About this Cook
I'm married, have a slew of furry animals, and love autumn. By day I am a teacher assistant at Head Start, by night I'm a cooking FOOL! :)
My favorite things to cook
I've just discovered the joy of making bread by hand. I love making pizza, stir fry, and desserts. I also love cake decorating, but I'm not as good at that as I'd like to be...
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't really have any. I keep trying to get my grandmothers recipe for her yeast rolls, but she won't give it up. :(
My cooking triumphs
A three tiered wedding cake for my sister-in-law's wedding this year. Also, the Hawaiian Bread recipe I got off this site created a stir among my friends and family. They couldn't get enough! I think I made a loaf for EVERYONE!
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at hot dog buns was tragic. Also, I made an ice cream cake once that was a puddle by the time I got it where it was going...

Bread Machine Pizza Dough
WOW WOW WOW!! I've tried DOZENS of pizza dough recipes looking for that perfect one, and I finally found it. The beer is what makes this recipe so good, and that's coming from someone who HATES beer! This dough is very yeasty and rises up very nicely. I followed the advice of a few other reviews and pre-baked for about 5 mins, though I could have probably done longer. I brushed it with mushroom and sage infused olive oil beforehand. YUM! Also, I made one 12 inch pizza on my pizza stone and the crust was very thick and soft. I easily could have made two pizzas with thinner crusts. And to think, all I did was throw everything in the bread maker! I WILL be making this recipe again and again and again!

Chocolate-Hazelnut Spread Cookies
Oh, wow... These cookies came out PERFECT! Chewy and delicious!! I was a little concerned about them spreading, so I smooshed them down just a tad before baking. SOOOOO GOOD!!!
