About this Cook
I've always had a love for baking. I think I got into it from my mother who was very good at baking and at one point had her own cake business. It wasn't until I got married (06/04) that I really started to get into cooking and becoming fascinated with the wonderful world of food preparation
My favorite things to cook
I love chicken. Chicken, chicken, chicken. And appetizers. And trying new recipes.
My cooking triumphs
This past Thanksgiving when I brought a potato dish and a pear torte to my mother's house. They were both a hit and everyone couldn't stop raving about them!
My cooking tragedies
Sometimes I forget to take out the last tray of cookies. I've also burned a slow cooker recipe once or twice. Oh and when I couldn't figure out how to make brown rice in my rice cooker. How embarrassing!

Creamy Banana Bread
What a great recipe! I served this to a bunch of my girlfriends and they went wild! It's also really easy to heat up and tastes just as delicious! I always brush on a bit of lemon juice on the top just as it comes out of the oven. I will definitely make this one again!

Sour Cream Coffee Cake I
This was a good coffee cake. I would make it again. I may try and adding different ingredients to the middle layer to shake things up a bit.

Caramel Apple Cake
This recipe was quite tasty though I did have to cook it for a bit longer as the middle was mushy after the called for time. I liked it and everyone else I served it to seemed to like it as well.
