About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
When I was 15 years old my mom said we were getting company and I should try baking some pies for dessert. I baked a lovely strawberry and peach pie. The recipe called for the fruit to be layered on the bottom of the pan, a flour mixture sprinkled on top of it and all of this is covered with a crust. I even cut little pieces of dough to resemble strawberries and peaches and placed them on top of each pie. They looked amazing. After they were done and the crust beautifully browned I cut into one to serve it and realized I had forgotten to sprinkle the flour mixture over the fruit. It was a soggy mess! I was mortified. I'll never forget that pie making experience.

Black Magic Cake
This cake recipe was originally posted on the Hershey's website where I printed it off more than 16 years ago. The website no longer exists but thank God the recipe still does. I have encased mine in a protective plastic cover because it is the most used recipe in the house. I have to make it for every birthday (6). The secret is to only bake it for 33 minutes if you are using round pans. Anything more than that and it will be dry. Allow to cool completely before removing from pans.

Chef John's Baked Mushroom Risotto
I have made this exactly like Chef John in the video twice now. My husband and I love it. It will become a weekly meal.

Mini Frittatas
These were surprisingly bland. My fiancé did not care for them. I added some hot salsa and thought it tasted ok. I'll add more seasoning next time.
