About this Cook
I am newly married and always looking for ways to impress my man with wonderful food! He comes from a low-fat family and I come from a low-carb family, so it's always a (fun) challenge to find something that makes us both happy.
My favorite things to cook
Yeast breads, quick breads, scones, cookies, complicated romantic meals, pizza, ice ream, energy bars, and any dish with ginger and garlic
My favorite family cooking traditions
For thanksgiving, I remember my mom making green bean casserole, yams, and pecan pie. Basically any holiday food gives me the warm-fuzzies!
My cooking triumphs
After countless tries, I can finally make yeast bread without mishap. I don't even have to tap the bottom anymore to know when it's done! Also, I have managed to (almost) perfect my mother-in-law's amazing cookie recipe that my husband can't live without!
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make pancakes for my husband and me during a camping trip. We were in a much higher altitude than normal, and I accidentally used very hot water to mix up the pancakes. They cooked for so long, and were still doughy and gross inside. I ended up throwing them all back in the skillet, hoping to "scramble" them, but they just formed a sticky ball. It was a disaster!

White Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake
I have not tasted them yet, but from the other reviews, I'm not too worried. I made 1/3 of the recipe (the only difficulty was 1/6th cup, but otherwise it was simple). It yeilded 5 individual muffin-cup servings that are perfect for the dinner date I'm having with my husband on Friday! If anyone wants to try it, you press the crust into five muffin cups (well-greased), add about 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons filling, 1 teaspoon sauce, then another 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons filling. About 1/2 teaspoon does it for the designs on top, then there's about 1/2 cup left for serving. They were done in about 40-45 minutes. They look lovely, but they did "collapse" quite a lot after I baked them. This recipe was really easy and fun to make!!
