About this Cook
I've been cooking since I was in grade school. I come from a long line of good cooks, so I'm trying to keep the tradition going! I've taught myself a lot about cooking just through trying new recipes and reading food blogs. I also belong to a small cooking forum of women that share friendship and a love of cooking. If you're interested in joining, send me an email at emilysposton@gmail.com .
My favorite things to cook
I have a sweet tooth, so baking is my favorite thing to do in the kitchen. I've also been decorating cakes for 10 years or so and in the past few years I've been doing more with cupcake and cookie decorating.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas baking! I love making cut-out sugar cookies, christmas candy, fudge, etc. My daughter celebrated her first Christmas last year and it was a blast, even if she was too young to help with the baking. I can't wait until she's old enough to decorating cookies with me!
My cooking triumphs
I made my husband's groom's cake for our wedding. It featured the university we both attended. It was a big hit!
My cooking tragedies
I had a run of bad luck with pies for awhile. Soggy crusts, separated fillings, burnt meringues...luckily I'm getting better.

Grilled Pineapple Slices
This was absolutely delicious. I soaked the pineapple slices (cut fairly thick-I got 7 slices from one pineapple) in coconut milk before placing on the grill. Then I sprinkled with the cinnamon sugar. I served this with vanilla bean ice cream and a sprinkle of nutmeg on top. The smokey taste from the grill tasted so good with the tangy pineapple and sweet cinnamon. I'll definitely make this again. My husband declared it the best pineapple he's ever eaten!

Rosemary Ranch Chicken Kabobs
I love this recipe and have made it several times. The only change I make is to cut back the oil to 1/4 cup. The longer you marinate this, the better. This is good on skewers like the recipe suggests but I've also used the marinade on boneless skinless chicken breasts.

Jerre's Black Bean and Pork Tenderloin Slow Cooker Chili
This was amazing! I used a pork loin roast rather than a tenderloin and it came out very tender. I served it with Cilantro Lime rice and it reminded me so much of a burrito bowl from Chipotle. I will definitely make this again.
