About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to make sugar syrup for flan, I let it cook for too long. When I lifted the wooden spoon from the mixture, I was surprised to see I had spun sugar. It took hours for the clean-up.

Gourmet Sweet Potato Classic
Made this for Thanksgiving. It's very tasty, and was not too sweet although I was worried about all that sugar.

Banana Oatmeal Crumb Cake
I followed other people's suggestions about incorporating some of the topping into the dough on the surface. Otherwise there would've been too much loose crumb topping. Good flavor combination - I loved using oatmeal with the banana.
