About this Cook
I'm a biotechnology student at James Madison University, and I enjoy cooking in my spare time (there isn't a lot of it). I'm a swimmer (I've worked as both a lifeguard and swim instructor), a geek, and I'm little bit crazy. My family is from Southwest VA, so I've got the Appalachian twang goin' on too. A crazy liberal southern scientist? Sure. I guess that's me. My philosophy on life? Work hard, play harder.
My favorite things to cook
Dessert- everyone loves sweets, right?
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hrm... making messes? We seem to be good at that.
My cooking triumphs
I tend to have the day-to-day victories like coming up with random combinations that can work as dinner. It's the little things that count right? I seem to do really well when I improvise and do things my way. Although I make mistakes, I usually end up pulling everything together.
My cooking tragedies
There was an incident with a batch of cookies... and I blew a fuse in a mixer. And that time I caught garlic bread on fire under the broiler... I'm kind of like a mad scientist but transplanted into a kitchen. Most of my kitchen "tragedies" are caused by my short attention span, misreading of directions, or tendency to juggle too many tasks.

Peanut Butter Drops
My family calls these "preacher cookies". Thanks for the great recipe! I added 1 tablespoon of vanilla and they came out great!
