About this Cook
37 year old Pharmacy tech that loves to cook but hates to clean up. :) Never married but has a very hungry boyfriend who likes new things to tempt his palette.

Mine didn't taste very good, so we'll put it down to baker-error. They felt like they were missing something (mostly taste).
