About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Chocolaty and weird desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
On thanksgiving all my family comes and brings something that they made and we bake until about 3:00.
My cooking tragedies
On my mom's birthday i tried to make a vanilla chocolate cake with a really good frosting but I substituted granulate sugar for powdered in the frosting and it turned out really bad.

Almond Thins
I made a pecan variation of this recipe that I would have given 4 stars but didn't think I could because I changed it so much. First I added a little bit more sugar which not surprisingly made them too sweet. Also I used 3/4 cups of chopped pecans added right after the flour and ommited the almonds on top. I didn't know how much I was supposed to roll them out so I did as much as I could with the pecans. My family loved them but I wasn't really crazy about them. I think If I chopped the pecans more and added spices they would be really good.

These Beignets were the best I've had with out actually going to Cafe Du Monde, I'm glad that I can still have warm, light beignets living in Montana! I couldn't figure out how long to chill for so I settled on about an hour and a half.
