About this Cook
I'm a self-taught baker since I was 12. I learned over my summer vacation to occupy myself while my brother was out with his buddies, and my ma was at work. I love the theraputic affect of baking, and the way a simple dessert can be turned into a work of art.
My favorite things to cook
pastries, muffins, and bread
My cooking triumphs

Didnt have rice vinegar, so used cidar vinegar, extra peanut butter, and also su stituted hot sauce for the red pepper flakes, and powdered ginger for fresh ginger. And still came out INCREDIBLE!!! THANKS FOR THE GREAT RECIPE!

Melt In Your Mouth Toffee
according to one reveiwer, I added 3 TBS each water and corn syrup to the HALVED RECIPE-mind you that his calculations for 1 1/4c brown sugar were spot on- adding them along with the rest of the ingredients, made for an addictive recipe! THANK YOU FOR SHARING!!!! Everyone is mad at me for making them fat, but I never thought I'd be good at making candy so I keep making it!!!
