About this Cook
Cooking for my family which includes two little girls. Love to make fancy things, but no time at the moment.
My favorite things to cook
Crockpot meals, appetizers, salads, desserts :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband makes latkes the first day of Hanukkah each year. We make a lot of homemade hot chocolate in the winter, and we grill a lot in the summer.
My cooking triumphs
Chili- everyone loves my chili :)
My cooking tragedies
The first million times I tried to make cookies, I failed horribly. I think it must have been the humid environment and the lack of skill. I still can't make bread by hand, but luckily I do okay with a bread machine now!

Gluten Free Danish
The only thing missing is the flaky texture that a glutenous danish would have; this one is a bit dense. Taste is great though!! Definitely a recipe worth playing around with!

Ultimate Chocolate Chip Cookies
Made these with GF flour mix and subbed 1/2 c honey for brown sugar and they still turned out puffy, beautiful, and delicious. Great recipe!
