. The only addition I made to this recipe was adding 1 tsp of almond extract (in addition to the vanilla) for a little added flavor.
