About this Cook
I love to bake!
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to bake are desserts of all kinds. And I'm always trying new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favo family memory traditions are just being in the kitchen helping mama cook!
My cooking triumphs
After about 4 years, finally figuring out how to make an excellent cheesecake! And just developing into a good baker.
My cooking tragedies
Um I've had some serious cheesecake mishaps. Also bad experiments with adding WAY too much liquid to a pound cake and having it turn out really inedible and dense! And I'm happy to say those days are gone!

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls
This cinnamon roll recipe is my GO TO recipe for this treat! These are soft and moist and I covered mine with foil and sat them on the kitchen counter with the oven on low. I let them rise about 3hrs and they were HUGE when I put them in the oven! I baked them at 350 until they were golden brown. Great great GREAT cinnamon rolls!

Vanilla - Chocolate Powdered Sugar Frosting
This is a fabulous frosting. You HAVE to ignore the butter request for this recipe and use only white vegetable shortening. Trust me, I've used butter/margerine and shortening. And the frosting came out a little grainy and sort of looks like it is separating when made with butter or margerine. But if you make it with shortening it will look and taste like buttercream. Fabulous!

Buttery Soft Pretzels
This is an awesome recipe! I'm looking for items to make for a bake sale. So glad I found this recipe! Even tried another recipe from another site to compare and those came out tasting more like bread sticks than pretzels! The baking soda water bath is key. Also I had such a hard time using flour to roll the pretzels and found a how-to video from Auntie Anne's pretzel company online and it suggested not using flour while rolling the pretzels and it worked! I took the advice of other reviewers and only used 4 cups of flour. And use a clean towel or a few sheets of papertowel for blotting excess water after dipping pretzels--also on the how-to video. And so I made these soooo many different ways, too! Salt, Cinnamon and sugar, cinnamon raisin, apple cinnamon (just dice two small apples in small pieces add it and 1 tblspoon of apple pie spice to ingredients while mixing dough. It makes the dough a little stickier when rolling out, but well worth it in the end!), pumpkin spice (used all 5 cups of flour and just a little more and add 1 cup of pumpkin puree, and 1 tblspoon pumpkin pie spice to dough while mixing).This recipe is awesome, do yourself a favor and try it!
