About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
New things!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Mom used to bake the best stuff. Apple Crisp, Strawberry Rhubarb Custard Pie. Even Green Tomato jam I'm told.
My cooking triumphs
Tortelini soup. Got the recipe from Kraft's What's Cooking magazine (free subscription on the net) Everyone loved it and my boyfriend always asks me to make it.
My cooking tragedies
I was baking a cake that I had made to perfection once before (it even looked like the picture!) and as I was pouring the batter into the tin I noticed it was really thick... oh well I thought, into the oven. Only later did I realise I forgot to add the 2.5 cups of water.2nd batch here we come! Both tasted fine actually, the waterless one was more brownieish.

Chewy Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
Great recipe! Followed the instructions and used what chips I had (mini chocolate chips) and turned out amazing. Saving this one for later for sure! Next time I might try to swap out the butter for even more peanutbutter!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
I really love the taste of this recipe, but I do have a bit of an issue with it. The batter is waaaayyy too much like cake and it doesn't spread in my pan. Also, I'm not sure if it's me or the batter, but it's very hard to find the perfect temperature to cook these so they are not burnt, or raw. I've tried to increase the milk and decrease the baking powder, but I just can't seem to find a consistency that I like. Anyone have any ideas? Also, would like to ask, the melted butter, when I pour it into the liquid mixture, it solidifies again because of the cold milk and eggs. Is this supposed to happen? Why not just put room temperature butter in? Thanks!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
On the back of the peanut butter jar :) Mine however says 1/2 cup sugar and they still taste great. Only thing is they are fairly gooey so I wouldn't suggest rolling them in your hands. Just plop onto a sheet with a spoon. I made jumbo ones so I got about 6 of them with a smaller left over cookie :P
