About this Cook
Age 31 married mom to two adorable toddlers. Currently working towards my nursing degree I love spend my free time with my family or cooking/baking. I love Top Chef and Hell's Kitchen and always get inspired while the shows are on! My mom is an excellent cook and I learned most of what I know from her.
My favorite things to cook
For now I'll say dessert because I think that is what I'm really good at. My cheesecake and poundcake is the best!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our Thanksgiving day stuffing. It is a MUST have. When I was 18 my dad was in the hospital during Thanksgiving. My Mom had already bought all the items for the dinner so my sisters and I didn't want to let it all go to waste so I made almost the entire dinner myself from memory and from that year on my mom has stepped aside so I could cook...I've been doing it ever since!
My cooking triumphs
Thanksgiving dinner, pot roast, ckn ala king to name a few family faves
My cooking tragedies
My first cheesecake was very undercooked even though I followed the recipe...I can't think of any others really.

Waffles I
I separated and whipped the egg whites, doubled the vanilla, and used less baking powder and oil. Nice recipe!

Supreme Strawberry Topping
Easy, fast, and you can use with SO many things! I double it for a cheesecake because it goes so fast!

New York Cheesecake III
This is everything a cheesecake should be! My first wasn't nearly done enough so I cook it twice as long as it states. It tastes its best after sitting in the fridge a day, so you may want to plan ahead. I use a simple cracker crust recipe instead and I've now become the "cheesecake woman" in the family. My brother in law didn't previously like cheesecake until I made this one. My Mom said its better than Eli's or Cheesecake factory. It is dense you can easily serve 12 using one cake. I make a strawberry puree and whipped cream on top. WOW.
