About this Cook
I am a full time student at Salt Lake Community College. I enjoy increasing personal liberty, Red Sox Baseball, and sticking it to the man.
My favorite things to cook
I like to make fried chicken, baked beans, and baby food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I really like making baked beans in my awesome hull pottery bean pot. My mom used to make them occasionally when I was a kid.
My cooking triumphs
I made some wicked awesome Chicken Gumbo a few weeks ago. Also, I made some kick red beans and rice.
My cooking tragedies
I made some Angel Cookies. The recipe calls for butter, but I was making them for my sister in-law that has a milk allergy, but they didn't set up! They all ran together, and they were just awful.

Seven Minute Frosting II
With a yellow cake, the taste and texture are very nice. The icing has a mildly crispy meringue shell and adds moisture to the cake especially if kept unrefrigerated. The seven minutes the title purports is totally inaccurate. It took at LEAST 20 minutes with my hand mixer before the meringue got to the soft peak stage. As for the act of frosting, that can be a bit challenging. This icing is a bit thin for my liking. I ended up with icing all over my counter. This frosting is just not very effective for layered cakes, as it just oozes out from between the layers. This may have been avoided if allowed to completely dry before adding another layer. Try fresh berries instead. It takes quite a few (four or more) hours to completely set. I would have been building this cake for a few days had I gone by that method. The drying time (for lack of a better term) also prohibits stencils from being used effectively. To the credit of this icing, it DOES taste GREAT and contains much less fat and calories than a butter-cream type of frosting. Making this recipe is a challenging, but rewarding experience. Seven minute frosting complimented the yellow cake from King Arthur Four's Baker's Companion very nicely indeed.

Indian Lassi
This was fast, easy, and delicious. I put a banana in, as it would have spoiled within a day, and garnished with cinnamon.

Angel Cookies I
I made this and it was SooOOOooo good. My kids helped me roll the dough into balls, and in the sugar, and we had a great time. Also, these cookies keep very well in the freezer. If you are thinking about substituting margarine for the butter that is called for in this recipe, DON'T. I tried making these for my sister in-law that has a milk alergy, but the turned out terribly when margarine was used (twice).
