About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I really enjoy baking desserts, my favorites to bake are cheesecake, cookies, brownies, and pies.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My favorite family cooking traditions are making homemade tamales and homemade flour tortillas.
My cooking triumphs
Growing up I had a heck of a time making gravy and bread. My gravy always turned out lumpy and my bread always turned out hard as a rock. Now I can make a killer gravy and the lightest softest breads.
My cooking tragedies
Lemon meringue pie. I tried to cook this six or seven times years ago and every time I made it the lemon part would turn out soupy. I paid extra attention to making sure the seal between the lemon and meringue was closed but apparently not good enough. Since then I haven't bothered making lemon meringue pie.

Soft Pretzels I
These didn't turn out the way I wanted them to, and they didn't have a great pretzel flavor to me.

Meringue Mushrooms
This recipe didn't quite work out for me but I know if I made the recipe again they would turn out perfectly.
