About this Cook
I went to school for hotel and restaurant management and realized the second year in that I prefer the cooking classes. I started cooking at home all of the time and cooking for my family. The cookbooks piled up. I then got into baking. I have expiramented with breads, cakes, and pastries. I just love the kitchen, especially when it is clean!
My favorite things to cook
Lately I have enjoyed cooking and experimenting with homestyle Japanese cuisine, and I am still keeping up with my baking. I love to make spicy, flavorful sauces for Mexican food (the sauce for chile rellenos is my favorite), and I'm a natural at Italian as well. I absolutely love making any soup I can, especially in the fall, my favorite cooking/baking season.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We do a lot of grilling when it gets warm. Although I don't eat meat, I enjoy experamenting with veggie marinades and cooking my own veggies and patties on the grill. I also enjoy just being outside with my family drinking quality beer.
My cooking triumphs
This morning I made the best cinnamon rolls I have ever made. If you are looking for a recipe, use Cinnamon Rolls I on this site and look for my review.
My cooking tragedies
I lived in University dorms in China for a little while and there was only a hotplate to cook on. I couldn't stand not cooking, so i had to try it. There were so many burnt tragedies to name; I don't want to get into it.

Magic Peanut Butter Middles
This recipe is surprisingly similar to the Better Homes and Gardens recipe that I've been using for years.

Apple Spice Cake
This had a great flavor! I also made a streussel to put on top and baked it in mini loaf pans. It was delicious. Nice and spicy and good apple flavor!
