About this Cook
My favorite thing to do is bake. When I come home from a long day at work, I'd rather bake something than relax. When I am relaxing, I have my laptop and am surfing the net (usually for new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake! When someone requests a baked item, I can't say no. Unfortunately, my kids think they need a sweet dessert every night after dinner. I'm trying to find things that are sweet yet healthier than the usual cookies, brownies, and cakes.
My cooking triumphs
There are a few things that get requested often from my husband's and my coworkers. I'm so happy that I make something that's memorable and people actually want!
My cooking tragedies
I've had many! One of my first times making bread, my brother-in-law came over. I looked for the bread, and I found it on the floor being used as a doorstop! It was hard as a rock. Another time, I made something called Frosted Bars, which were no bake cereal bars. My mother-in-law had typed the recipe for me. On the same page, she had typed a recipe for frosting. I figured that went on the cereal bars. Well, they had nothing to do with each other. My husband took one bite and exclaimed that something was seriously wrong. We called my mother-in-law, and got a good laugh!

Jamaican Tortilla Soup
This was delicious! I made it exactly according to the recipe, and it was wonderful. I was still expecting the Mexican flavor because that's all I've ever had, but this was a great surprise. Can't wait to have it again!

Creamy Yogurt Hummus
Love this! Mine wasn't runny at all. I added a little tahini but followed the recipe exactly otherwise. It was different than I'm used to, which I loved. I'll be making this again.

Hariton's 'Famous' Vegetarian Casserole
These were WONDERFUL! My entire family devoured them. Unfortunately, I only made 4 servings because I'm the only one who usually eats veggies. I'm making them again tomorrow!
