About this Cook
I'm a born and bred Kansas girl. I'm a college student majoring in Art History. I made my first apple pie at age 11 and I've been a serious baker and amateur gourmet cook ever since. I love creating theme menus and challenging myself by trying out new and interesting recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love the finickiness of baking and I love trying out new appetizer and dip recipes. I've recently made my 3rd Thanksgiving turkey and I think I have it mastered :) What I really enjoy cooking and eating are unpretentious, comfort-type foods.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I come from a long line of great home cooks on both sides of my family. My mom has been making amazing chicken and noodles on Sunday afternoon for as long as I can remember.
My cooking triumphs
Apple Pie, of course! Also my Thanksgiving turkeys.
My cooking tragedies
Fortunately I haven't really had a notable cooking tragedy yet... that probably means I'm due for one :(

Marinated Cheese
This was a huge hit as an appetizer at Thanksgiving. I marinated it overnight and then poured off a little of the oil before plating it up. Gorgeous presentation and great flavor. I will definitely be making this again... maybe even as soon as Christmas Eve :) Oh... and to those that were having trouble with slicing up the cream cheese, I would recommend using a piece of dental floss instead of a knife.
