About this Cook
I LOVE to cook and I love to cook for people. I cannot wait to finish school so I can play more with food!
My favorite things to cook
Desserts...I love to get creative.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandma's home-made bread - it's time consuming, but so worth it! And it's all by hand - it will never touch a bread machine! Also, my mom's pumpkin bread.

Butter Cream Frosting I
THE BEST!!! I have been testing several butter cream frosting over the past several days, was reluctant to try this because of the raw eggs, but caved out of desperation. So glad I did!! The taste and texture is amazing!!! I made another batch for a detailed character drawing in which I added almond extract and much more milk - again, wonderful. You will NOT be disappointed with this frosting - I promise!

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
If you want a good "OLD FASHIONED" recipe as the title states, then do not change a thing! The recipe is perfect as is - they taste just like the pancakes my grandmother made when I was growing up. If you want to tweak the recipe, fine, but you know longer have the "old fashioned"recipe that is the purpose of this particular recipe page. Having said that, these pancakes are moist and beautiful. I love them! Thanks, Dakota Kelly!

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies III
I followed the directions exactly and these cookies really are delicious. I made these on a whim for a friend's birthday and I was pleased at how fast and easy they were to make. I know this is common sense for most people, but really keep an eye on your first batch because they will go from done to burnt very quickly. That being said, I did have to alter the time in the oven to only 8 minutes as opposed to the 10-12 minute time mentioned in the recipe. I will be making these again at Christmas time and trying some variations... rum, mint chocolate chips, white chocolate chips, and butterscotch. Can't wait!
