About this Cook
I love to bake! Cookies, cakes, pies...anything! I do enjoy cooking and experimenting with different spices but baking is a challenge, one wrong move can ruin the dish.
My favorite things to cook
My famous fudge! I only make it on birthdays though, because it has started fist fights and has broken up friendships. Its powerful fudge!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is catholic so on christmas eve, we don't eat meat...only seafood and vegetarian dishes. Because I can cook very well, I am always elected to cook the dinner! the main dish always changes every year and No one is ever disappointed!
My cooking triumphs
Brownies! It took 4 years of trial and error, but I finally found and made the PERFECT brownie recipe!
My cooking tragedies
Pastry for pie crust. For the life of me I cannot make pastry for pie crusts...Thank god the ready made pie shells aren't expensive!

Mall Pretzels
OMG wow! These are phenomenal! I made them a lil smaller (16 pretzels), cooked time at 5 minutes and left them in the warm oven for 30sec-1min after I turned the oven off. Also let the yeast proof for 10 minutes before adding the flour. ALSO, I made the 3 flavours! I added Parmesan cheese to the garlic salt ones and the cinnamon/sugar ones didn't last long at all!!! Definitely a keeper!

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies
Wow, I was really surprised about these cookies. I followed everything to a tee and they didn't turn out. They burnt on the bottom (used parchment paper and they still burnt...I don't get it) and the taste was too bitter. There was too much baking soda. Next time, use less baking soda.

Chocolate-Chocolate Chip Bacon Cookies
A very very very good cookie! I couldnt really taste the bacon on mine, though I mght add more pieces of bacon because the saltiness of the bacon and the sweetness of the cookie is incredible! Havent you ever dipped your bacon in maple syrup run off from your pancakes?! Its amazing! these cookies are fantastic!
