About this Cook
I am a passionate baker and trying to be a better cook!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook baked mac 'n' cheese, anything with a slow cooker, chicken on the indoor grill, and BBQ meatballs. But really, I'd rather be baking :) Scones are my favorite.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Anything that involves baked breakfast items, like Christmas morning cinnamon rolls.
My cooking triumphs
Tortilla soup that won over my (now) husband! Triple layer coconut cake with boiled icing, Malaysian chicken pizza, and BBQ meatballs--a staple in our house.
My cooking tragedies
Pancake-like chocolate chip cookies: First time using our new oven. Definite tragedy.

Pudding Shots
A huge hit at our office Christmas party!! I tripled the recipe. With about 35 people at the party, not a single pudding shot remained. I recommend topping them with a dollop of whipped cream just before serving.
