About this Cook
I started cooking when I got married, but 2 years later, I'm still just an amateur. =]
My favorite things to cook
Casseroles are becoming my dinner go-to's. I'm a baker more than a cook, but I'm getting braver as far as trying new foods. Maybe soon I'll learn to cook a meat other than chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's baking is to die for. If it can be baked, she does it extraordinarily. Holidays, family members flock to her place to get fat and happy.
My cooking triumphs
I made Chicken Katsu and curry last week, and it was pretty fab.
My cooking tragedies
I can't scramble eggs. Don't ask me how it happens, but they don't turn out for me. Ever. Scrambled eggs and I are just not friends.

Simple White Cake
I use this recipe several times a month, and I LOVE it! So simple, and whips up quickly. Up the milk to 3/4C, use that whisk attachment, and beat the everloving heck out of the butter and eggs. This recipe makes a perfect 2-layer 6" cake.

Carrot Cake III
The recipe as is merits 4 stars. Almost perfect. However, I caved and changed things up quite a bit. I used half white and half light brown sugar, used 1/2C. applesauce and the rest of the oil, added 1C. raisins and 1/4t. nutmeg.

Banana Crumb Muffins
Utter deliciousness! I did tweak the recipe a bit as per other reviewer's suggestions. Oil instead of butter because I happened to be out, and I added 1/2t. cinnamon plus 1/2t. nutmeg to the batter. I put the crumb topping on for the last 5 minutes of baking, and the next day, the tops were still beautiful and crunchy. Definitely one to keep.
