About this Cook
We have a large household and so I cook regularly for 8 people. I'm used to scaling recipes and also making substitutions to make them healthier for myself and my family both by cutting fat and calories without sacrificing flavor.
My favorite things to cook
Crock pot meals, homemade pizza, roasted Brussels sprouts and other roasted veggies
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving and Yule are really the only two times of year we pull out the traditions. They include my great-grandmother's potato filling. Summertime BBQs also include her baked beans.

Extreme Chocolate Cake
I made only the cake since my son wanted a chocolate cake with vanilla buttercream. I followed the directions exactly as written except I used cake flour instead of AP. I put the batter in buttered/floured 9" Wilton round pans. I baked for 35 minutes and let cool entirely in the pans. They didn't stick or break up when I took them out but were very, very moist. The cake itself held up well, split beautifully for 4 layers, and tasted absolutely delicious. This will probably be my go-to homemade chocolate cake recipe now.

Bailey's Irish Cream Brownies
Delicious! I made this in an 8 x 8 pan and halved the recipe. For the frosting I creamed together equal parts butter, cream cheese, and butter-flavored Crisco, 2 T Bailey's, and then just added powdered sugar until it reached the consistency I wanted. I had quite a bit of frosting leftover, too, which I put on PB cookies. ;)

Healthy Coconut Oatmeal
This would probably also be excellent with some banana and/or pineapple. I couldn't taste the maple syrup (used 1 tsp for a single serving of oats) so I'd probably just skip it entirely next time. The fruits lend plenty of flavor anyway. A nice variation for morning oatmeal!
