About this Cook
I'm a country girl growing up in Southern Utah. I cook for my family all the time because I just love to. I've been cooking since I was about 5 or 6 helping my mom in the kitchen. I like to be adventurous with the foods I create. I've been vegetarian for 5 years, but the rest of my family is not, so cooking for everyone can be a challenge. I am very active I love playing volleyball, and playing my violin, but I love my kitchen best!
My favorite things to cook
I am more of a baker than anything else. I love making specialty desserts, although I'll can make other things pretty well. My favorites are cheesecake, chocolate lava cake, lemon meringue, creme brulee, any kind of mousse, cookies, cupcakes, baklava, basically anything you bake!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I always love Christmas and Thanksgiving. Doesn't everyone? There are so many different foods that are so fun to make and enjoy sharing with your family and friends. I always think Thanksgiving in interesting because at my house, we have a turkey, and tofurkey because my mom and I are vegetarian.

Peanut Butter Bars I
I loved this recipe! It was very quick and easy, and it tastes great! I used natural peanut butter and because of the natural oils in it, I only used 1/2 cup of butter. Turned out fabulous! Thanks!

I made this for my family, just to try something new out, and now they ask for it all the time! This is a winner!
