About this Cook
I've been cooking since I can remember. As the oldest of five a large majority of what I was cooking was very large scale and so when I moved out and started cooking on my own I had a hard time adjusting. I now have it down and love to cook for my boyfriend and myself. I try to freeze stuff so that it is easier to eat well and economically throughout the week. I also pack my work lunches and so make shopping lists based on menu plans for the week. Was difficult at first but really like it now because it is fun and nice to know I am saving money!
My favorite things to cook
I love PASTA!! I also have to admit that my Fudge Truffle Cheesecake is great to make because everyone loves it and is so easy to work up.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family always makes Popcorn cake for Birthdays. Think Rice Crispy Treats with Popcorn instead and then add m&m's and nuts. SO GOOD!
My cooking triumphs
Cheesecake was a huge triumph but I'm going to say that my mango salsa over stuffed chicken breasts is a triumph because it is so popular!
My cooking tragedies
I don't really have any major trajedies. If I try a new recipe I usually give it a couple shots and if I don't like it I don't use it again.

Peanut Butter and Jelly Cheesecake
didn't use the jelly but the peanut butter cheesecake was amazing. Made a second batch of a fudge truffle cheesecake recipe and swirled the two together. YUM!

Queensland Pumpkin Scones
not a bad recipe. Definitely needed some spicing up. Added 3 tsp pumpkin spice and 1 tsp ginger. Next time I'll also do a lemon ginger glaze on top.

Wisconsin Five-Cheese Bake
this was a great recipe and I love how it turned out!! I used parmesan, sharp cheddar and some provolone cheese and it was fabulous. Just the recipe I was looking for!
