About this Cook
Wesleyan University CT class of '13; member of XC and T&F; Rarely have time to bake anymore and when I do I usually resort to mixes (The horror! The horror!). Some kids on the team have kitchens and the associated resources, so perhaps I'll take shameless advantage of that in the near future...
My favorite things to cook
cookies, cake, scones, muffins I've been on a huge oatmeal kick recently. Eating, not preparing.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Fried squirrels with melted cheese for Saturday breakfast.
My cooking tragedies
Accidentally shot an old guy in the face while hunting turkeys for Thanksgiving.

Coffeebar Chai
Yum! I thought it was a little sweet at first but it may have simply been the intense flavors.

Red Velvet Cake I
I thought it was a bit on the dry side. I used oil instead of shortening, 2 cups of sugar, no vinegar, and only 1 oz of red food coloring (and it was still very very red).

Special Buttercream Frosting
I'll definitely use this one again, and I'll likely give it 5 stars next time. The problem: the weather is too hot! I used all butter, and let it sit out to soften while I was at work. By the time I returned home, it was partially melted. I had to add extra sugar to get a decent consistency. I thought it was a tad on the sweet side but my siblings loved it (and considering it was a birthday cake for one of them, I think their opinion counts more anyway!).
