Sugar Cookie Drops
About this Cook
Besides cooking, I love shopping, watching tv, going to movies and being with friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
I love baking and making creative desserts without chocolate. I like chocolate but it's not one of my faves. I love exotic foods and lots of spice.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mum was from Dominica and made lots of West Indian food. Just the smell of her kitchen takes me back to when I was a little girl.
My cooking triumphs
The time I cooked for 50 people for my DH's family reunion. On my birthday. Everyone raving about my lemon birthday cake was gift enough that day.
My cooking tragedies
When I was little I made a chocolate cake from a mix. I wanted to frost it and didn't have the ingredients so I used chocolate pudding thinking it was a valid substitute. It promptly soaked into the cake and made a horrible mess. YUCK!

Mushroom Pie
So good! I used portobello mushrooms and added a bit more cheese. I also used a regular pie crust (that I made myself) because I forgot to get puff. Really great! My family said to add more bacon LOL! Tastes like what you'd get in a pub with gravy and nice salad. A definite keeper. Thanks!

Sy's Challah
One word: YUM. I made these for Shabbat today and got 2 absolutely perfect loaves. I even forgot them on the counter and went shopping for 2 hours. When I got home I brushed on the egg wash and put them in the oven with no problem at all. The only thing is that next time I'd add another teaspoon of salt to the dough. Thank you so much for this!

Best Big, Fat, Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookie
Best. Cookies. Ever. My daughter just took the recipe out of my recipe book and brought it to school without telling me. The whole family loves them. Thanks!
