About this Cook
I am currently studying Culinary Arts and Baking/Pastry. I have been cooking since I was a little kid and have always had a love for food.
My favorite things to cook
I love making breads, cheesecakes, creme brulee, and anything Italian. I'm still working on the chocolate and candy making. I've also wanted to try and take up beer and wine making sometime. I guess you could say that I want to open myself up to all areas of the culinary field.
My favorite family cooking traditions
The fall and Christmas are the biggest times for me to be baking. So much going on at that time and people wanting stuff for bake sales or family events. Even friends ask for special stuff. Baking breads, cheesecakes and cookies are the biggest thing for me. I've really have thought about starting a catering business.
My cooking triumphs
10/16/11 Today I had a bread with dry active yeast work out for me for the first time. I also made Guinness Beer Bread for the first time.
My cooking tragedies
10/17/11 Tonight I was making a white wine sauce, and didn't realize until it was to late that cooked it for to long. I scrambled the egg. I tried it again after cleaning up the mess and it came out better. This time I kept a close eye on it and eliminated the egg.

I am trying this recipe with all my left overs like the peels and cores. We will see how it turns out.

Sarah's Applesauce
I used the advice Reviewed on Mar. 8, 2007 by Jules and doubled the recipe and cooked it in my slow cooker for 3-4 hrs. I peeled the apples and tossed them in the cinnamon and sugar and then added them to the slow cooker before cooking. Then I also added a dash of ground cloves just for fun. This recipe is so easy in the slow cooker and the taste is wonderful.

Buttery Herb Wine Sauce
It was definitely salty. I recommend not using the 1 tsp of salt and cutting back on the broth. Maybe 3/4 cup of broth or find a low sodium broth. Other than it being salty, i would also leave out the egg, nless you are quick at making this. This recipe is very time sensitive. If your not quick about adding the egg and watching it on a very low heat, the egg will scramble. The taste is great, just a little too salty.
