About this Cook
Baking is one of my hobbies. I don't like to cook that much, so I look for dinner recipes here on AllRecipes.
My favorite things to cook
My specialty is cheesecake. I do make a very good lasagne too.

Haitian French Toast
This came out very good - hubby loved it. I had to alter it based on what I had. Plus I ALWAYS add vanilla to french toast recipes. Here is what I did differently:-------------- -5 pcs. Texas Toast bread (from Smart & Final) -used 1/2 C. 1/2 & 1/2 instead of heavy cream -some juice from fresh squeezed oranges about 1/4 c. (maybe less) - a bit more cinnamon & nutmeg (be careful with the nutmeg, of course) -2 tsp. vanilla ------------------------------------ With whisk, beat all ingredients in bowl(except butter & powdered sugar). Then place in 9 x 13 inch pan. Add the bread - turn it over - make sure evenly soaked - all liquid will soak up. and NOT be too soggy. Everything else was the same as original recipe. I look forward to trying it as it is supposed to be because it got such great reviews but seriously, I am very happy with the version I ended up with as well! Yumyum!

Baked French Toast
This was very good. After reading the reviews, I did modify it some in ways that made sense to me. Now that I have made it, what I will do differently next time is make it less sweet by using less of the butter, brown sugar & corn syrup topping. I love sweet, but this is really, really sweet!

Best Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies II
I made this recipe as close as I could to the instructions. Since it does not say "unsalted" butter, I assume salted is supposed to be used (I usually bake with unsalted & add salt when needed). Also, the recipe does not call for any salt... In this case I used 1/2 unsalted & 1/2 salted butter (needed to add a little more salt once I tasted the dough). I didn't sift the flour (& that turned out to be correct). I am usually a flour sifter :) The flavor was OK. I did add vanilla - I can't imagine baking lots of things without it & chocolate chip cookie recipes are one. I still like my chocolate chip cookies better, but in all fairness, I should make these again using all salted butter and perhaps deleting the vanilla to see if I would love these as much as everyone else does.
