About this Cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking big weekend breakfasts and making ginger bread houses with my kids and our friends at Christmastime.
My cooking tragedies
I once made flourless, black bean brownies that were a disaster. Unfortunately I took them into a work potluck before I tried them myself. It has been ten years and my husband still loves to tease me about it.

Cheesecake Bars
I made these in a 11x7 pan and I cut them into 24 servings. They were small peices and thin but that made them easier to eat like a bar cookie rather than a piece of cheesecake. In that regard, this was exactly what I was looking for. I also made a blueberry topping to go with and they were fantastic.

Marshmallow Fondant
I had tons of trouble with this! It was terribly sticky and difficult to work with. I have melted marshmellow everywhere! LOL. And what was I suppoed to do with the buuter? Is the entire 1/4 C for my hands or was it supposed to be added to the melted marshmellows?

Saltine Toffee Cookies
I made these over the weekend and read the reviews afterwards. Apparently I did everything wrong according to the reviews but they still turned out great!! I subbed maragarine for the butter, used LIGHT brown sugar and walnuts instread of pecans. And I stirred the butter and sugar while it was boiling! LOL. Maybe I got lucky, but the end result was fantastic and they were gobbled up quickly. Mine were a tad sticky but I tossed them in ground almonds and that took care of it. I will try them again with real butter and dark brown sugar and see if there is a difference.
