Black Forest Cake I
About this Cook
I'm a young 20-something musician. I freelance on steel pan and percussion, teach lesson, and even sell crafts online! I'm married and started cooking out of necessity.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking the most. I like to bake muffins, cookies and bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making cookies every christmas.
My cooking triumphs
I started cooking every night to save money. I work at home and have a lot more free time than my husband, who used to cook a lot. I used to be horrible at it, but now I'm pretty good and am finally able to adjust recipes and know how to fix problems. I still am not in love with cooking, but I do enjoy trying new recipes, and have come a long way from absolutely hating to cook!
My cooking tragedies
I've done so many stupid things in the kitchen, most of them involving me forgetting that I was cooking! I once was boiling eggs and forgot about them. I went in the basement with my husband for who knows how long. I suddenly remembered the eggs! I ran up stairs to a nasty smell. The water had boiled away and the eggs were actually popping open in the pan and everywhere! Now I set a timer whenever I boil water so I don't forget about it!

Chewy Granola Bars
These are definitely yummy- because they're basically cookies! Tasty recipe, but I wouldn't call them granola bars.

Best Bread Machine Bread
Great recipe. I too was afraid of going against the manufacturer's recommendation of putting yeast on top. But after reading another review that said they tried it as written, I decided to try as the recipe is written. Turned out perfect. I used 2 1/2 cups white all-purpose flour and 1/2 cup whole wheat. It made a nice light wheat bread.

Very delicious! I used strawberries instead of cherries, but did everything else the same and it was wonderful. Very moist and I loved the whipped cream topping!
