Ruby's Big Day
About this Cook
We're very fortunate to live on a beautiful 10 acres & have 3 horses & 2 cats. When I was about 12 years old my Mom had back surgery. She really needed help with household things especially cooking and cleaning. That's when I fell in love with cooking. Since I first found AR I've been cranking out some great stuff and I really love trying new things.
My favorite things to cook
I LOVE to bake. Since I've been using AR I've found so many great recipes and hubby is a great guinea pig. The last couple of Christmases I've been baking, packaging it really cool and giving it as gifts. I didn't realize how much people enjoy receiving it until I watched the look on their faces when they open the gift.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is German so our family meals are fabulous. Rot kohl, rouladen, sauerbraten, spatzle, lots of bread, vanillefinger...mmmmm My sister-in-law and I started our own tradition of getting together once a month to cook a full corse meal of things we've always wanted to try.
My cooking triumphs
I try to have an attitude that everything that turns out really good is a triumph. I have been very lucky with some pretty great looking cakes and pastries. I made my brother's wedding cake so that was definately a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
My one tradedy is the kind that my family will never let me forget. I was 13 and made onion rings for the first (and so far only) time. My Dad and brother got so sick and won't let me forget...ever.

Classic Cinnamon Rolls
By far the best I've ever made and ever tasted! In one of the other reviews I read that they used 2 cups of potato water instead of just 1 and then 1 cup of hot water and I did that. I had tried this recipe with mashed potatoes and potato water I had made specifically for this and then froze it. I definitely pays to do the potatoes the same day!

Seriously my family argues over the last dumpling!! The only thing I did different was to double the recipe.

Cherry Cheesecake
The best ever. So easy to make & everyone loves it. Lots of requests for this cheesecake, definitely recommend! I added a little bit more vanilla but I usually do that with most baking recipes. A must have on a hot summer day!
