Fondue by Me :)
About this Cook
I am 23 years old and a 2nd grade teacher in Frederick County, Maryland. I just got married to Jonathan on November 3rd, 2007. We dated for 5 and a half years before finally getting hitched and getting an apartment together. He honestly cooks more than I do, but he's not the recipe type. He likes to hunt and fish, so I'll be looking for recipes for venison, trout, and all the other wonderful things he brings home!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking just about anything. I especially love recipes with few ingredients... at least while I'm getting started. I also love to bake and make candy. I love Japanese food and soon hope to get into making sushi at home. I am a big fan of hot beverages, especially those I can make and be proud of.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My one grandmother makes AMAZING macaroni and cheese... and also scalloped potatoes. She hasn't taught me yet, but before the wedding she's going to show me all her secrets! She's the type to just throw things together and have it be very comfort-foodish. Always the same things, always food I trust and feel comfortable with. My other grandmother cooks WONDERFULLY too, I especially love her mashed potatoes. She pays great attention to detail and is really into kitchen gadgets and such. Her side dishes are always the best... she does a great variety.
My cooking triumphs
I made an amazing fondue meal once for my fiance and I. We had cheese fondue, followed by cooking our raw meat in the pot, then a chocolate fondue desert. We spent a couple of hours enjoying the great food and each others' company.
My cooking tragedies
I was once baking for a "bake sale" fundraiser my friends and I were doing for Multiple Sclerosis. Everything I tried to bake turned out horrible. My cookies were crumbly, my biscotti stuck to the baking sheet, and I dropped my lovely zucchini bread on the kitchen floor. So I cried, and my grandmother stepped in and baked everything for us. Haha.

Apple Banana Cupcakes
Delicious! I had to rate it right away. We ate some straight out of the oven. I followed the recipe for measurements but I had to change a few things because of what I had in the house. Used old frozen bananas that I'd let thaw over night in the fridge, and since I wanted to use all three, it was more than a cup of bananas. I left the "juice" in from those, too. I shredded the apples with a box grater (easier than I thought it'd be.) I used granny smith apples. I used butter-flavored shortening since that's all we had. Didn't have vanilla (what?!?!) so I used almond extract and a tiny bit of cinnamon extract since the almond was gone too. We also had no buttermilk, so I used a tablespoon of vinegar and filled to 1 cup of milk in a measuring cup, then let that sit 5 minutes and used 1/4 of it. Seemed weird, but our "cupcakes" turned out awesome! They were perfect after 22 minutes. Perfectly moist, as well. The ones in my baking stone muffin pan were perfect, the ones in the tin didn't rise as much. I had two 3 year olds help with this, and they loved it and loved the end result, too! Going to hit the store and make some caramel-like frosting for them to finish them tomorrow evening :) I really hope these are as amazing cooled and day-old as they were tonight (I think they will be!)

Mom's Zucchini Bread
I followed advice of some reviewers, and when I shared this bread with friends, they couldn't believe I made it myself. They thought for sure it was from a bakery or something like that. Wonderful :) Now I just need to buy more loaf pans so I can make more than 2 loaves at a time.

Glo's Sausage Fried Rice
I made this WITHOUT the sausage because we were using it as a side dish for pork-chops. It was delicious, just the flavor I wanted. It really does make a LOT, but I went ahead with the full recipe because I knew it'd be a good left-over for packing in lunches. I actually had to make it in two batches because we didn't have a wok or a skillet big enough for the whole mess! Great fried rice! Reminds me of the Japanese steak house!
