About this Cook
I'm a preschool teacher by career, and a baker by hobby. I love being in the kitchen, I cook as often as possible. My specialty is cooking for picky eaters, especially small husband, for example.
My favorite things to cook
Stir-fried vegetables, pasta, all kinds of baked sweets.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade cookies, hand-rolled sushi, and tons of kid-friendly cooking.
My cooking triumphs
The best thing I've ever made was chocolate cupcakes with a molten chocolate ganache center and a cinnamon anglaise sauce.
My cooking tragedies
Burning a pot of spaghetti sauce in high school - I got distracted, and when I came back to check on it, the sauce had turned into a blackened, smoking mess.

Granny's Filled Cookies
I make a cookie almost exactly like this. The dough is much, much easier to work with if you chill it for an hour or more in the fridge after mixing. Roll it out with a rolling pin on a floured surface, and use a cookie cutter to get the flat rounds.
