Wedding Day
About this Cook
I grew up in a three generation household. I was third in line to use the kitchen. My grandmother had first dibs on cooking, then came my mother. Needless to say, I didn't get to cook often. Now that I'm married and have my own kitchen, I enjoy trying new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. I also like to find new ways to cook boring foods - like chicken.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking Thanksgiving dinner together.
My cooking triumphs
There are three! The first is having my husband's coworkers offer to PAY me to cook dinner for them. The second is when my sister-in-law told me that she was impressed with what a good cook I've become. The third was having my Apple Blackberry Bread win he May 2006 Kaiser Bakeware recipe contest.
My cooking tragedies
Leaving the bag with the "yucky" stuff in the turkey the first time I cooked one. Ewwww...

All-Day Apple Butter
Tasty but way too much sugar. I will try again with more apples and less sugar.

Banana Bread IV
Absolutely delicious. I sprinkled some vanilla sugar on the top and it added a nice little vanilla-y crunch.

Blonde Brownies V
I followed this recipe step by step and, even after 30 minutes in a preheated 350 degree oven still had hot mush. A waste of my time and baking ingredients.
