About this Cook
I'm a woman with rather traditional tastes and values. My dream is to someday have a bed and breakfast and I'm constantly testing recipes with that goal in mind.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake breads and cookies. I'm always trying new dessert recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
There is no family tradition that sticks out in my mind as much as Thanksgiving dinner. I've been collecting Thanksgiving recipes to host a large dinner for all of our family and friends here in Belgium.
My cooking triumphs
I have modified a couple basic recipes until they seem nearly perfected. My Whole Wheat Baklava completely vanishes and I have a hard time keeping up with the orders for more of my Chai Tea drink mix.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I was to meet my ex-inlaws, I tried cooking Angel Food cupcakes to share. Unfortunately these cupcakes turned out to be the most rubbery cupcakes that have ever existed. I learned the hard way to make sure I always taste what I cook before serving it to anyone else.

Yummy Sweet Potato Casserole
This is the first sweet potato casserole I've ever tried. I served it to 5 people who had never tasted sweet potatoes before and everyone loved it, so I'll definately be making this again.

Amazingly Good Eggnog
I followed the recipe to the letter. I didn't put the rum in until after I'd split the egg nog into two bowls so the kids and Grandpa (who doesn't drink) could have some as well. I didn't listen to the recipe regarding how much rum to put in, I just added it a little at a time until it tasted right to me. Everybody loves it. Excellent recipe!
