About this Cook
I have been cooking since I was 10. The first thing I made was split pea soup for my mom (because it was her favorite). I live in England now with my awesome British husband. I definitely love introducing new food to my in-laws and gauging their reaction to Thanksgiving :)
My favorite things to cook
Rosemary potatos!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Nana was Danish so I am learning to carry on the family traditions.
My cooking tragedies
Mistaking granulated sugar for confectioners sugar when I made frosting the first time. Threw the whole glob out and realized what I needed to do.

Sweet Potato Pie I
Great pie! I baked my potato before I mixed it up, a different flavor, but very good! I would reduce the sugar by 1/3. p.s. substitute 1 tsp of the flour in the crust with either a tsp of cinnamon or allspice

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Very good recipe, I've added extra chocolate chips instead of nuts, and used 1/4 c of bread flour instead of all purpose flour. Butter can be reduced, I found that if you half the butter and just add an egg white instead, it turns out wonderfully.
