About this Cook
I'm pretty much your average girl who happens to like to bake.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake mostly. Cakes, cookies, muffins, you name it, I bake it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year on St. Patrick's Day, my mom makes corned beef and cabbage with boiled potatoes, turnips, and carrots. I love that tradition, because it reminds us of our Irish background.
My cooking triumphs
I made artichoke dip, by combining two recipes I found on this site, for Thanksgiving one year, and with how much it made to such a small amount of people, I was surprised by the end of the night when the bowl was clean!
My cooking tragedies
I hadn't ever made peanut butter cookies before, so one day I decided I would try baking some. Well, the recipe must have asked for not enough sugar, because I followed the recipe to a tee, but the cookies were WAY too salty and very crunchy. No one in my family could stand them.

Heavenly White Cake
AMAZING!! This was the best cake I've made, which is saying a lot, because I've made so many. Not only did it taste good, but the texture was perfect. It was light and fluffy. I will definitely be using this again.
