About this Cook
We're an organic, vegetarian family due to some food sensitivities that my three-year-old has, so we're always (ALWAYS!!) looking for delicious alternatives to the preservative-laden foods we love.
My favorite things to cook
Baked goods!! Right now I'm searching for the perfect cinnamon roll...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Well, as traditions go, I spend most of my time cooking with three little "helpers" under my nose!
My cooking triumphs
A few wedding cakes have turned out beautifully, and I find I can usually bake just about anything!
My cooking tragedies
Sadly, I have never made a lemon meringue pie that wasn't a disaster, and lemon meringue pie is my absolute favorite!

Best Toffee Ever - Super Easy
Made 1/2 the recipe and used a 9x13 pan. PERFECTION. The texture was even better the following day.

Banana Sour Cream Bread
Pay attention to the loaf sizes. When it says 7"x3" loaves, they're not kidding, although it made six loaves, not four. One hour at 300 degrees was perfect for the size specified. The insides were cooked perfectly and there was no thick, dry crust on the outside like I typically get with quick breads. VERY moist. I made the bread exactly as stated. I skipped the cinnamon-sugar topping and instead made a glaze of confectioner's sugar, a little orange juice and zest to pour over the bread and it was fantastic. I will keep this recipe on heavy rotation. UPDATE: Makes terrific muffins too! 15-18 minutes at 300 degrees!
