About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake and decorate cookies and cupcakes, but don't like having them around the house because they won't really get eaten. I need someone to donate baked goods to! I also like making soup and am happy when I find a good tofu recipe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like making kolaches with my grandma. My aunt and I used to make cookies together when I'd stay at her house. Now my daughter likes to help me out with everything I cook, but especially pancakes and cookies.
My cooking triumphs
I just made the most awesome cake in the world for my daughter's birthday. I also make a mean loaf of bread.
My cooking tragedies
Many cakes have been abandoned before decorating when one half comes out of the pan and the other half decides to stay put. The first time I tried to cook tofu was a total wreck. I had no idea what to do, had never eaten it before, and ended up with a flavorless, mushy mess. Luckily I can cook tofu like a champ now. A champ, I say!

Whole Wheat Pumpkin-Applesauce Muffins
I left out the pecans and added currants and cranberries instead of raisins. Delicious!

Fresh Tomato Salsa
This is now my go-to salsa recipe; we are done with the jarred stuff. I threw it all into the food processor and it was done in 30 seconds. I made two changes, based on the reviews I read: I added a clove of garlic and reduced the number of peppers to two (although I might do three next time.)

Zucchini Brownies
These are really good! My five year old has decided that they are "the best brownies EVER!" I did add more water when I was mixing, because my batter was really dry. I just added a little bit of water at a time, until all of the flour and cocoa was moistened. I also didn't put frosting on them, although I might next time. I have to admit, I wasn't very thrilled with them on the night that I made them, but I had one the next day and changed my mind. These are great!
