About this Cook
I've been working in restaurants for about 8 years, mostly waiting tables, but the chefs at the restaurant I'm working now have been giving me a lot of tips on how to be a better cook. I never could afford culinary school, but I hope to make a living one day as a baker. No one pays me for it now, but I'm always trying new things and feeding my coworkers the results.
My favorite things to cook
Anything involving sugar or bread!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I was raised on take-out and Hamburger Helper....I don't know where my love of cooking came from.
My cooking triumphs
I've impressed with the birthday cakes I've made for friends and family.
My cooking tragedies
I was about 8 years old the first time I baked cookies, and I forgot to put the flour in! My parents thought it was hilarious, and I was so embarrassed, but I have never since forgotten an ingredient in a recipe!

Chocolate Truffle Cookies with Sea Salt
I bought some dark chocolate sea salt from my local spice shop, and wanted something to make with it. These cookies were perfect! Everything turned out great...I love gooey cookies more than anything.

Mini Cheesecakes
These came out great, but it's kind of a pain if you make a traditional graham cracker crust and press it into the bottoms (which I did anyway). The rest was super easy though, and the recipe is versatile. This time I mixed in toffee bits. I took a bunch to my doctor's office, and then they understood why I have gained so much weight during my pregnancy!

Bella's Rosemary Red Potatoes
This was my first time making red potatoes, and they came out great. Probably just because I'm pregnant, I added sliced mushrooms to them. I ate almost all of them by myself.
