About this Cook
I live in a cabin on Hood Canal on the Olympic Peninsula and have a bead business called MsBijouxBeads.com. I love to hike in the mountains and bike on the backroads. I have traveled the world and love visiting markets and trying new food and spices. Lately I have a renewed interest in baking, may be my new kitchen or eating more meals at home.
My favorite things to cook
Right now cooking with vegetables and a renewed interest in baking. Making a good bbq shortrib
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lately I have been trying sugar cookie recipes, trying to re-create the ones from my childhood.
My cooking triumphs
Making a perfect sugar cookie last week-end. I didn't know it until I made another batch yesterday and they didn't taste as good.

The Best Lemon Tart Ever
Perfect tang to this tart filling, not to sweet, not to sour! I want a tart that makes my mouth water and this one did. Next time I make it I will reduce the sugar a tad only because I like my tarts on the tart side I used mini tart pans for individual servings and they turned out perfect. Just reduced the baking time a bit but I did keep an eagle eye on the filling toward the end. Going to make again for guests using full size pan . On a side note about the crust, I added in some green tea matcha powder and the combination of lemon and green tea was to die for

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
Halved the recipe and made exactly as directed and came out with a perfect cookie. Crisp on the edge and chewy in the middle. Made one batch extra large size and one batch smaller, both came out perfect, bravo!

Caramel Frosting I
Wonderful frosting. I made exactly as directed (with cream) and it turned out perfect. Frosted a chocolate cupcake and put a pinch of Sea Salt on top, tasted great! Thank you for a great frosting
