About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
- baklava - my most requested 'dish' - cheesecakes - appetizers - especially dips - most baked desserts - but nothing with meringue -- yuck
My cooking triumphs
Everything I make is a triumph! Ha. But I am most pleasantly surprised by the ongoing success of my baklava. I also started making kick-a$$ cheesecake after following the tips on the website.
My cooking tragedies
DRY red velvet cake. I think I've solved that problem, though.

Mom's Pineapple-Carrot Cake
it tastes great (apparently; i've never eaten it but have made it for friends), but overflows the bundt pan EVERY TIME. if i didn't get requests, i wouldn't have made it again. for some reason i didn't make a note of the overflow after the first time. i haven't come up with a solution other than to pour some batter into a loaf pan. bottom line: great flavour, but be prepared for the excess.

Peanut Butter Bars I
These taste - and smell! - great. I found the bottom layer to be too mushy. They were fine straight out of the freezer, but that's not a realistic way to serve them if you're bringing them to a party where they're apt to sit on a tray. Maybe I'll try less butter next time...

Bacon and Tomato Cups
i don't eat red meat or dairy - but enjoy cooking for those who do - so i didn't actually try these. however, they were a HUGE hit the first time i made them. i ended up giving away the filling i had left over and wrote down the recipe for six people. they were the first appetizer to disappear at the last party i brought them to and have been raved about every time i've made them.
