About this Cook
Ever since reading the book, Transfats - The Hidden Killer in our Food, I make a lot of my own food at home using only the best ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, and other baked treats
My cooking triumphs
When my first attempt at Cheesecake turned out quite tasty! It makes me feel good about my cooking when people tell me I should open a bakery.

Bacon and Bourbon Thanksgiving Stuffing
This recipe turned out to be some of the best stuffing I've ever had. The fact that it's home made from scratch makes it even better. In regards to the broth/bourbon, I only mixed together 1 Qt of broth and 1/2 cup bourbon and didn't use all of it and it turned out perfect. I also didn't add back ALL of the bacon grease. Delicious and highly recommend!

Dark Chocolate Cake II
Moist and delicious!! I've found reading reviews is a must for this site. I followed the suggestion of using buttermilk instead of milk & delete vinegar and also used two 9" round pans. I used the choc cheese frosting recipe by Carol and used the "Expert Chocolate Mousse" recipe as filling. Unbelievably delicious and received many kudos! Great chocolate cake recipe!

Blueberry Cheesecake
Incredibly good!! I used Peggy Ellender's tips on cheesecake making and NO cracks, amazing crust, and followed recipe as is. Graham cracker crust is baked for 10 min. @ 350. Cool before pouring in cheesecake mixture. For cooking, I didn't try to wrap Springform pan w/foil, I put a cookie sheet with water in it on the bottom rack, and preheated to 350 (same as crust), turn to 250 soon as cheesecake goes in for 1.5 hrs. Turn off and leave in oven (door closed) for 3 hours for slow cooling. Refrigerate, then before serving, add blueberries. I used way more than 1/3 cup jelly! This is an AMAZINGLY good recipe and 3rd time I followed above. Store bought quality with ALL organic ingredients. MMMmmm MMM
