About this Cook
i am a journey person cook, who happens to back for a living right now...have worked as a cold kitchen cook, line cook, banquet cook, and even as a breakfast cook...but i do think my ideal would be a job where all i do all day is make soups and bake bread!
My favorite things to cook
i love making foods that make people feel good. prefer whole food cooking to cooking out of boxes or packages.
My cooking triumphs
learning how to work around a newly developed dairy allergy...making puddings and such from alternative products...
My cooking tragedies
i think the WORST cooking mistake i made was when i first moved out of my parents home...i had not cooked often as a child/teen. wanting to make something special for my boyfriend i called up a friend and asked how to make seafood fettuccine...he talked me through the whole thing from sauteing the garlic to using whipping cream (insisting i use the SAME KIND OF CREAM my mom would use) so is did cool whip... *gag*

Vegan Chocolate Cake
I adore this recipe!!! I have made it scads of time as is in cup cake or layer cake formats. with raspberry vinegar in place of white...and recently started playing with it by removing the cocoa and adding more flour for a vanilla cake (which worked) so will try a spice cake, or maybe even a carrot cake next... but this December I tried two different uses for the chocolate cake, i made a yule log by making a very thin cake in a sheet pan lined with parchment (worked well) AND I made RUM BALLS!!!!!!!!! worked better than i expected...mashed up a baked cake in my mixer added just enough rum to form into balls and rolled in sugar crystals...so folks if you love run balls but have dietary restrictions, this works!
