About this Cook
I am a twenty-something, curly-haired, Christian wife to a wonderful man, living in Michigan (as I have my whole life). I have recently developed quite a few food allergies, and so I do a lot more cooking from scratch than I used to, but the the things is... I LOVE IT! If only there weren't so many dirty dishes.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake. A lot. Muffins, quick breads, scones, biscuits, brownies, cookies, other desserts (especially fruity ones). I am currently learning how to make yeast breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is not very big on traditions, except for a few years when we had a quiet Thanksgiving dinner all by ourselves - mom and three daughters doing all the cooking together. No super-special family recipes, really. But I do have my mother to thank for letting me and a friend into the kitchen quite a few times as kids to bake cookies or whatever. That's probably where my love of baking comes from - those special memories.
My cooking triumphs
I can't think of any specific food situation that was a real triumph that I had to work for. I am just encouraged by the frequent compliments I get from my husband and others for the things I bake and cook for us.
My cooking tragedies
Back when my husband was my boyfriend of less than a year, we would often share dinner - taking turns cooking. One cold Winter day I had some extra free time and thought I'd cook up some sort of a hearty bean soup. I don't remember what sort of recipe I was working with, I just remember that about half way through cooking it (after even taking the extra time to soak the dried beans, etc), I tasted it, and it was awful. But he was going to be showing up soon! With no garbage disposal in the sink, how was I to hide the evidence of this failed pot of warm beany goo? Well, the apartment I lived in had an unfinished, unheated room that opened off of the kitchen, and since it was a cold day, I just grabbed the whole pot, set it in there, and closed the door. And didn't do anything else with it (frozen solid as it became) for a week or so. Yuck. I probably just whipped up some Hamburger Helper or something for us to eat that night. So much for impressing him with my cooking skills.

Light and Creamy Brown Sugar and Chocolate Frosting
Nevermind the cake, this is a wonderful quick treat eaten out of miniature dishes, like a dense mousse. I do increase the cocoa. And of course, tweak it a little to taste every time. But oh, such a simple, perfect start.

The cookies came out perfectly, and were enjoyed plain with lime curd.
