About this Cook
I'm originally from Defiance, OH and just began cooking my senior year of college (Go BG!). I finally got a large enough kitchen in college that I could try some of my cooking skills. Now I am a teacher in Dublin and had to resort back to the small kitchen at my apartment :( I love trying new recipes but I also love making mom's favorites.
My favorite things to cook
Anything in the crock pot is good for me! On weekends though I do like to take my time and try something new besides throwing everything in the crock pot before I go to work. Chicken is my love and there are so many different things you can do with it!
My cooking triumphs
I made creme brulee! I was so excited to try something on a more difficult scale, so now I feel pretty confident about my cooking abilities! Maybe next year I could try a Thanksgiving meal!
My cooking tragedies
So far, I haven't ruined anything, I just haven't liked the taste of some of the new recipes I've tried.

Walnut Balls
I LOVE this recipe. It is so easy and quick! I didn't do the walnuts though. I substituted almonds for walnuts and almond extract for the vanilla. SO delicious! I also only cooked them for 12 minutes, they were less dry than the whole 15 minutes. I finally managed to match the old almond ball recipe that I had been looking for!!!

Cake Balls
The recipe was really easy to make but I found it rather difficult to get the cake balls to stay on while I was dipping them in the chocolate. So I ended up freezing them, then dipped them, and put them back in the freezer. My friends like them better frozen!
