About this Cook
I love cooking and seeing those I love thrilled with what I make. I've had Rheumatoid Arthritis since I was 14, so I've learned a lot of cooking shortcuts to save my hands -some of which don't work (see "Cooking Disasters). I enjoy trying new recipes from AllRecipes as well as cooking family staples.

My Mom and I have "Cookie Mayhem" every year about a week or so before New Year's Eve. We spend the whole day making Kiffli and many other cookies. I look forward to it every year!
My cooking triumphs

Party Mimosa
What a wonderful mimosa! I didn't add water, but didn't miss it. I used dry champagne because I didn't want it to be too sweet. I also only had apricot juice on hand and it was delicious. Next time, I will try mango.

Like another reviewer, I followed the recipe, but it turned out "grainy." I used this recipe because I mistakenly bought coconut milk instead of coconut cream. I had added a can of condensed milk instead of the sugar, but I don't think that was what made it grainy. It seems like it is some of the solids from the coconut milk perhaps? Maybe I didn't use the right kind of strainer? Regardless, I wasn't pleased with the recipe unfortunately.

White Chocolate and Cranberry Cookies
What a yummy cookie! I did cut back slightly on the sugar the second time I made them. I want to try them with nuts and a sprinkle of orange zest. Terrific, easy recipe.
