About this Cook
I am a full-time administrative assistant and a part-time college instructor. My Husband is a phenomenal, inventive cook. I only started baking 10 years ago and cooking about 6 years ago. I am still learning.
My favorite things to cook
Desserts and appetizers. I also love variations on meatloaf.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family knew how to throw a Christmas party. There were intricately decorated sugar cookies, cocktail weenies in secret sauce, dips, and sandwiches cut into festive shapes with cookie cutters. I still love to treat friends to finger foods with visual appeal.
My cooking triumphs
By the time I was 8 I knew how to decorate sugar cookies like a pro. The first cake I ever made was a Tunnel of Fudge Bundt cake from scratch. I made it without a mixer. I made up my own recipe for crab, spinach, and artichoke rolls that get rave reviews. I made up a recipe for a mint chocolate cake with green minty icing.
My cooking tragedies
My first brownies were tragic. I used canola oil, not knowing it did not have enough fat. I also forgot to grease the pan.
