About this Cook
I am a newlywed that enjoys trying out new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. Mostly cookies and cakes. I also enjoy baking breads. I enjoy slow cooking and casseroles as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up I have fond memories of baking Christmas cookies with my mother and aunt.
My cooking triumphs
I baked cookies as presents for everyone last Christmas. Everyone loves my snicker doodles.
My cooking tragedies
My last try of making a chocolate chip bread expanded into the rest of bread machine making a huge mess. It still tasted good.

Guinness(R) Corned Beef
4 stars because the beef was wonderful, but the veggies came out horrible. Tasted completely like beer. Will make the beef in the beer and the veggies seperate. Live and learn.

Pennsylvania Dutch Pickled Beets and Eggs
I used 1/2 the sugar that recipe called for. Was overall well received for Easter. I might make them again next year.

Spanish Rice II
Skipped the peppers. Very tasty. Will make this one again. Simple and good. Switched the water with chicken broth and used bacon grease as suggested by other reviewers.
