About this Cook
I am an elementary teacher/mom that above all else LOVES her kids. I am happiest doing any activity that lets me be with my family. Teaching my two young sons how to cook is one of my favorite pasttimes.
My favorite things to cook
I am BY FAR a better baker than cook. I enjoy creating pastries, cakes, candies and cookies and passing them out to friends and family. My skills are often requested for fancy desserts for many celebratory functions and events.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I have to say I don't have many fond memories of cooking as a child. My mom did her best with our limited budget, but my sister and I were very picky eaters. I guess the memories I am making now with my boys would have to be my favorites.
My cooking triumphs
Cheesecake. I tried for YEARS to make a decent cheesecake and finally (thanks to Muffy's Cheesecake Supreme on this website--BLESS YOU!!), I have succeeded.
My cooking tragedies
Oh, dear. There have been many. The worst was baking a batch of brownies with my younger sister when I was about 15 or so. I had been told to wait to take them out of the oven when they cracked across the top. Well, they never did and 2 1/2 hours later we had a brick instead of a pan. The whole thing had to get thrown away. Mom was less than thrilled with us and I STILL get ribbed every time I make brownies!
