This is my first official post to my blog! I've never really been that interested in blogging about my cooking experiences, but I think now is about the time when I should start broadening my horizons a little more! I made this amazing Baked Squash Pasta last night that I'm going MORE

About this Cook
I am a recent college grad and I am also trying to plan my May 2012 wedding! I love cooking, baking, quilting, and all things crafty! I also enjoy spending time with my friends, family, and pets.
My favorite things to cook
Since I'm planning my wedding, I'm also trying to get healthier. I am always looking for an easy way to incorporate sinful ingredients into a yummy recipe, but still keeping the calories down. Besides that, I love Italian food and Mexican food, and I just love all different kinds of things! Perhaps most of all though, I love to bake cupcakes, cakes, muffins, and brownies. I wish I would wake up earlier in the day because breakfast has so many possiblities to start the day off amazingly!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year my mom and I pick our own apples and them take them home and make apple sauce. And at Christmas-time we bake tons of cookies. Holidays have always been a special time around our household.
My cooking triumphs
I have made and adapted many recipes to fit my personal tastes and most have turned out well. I cook dinner daily for my family as I still live at home with my parents, and I'm trying to broaden my horizons when it comes to trying new foods.
My cooking tragedies
I tried a recipe for garlic mashed potatoes and somehow they turned into a grainy mess when I added the parmesan cheese in. They were a disaster! I also tried making pancakes right after I moved into our apartment, but I had no spatula! I tried to flip them with tongs that I had but I just ended up throwing everything away and having cold cereal!

Red Velvet Cupcakes
I made this recipes exactly as stated and the cupcakes came out dry. They still have a nice flavor, but I was bummed that they weren't as moist as I'm used to in a cupcake. I will possibly modify the recipe by using less flour and/or using buttermilk in place of some of the sour cream and milk, but I think there are better recipes out there that don't require a whole bottle of red food dye.

By far one of the best fudge recipes that I have tried! I didn't use the walnuts, and doubled the recipe and put into a 13x9 dish, then I pressed mini marshmallows into half of the pan. So yummy! I would suggest that if you use mini marshmallows like I did to mix them into the fudge before pressing into the pan. Some of them were just falling off, but the ones that I really smushed in were absolutely lovely! Thanks for a great recipe!

Easiest Peanut Butter Fudge
I made this for Christmas and forgot to review it until now. The taste was very yummy, however the texture was crumbly. I let it set in the fridge and then tried cutting it, but it was crumbling rather than cutting. So I then let it sit out for a few minutes and tried cutting again. Much better! If you store this in the fridge, it will be crumbly if eaten right away. I suggest taking it out of the fridge for a few minutes before serving. It makes it 100x better! Thanks for the great recipe!
