About this Cook
I'm a 24 year old newly wed whose pickiness in foods greatly challenges my goals of being a great cook. Just to get it out up front... I do not eat veggies. Corn and potatoes are the extent of the veggies I eat. I think I despise onions the most of all. With that said... I do like to cook and love finding new recipes that are delicious and easy to make. Oh yes, and if you are wondering... I do often try a veggie here and there hoping that suddenly my taste buds have changed.. unfortunately they have yet to do so. And so far I haven't died from the lack of veggies, I would be a great science experiment for someone studing the effects of food.
My favorite things to cook
Any kind of sweets... I love to Bake (especially since it never involves veggies). At least once a week I bake something. Its my way of relaxing
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love making sugar cookies at Christmas. Who doesn't?
My cooking triumphs
I actually have a signature dish at Thanksgiving. Its a sweet potato soufle that is easy and delicious. Every year its requested and I always bring it. When your husband's grandmother tells you its delicious.. you know it must be.
My cooking tragedies
Ha! Once I screwed up hamburger helper beef noodle. This was right after I started college. I must have over looked the directions on the box a failed to add enough water or something. The dish turned out so strong and salty I've never had any desire to try and make it again (the right way!). blehk!

Five Flavor Pound Cake I
I love this recipe. It's been a classic in our family for years. I think it's even better the next day severed chilled. My husband loves to eat it for breakfast.

Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls
A pretty good, easy cinnamon roll. If I made them again I would skip putting a teaspoon of the cinnamon sugar mix in the bottom of each muffin cup. All of my cinnamon filling bubbled out and the dough just kinda floated in the middle. Less may be better : )

Baked Pineapple
Very good. I got a little ahead of myself in mixing the ingredients and mixed in the cinnamon with it all. I did use pineapple juice instead of water and sprinkle additional cinnamon on before it went in the oven. The next time I make it I'll beat the eggs before I mix them in. Perfect dish for a holiday meal!
