About this Cook
I live near Cleveland and all of my favorite hobbies are a bit.. sedetary. Baking, crocheting, reading, and vidja games. Also I'm a terrible cook but I can bake like a champ.
My favorite things to cook
Baking anything that others will enjoy. I'm actually not a big fan of cookies or cakes (all sweet and no bite save gingerbreads), but everyone else around me is and I seem to bake well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies. We go crazy and scour for more cookie recipes every December. Butter press to deep fried, we lurve Christmas cookies.
My cooking triumphs
I finally learned this summer how to make pancakes! Eggs I can cook. For some reason I fail at pancakes.
My cooking tragedies
Most every other batch of pancakes.

Orange Marmalade Cookies
The texture was amaaaaazing. They were like tiny cakes! I give this recipe 5 stars for ease, texture, and flexibility. I can't get Smucker's here, and my marmalade was a bit bitter and also weak in flavor. I compensated by using extra marmalade. The cookies were very nice. They were not too sweet nor bitter, and the bitterness actually helped balance them out well. I made frosting, but I did not end up using it for these as I thought they were great by themselves. For a few batches, I sprinked a bit of turbinado sugar on top before baking to give them a crunchy top.

Chef John's Peach Cobbler
Great, easy, and easily changeable recipe. I used half canned peaches and half fresh rhubarb. Instead of Chinese 5 Spice, I used a bit of ginger. Came out very good, although the top started to burn before it was really set. This could have been my weird oven, though. I cooked part in an 8-inch glass dish and part in a smaller, 3x7 disposable dish so I could give a bit to my neighbor. I still had about 3/4 cup of the fruit mix leftover, so I simmered it down and am freezing it for another great adventure.

Cinnamon Raisin Bread I
Perfect! I cut the recipe in half and make one loaf in a 9x5 pan, and it's the perfect size. I cut it down to 1 egg. I cooked mine for 35 mins, then left the oven open and the bread in to cool. SO good!!
