About this Cook
I live in Virginia. I'm getting my Associates Degree in Culinary Arts. Going to school for cooking has definitely given me a new respect for all of those involved in the food industry. It's also taught me that I do not want to be a chef like I originally intended. But ! I am learning an incredible amount of information so I am completing this degree. When I'm not in school or working my job (as a receptionist for a local business), I play and record music, spend time with my incredible family, hike, camp, anything outdoors... I remain happy with a loving surrounding.
My favorite things to cook
Cakes. I love.... baking cakes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like that we have a cookout for almost every holiday in existence. I've had the same Christmas breakfast for the past 10 years and see no change in the near future.
My cooking triumphs
Home made spinach pasta. It literally took all day to make.
My cooking tragedies
Cake balls. They tasted good, sure, but their presentation was awful. I think in general I fail at dipping things into chocolate.

Banana Muffins II
used some cinnamon and cloves, just under 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 whole wheat flour. I also put some peanut butter cream cheese frosting blobs I had left over from a cake in the center.. kind of made a hole in the center, but it spread the peanut butter flavor throughout the entire muffin. So.... so good.

Mocha Coffee
Not bad. Could use some adjusting. Then again, my review doesn't count because I'm not the biggest "mocha" fan to begin with. Ha !

Lacy Oatmeal Cookies
pretty good. i used 1/2 cup of sugar (half of the half was brown sugar, the other white). i added in about a 1/4 cup of coconut flakes....cause i love em. ha ! was very good. though...i found the first batch i made impossible to peel off the parchment paper because they were too big. the following were smaller and very easy to peel off... so... be sure they're small.
