About this Cook
My husband and I are both vegetarian. We're always experimenting to find tasty, healthy vegetarian meals for our family.
My favorite things to cook
Anything vegetarian! I love to experiment and have fun in the kitchen. Baking is my favorite, but I enjoy cooking dinner every night, too.
My favorite family cooking traditions
For the first day of autumn, I make some cider on the stovetop along with some of the chocolate chip pumpkin bread (The recipe is on allrecipes.com. Delicious!). I love making pumpkin-everything in September and October. Every winter, I pick a day to bake Christmas cookies with my friends and husband. We bake up a storm and package the best ones to ship off to family around the country.
My cooking tragedies
Spice cookies! Oh, allrecipes, how you failed me on this one! They smelled so delicious, but they cooled into a form indistinguishable from hockey pucks.

My Nancy's Pizzelles
I don't really care for the traditional anise pizzelles, but these cinnamon ones are really good. I used butter instead of margarine, and I halved the recipe. It's perfect as is, but, next time, I might try sprinkling them with a powdered sugar & cinnamon mixture that another reviewer recommended.

Key Lime Pie VII
This recipe is really simple. I've made it twice now, and it's come out perfectly every time. One of the top reviews says the 3 cups of sweetened condensed milk is "about" 2 cans. Well, it's closer to 2.5 cans. That cost me an extra trip to the store!

Fluffy White Frosting
This frosting is so good, soft, and fluffy! It tastes like marshmallows. I wanted enough to frost 24 cupcakes. This recipe has 12 servings, so I wanted to at least double it. I ended up tripling it to make sure I had enough, and that was a big mistake! I had so much frosting, that it was at the top of my mixing bowl! I was taking some of it out to be able to whip the rest. It was a big mess. I'm assuming it was because I had such a full bowl that I couldn't get stiff peaks. I whipped and whipped that sucker, but I never got more than soft peaks. After about 20 minutes of beating, I worried the egg whites would separate, so I just called it good. The frosting was still delicious and held its shape somewhat.
