About this Cook
My husband and I just had our first anniversary, and throughout the year I've been learning how to cook for both of us and not just myself. I'm expanding my recipe box to include his favorites, and I'm converting him to some of my favorites too.
My favorite things to cook
I simply adore baking. If I'm stressed, lonely, upset, or dealing with any other negative feeling, baking helps. This, unfortunatly, has had an adverse effect on my husband's wasitline.
My cooking triumphs
We are members of our local volunteer fire company--he's a firefighter and I work on the administrative side. This past year I put together cookie variety bags for 30+ people at Christmas time, plus some baked goodie bags for my girlfriends from college.
My cooking tragedies
There is one recipe for brown sugar cookies in a book from my aunt that I simply cannot get to turn out right. The dough is runny and the cookies never cook evenly. I bake on stone, and regardless of preheating, I simply find it impossible to make these cookies.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
Wonderful! I'm pregnant, and my big craving lately has been peanut butter. I'm getting a bit tired of eating it straight from the jar, so I hopped on AR to look for a new cookie recipe to try out. I've never done flourless before, but I'm amenable to experimental cookies. These did not disappoint. There's not too much to distract from the PB flavor, which is great. I added a splash of vanilla and made them bite sized, as recommended by other reviewers. I scraped a few off the sheet too early and ruined their structural integrity, so I tossed them in a bowl and plopped some ice cream on top! This will be my standard response to mushed cookies in the future!

No Bake Cookies III
Just the choc/pb fix I've been craving! I encountered one issue that turned out to be a wash. I made these on a very humid day, so they didn't set very well. All I did was pop them in the fridge and keep them there. Given how hot it's been, cold cookies are better than room temperature! So the minus was that they didn't set, but the plus was that my solution was also a good way to beat the heat. So overall it's a wash and I still love these cookies!
