About this Cook
I'm a 20 something year old who just moved to the food loving city of Austin Texas. My husband and I have grown our love of cooking together over the years and continue to look for more unique and challenging recipes. Cooking and baking has turned into a therapy for both my husband and I and it's a hobby we share. We have a cat and two dogs who are our children. We absolutely love Austin and continue to explore all it has to offer.
My favorite things to cook
I'm a fan of baking. I love to make cookies, especially when the husband loves them, and although I don't do it too often since it's just the two of us, I love to make cakes and pies. I've grown into loving cooking as well, as I used to be intimidated by it. My husband and I are always trying new foods.
My cooking triumphs
Slowly increasing the difficulty of the things we make has been exciting. I also like creating more complex dishes as well.
My cooking tragedies
I forgot to sprinkle powdered sugar onto a towel when I was rolling a pumpkin roll. Never forget to sprinkle the powdered sugar! I fell apart so we did surgery on it. Still tasted great but it definitely wasn't going in any magazine.

Oreo® Cookie Cake
This is so great if you don't have a ton of time to get creative for a dessert dish. And even though it's got pretty usual ingredients, that won't hold back the amount of rave reviews you'll get. I made it once for the office and I had people asking to make it again, and people asking for the recipe. As I am sure it has been mentioned, you can have fun and tweak it with different flavored/colored oreos as well as different flavors of pudding. Have fun!

Swedish Chocolate Balls (or Coconut Balls)
These are wonderful, but dangerous!! I can pop way too many in too short of time in my mouth. They're great for potlucks and I always get rave reviews. Save only a few for yourself at home because you'll find yourself popping one in your mouth every time you walk by :)

Eggnog Cheesecake III
I made this last year and am just going through all my recipes for the holidays again. I got a TON of rave reviews on this cheesecake. Everyone loved it and asked if it was store bought. I recommend if you want a cheesecake that's amazing! From what I remember, I made no changes and stuck with the directions exactly as laid out.
