Pumpkin Cake I
About this Cook
I am a mother of two, who works part time as a personal chef. I love exploring different ethnic cuisine as well as regional American dishes. As a personal chef I try to put a healthy spin on traditional dishes.
My favorite things to cook
Too many to list!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family always cooks a mexican feast for Christmas instead of a the traditional Christmas dinner. Not sure how that tradition got started. We're not even Mexican :P
My cooking triumphs
Cooking a traditional Thanksgiving dinner for 12 people, completely from scatch, all by myself. Turkey, gravy, garlic chive mashed potatoes, sourdough dressing, green bean casserole (with fresh green beans and portabello mushrooms) broccoli cauliflower gratin, cranberry orange relish, sweet potato crisp, chocolate pecan pie, and pumpkin cheesecake with gingersnap crust.
My cooking tragedies
Don't know if I've had any "tragedies", but I did try makeing a Beer Float once.........not good. My husband still makes fun of that idea.

Cream Cheese Pound Cake I
Amazing! The best pound cake I've ever had! I made it exactly as directed and it turned out absolutely perfect! I love the soft, delicate texture of the inside contrasted with the the almost meringue-like texture of the crust when it's fresh out of the oven. And the vanilla almond flavor is out of the world! I know I'll be making this again and again! I can't wait to try it with lemon and orange flavors!

Roasted Beets and Sauteed Beet Greens
Roasted beats were ok but lacked flavor. I did not like the sauteed beet greens.
