About this Cook
I recently got married and I love trying out new recipes on my husband:) I love love love to bake!
My favorite things to cook
Well obviously-cookies, cakes, pies, and specialty desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and usually my sister come over a couple of weeks before Christmas and we bake all day. When we are done we have buckeyes, christmas cut-out cookies, some kind of fudge, truffles, divinity-if we have the time, and pecan snowballs.
My cooking triumphs
My toffee crunch tiramisu. My husbands melts at the sight! The flavor combo of coffee and chocolate is irresistable! Ive loved this recipe since the first time I made it and I used to hate coffee.
My cooking tragedies
I was preparing a romantic dinner for my husband and it was the first time I had tried to fix cornish hens. They werent completely dethawed and so they didnt really cook too well...everything else turned out so we just picked what we could off of them. Oh well.

Red Skinned Potato Salad
Made as is, this is a very good recipe! I've also changed it a bit to make it even better! I sometimes use Yukon Golds instead of reds and I peel half of them to make it easier for my toddler to eat. If Im pressed for time I use ready cooked bacon and just cut it into bite size pieces. I use green onion (better flavor and adds color). Not a fan of celery in potato salad so we leave that out and I sometimes use half sour cream and half mayo. I also sprinkle in a little paprika and celery salt! Delicious!

PHILADELPHIA Vanilla Mousse Cheesecake
Very good! This was my first time making an actual cheesecake. I used Keebler Vanilla Wafers since they were on sale, 1/3 less fat Philly, a little more vanilla than it calls for, and only 2 eggs because I accidentally looked at the other recipe I was mixing at the same time! I actually LOVED the consistency that it gave it though so I may just stick to doing that from now on! The only thing I wasnt crazy about was the second layer on top. There was just too much! I think if you halved that amount it would be soo much better. Overall though it was a hit with our friends! *Making this tomorrow (minus the top layer all together since I just realized I forgot Cool Whip!) and putting out a DIY topping bar. Crumbled Oreos/hot fudge and apple pie filling/caramel...Cant wait!*

Brown Sugar Smokies
This is one of the best party recipes ever! I've never baked them though-just toothpick them and toss them in the crock pot for around 3 hours. The bacon comes out nice and chewy and they are drenched in the sugar glaze. I have brought them to many parties but never brought any back home!
