About this Cook
I have recently started working from home, and that gives me more time to experiment with new recipes. I love to try new things, and find I get bored making the same thing over and over again, even if people really like it. I like to give my husband a "new favorite" every once in a while.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. Anytime is a great time to bake, but it's fun in the summer when fresh fruit is abundant. I also really like to experiment with lemons or limes or anything citrus.
My cooking triumphs
Cherry Berries on a Cloud. It's a super easy dessert that takes a bit of time, but it never fails and everyone loves it.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make a peach kuchen from memory which was pretty much not edible. I've learned my lesson and most times I at least scan an actual recipe when in the kitchen now!

Cream Cheese Frosting I
This is very good and so easy! I used more cream cheese than called for so mine wasn't thin or runny at all. There was extra left over, so I have some on hand for my next carrot cake or cupcakes...thanks for a great recipe!

Quinoa Side Dish
Yummy! A very quick and easy alternative to rice. This would be great using any combination of herbs/spices. I'll definitely make this again.

Penne with Pancetta and Mushrooms
I used extra cream as another reviewer suggested. Also extra garlic was a must! This is a great base recipe and would be really nice with any combination of other vegetables added if you wanted. It was so quick and easy to make...I'll make this again. Thanks!
