About this Cook
My name is Heather, and I'm 20 years old. I never liked cooking, I used to be afraid of the oven and the stove, I always burned myself somehow. Lol. But recently, I've gotten a fascination with cooking and mostly baking. I used to bake cookies with my Dad all the time, and I did once recently for a barbeque. All by myself, and I did it from scratch. I didn't have time to taste them, and I had to rush over to where I was going, but when everyone kept telling me how delicious they were, I had to try. And they were great! So since then I've been trying to cook anything I can. Lol.
My favorite things to cook
My expertise is in cookies, cake, and pancakes so far. But I'm getting broader and better with time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I used to bake cookies with my Dad all the time, since there wasn't much that we could really do. My Dad's cookies were always the best, but he's too busy to make them now, so now mine are the best!
My cooking triumphs
I made cookies for my boyfriend and his work friends with protein powder to give them a boost of energy throughout the day. They're contractors so they need their strength throughout the day. His boss is a dentist, and he's moving his office. So my boyfriend, Pat, asked him if he needed a new secretary, and when he mentioned me, his boss said, "Are you kidding? With her cookies, and her cake... She's a keeper, she's hired!"
My cooking tragedies
I tasted a very good snack at a church group that I wanted to try. They're called congo bars. I followed a recipe on here, and brought them to my church, but the recipe was horrible, so they weren't that good. The less picky people still liked them, but those who know me better said I could do better. But, next time I make them I know how to make them better.

Buffalo Chicken Wing Sauce
I thought it was good. left out the cayenne cuz I'm n ot crazy about it super spicy. But without it it still has a kick. Nice and mild kind of spicy. Husband loved it!

Heavenly White Cake
I'm not a fan of white cake and i loved this cake. I didn't even get it quite right and I loved it. Gave it five stars cuz I know if I had done the meringue right it would have been even better. Awesome recipe, will definitely use over and over!

Claudia's Yummy Frosting for Cakes and Cupcakes
I made exactly as it said and to me it was too sweet. Also, if you don't want to color it, you need to use the clear vanilla extract. Otherwise it turns a weird looking dirty white. It's good for people who like overly sweet things, but personally, I won't use it again.
