About this Cook
I have a sign in my kitchen that says: "If we are what we eat I'm either fast, cheap or easy." I would say I'm mostly cheap and easy ;)
My favorite things to cook
I love baking, especially cookies. It is fun to decorate them with different colored icing, sprinkles, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I used to love my mom's meatloaf and noodle casserole. I say "used to" because she is gone, and I've given up meat. It's been about five years now, and I recently went all the way and quit eating chicken and turkey.
My cooking triumphs
Whenever something turns out looking good!
My cooking tragedies
Anytime something that I am taking somewhere to share (usually to work), when it doesn't turn out right I am frustrated.

Bloody Broken Glass Cupcakes
Looks awesome! Will have to try this next year. I love the fake blood effect and the "glass" doesn't seem so hard to make.

Chocolaty Pecan Pie Bars
I made these, following the recipe with the exception of subbing walnuts that I had on hand for the pecans. The topping was fine, but the base, it just wasn't good. I was going to follow my gut and use a smaller pan and increase bake time. If I do make these again I will do that.

Lavender Cookies
I just made these. As one reviewer noted the dough is very floury and as a result comes out being dense. I treated the lavender buds I had like a dried herb; I used a half tablespoon. The lavender is a nice, soft touch, but I would have preferred a less dense dough. It was such a quick recipe perhaps I will try again and make some adjustments.
