About this Cook
I am a 27 year old woman, an audacious beer snob (along with my husband)and self-proclaimed artist by heart. I love the outdoors, shopping and, of course, cooking. I like chips on my sandwiches and my cooking style is "free-hand" i.e. a little bit of this, that looks right, etc.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook casseroles. They are SO easy and you can get very creative. Plus, they freeze well. Anything quick, easy and nutritional is my forte.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year for Thanksgiving and Christmas, my grandmother would make THE best cornbread dressing. Oh. MyGod. My in-laws don't even compare lol though they make some killer desserts. I truly enjoy sitting around the table and just having "family time."
My cooking triumphs
I have mastered my great-grandmother's sweet potato pie! I have also won over not only my husband's heart but his stomach, too. He says that there hasn't been a dish yet (since we've been with each other) that I haven't knocked out of the park.
My cooking tragedies
I cannot for the life of me make pie dough/crust. I buh-low at it lol.

Banana Muffins II
I loved these! I read all the "bad" reviews first and have concluded that the bakers either a) mixed the batter TOO much, b) added too many extras like cinnamon and vanilla, or c) all of the above. I made two batches: regular (as written) and toasted coconut and toasted walnuts to batch number two. Both were fabulous :) I used almost black bananas, no cinnamon, no vanilla and they were very banana-y.

Quick Yeast Rolls
These were a great and a special Monday night treat for DH and me. They were very easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly. The dough is extremely sticky, but that can be remedied by spooning the dough into the greased muffin tin instead of rolling into a balls. Again, really great, tasty, quick yeast rolls!

Italian Cream Cheese and Ricotta Cheesecake
We loved this cheesecake. DH is a cheesecake freak and I do believe that this is now his favorite cheesecake recipe. The texture is light and almost "egg custard-y;" almost like egg custard pie. If you're looking for dense, super smoothe, NY-style cheesecake, you need to look at other recipes. The ricotta cheese is prominent as well as the texture. Mine cracked horribly but I followed the recipe and method to a T. I do believe the temp needs to be at 325 degrees farenheit and the cake would probably benefit a water bath while cooking to prevent the cracks. The flavor is absolutely wonderful and, if covered with a sauce, is presentable. Oh, and I love the fact that there is no crust!
