About this Cook
I teach English in the Baltimore City School district. Cooking and baking help me decompress.
My favorite things to cook
cakes, cookies, pies, breads, fish
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother always makes "football chicken" on football season Sundays. It's a great homey dish that can be put together by the end of half-time and finished cooking before the game is over. Every year, my mother-in-law buys me a new high-end kitchen gadget for Christmas. This year it was a Kitchenaid Stand Mixer. There's a coconut pound cake in the oven right now...
My cooking triumphs
My first Christmas turkey. My sister's french silk chocolate pie.
My cooking tragedies
Oh god. Please don't ask me to make rice...

Dark Chocolate Cake I
Wow! This cake is amazing. Dense and rich and moist, not too crumbly, not to heavy. Perfect! I did substitute 1/2 cup of the water for 1/2 cup Chambord Raspberry liquor in order to make a dark chocolate raspberry cake and it worked out perfectly. In my opinion, this was the perfect substitution as the cake remains primarily chocolately but with a delicate raspberry finish. I also used dutch processed cocoa.

Chocolate Frosting I
Lovely! Creamy, rich, easy to work with. I'm not sure how much sugar I actually used, though. I just kept pouring it out of the box until the consistency was right. Will definitely make again!
