About this Cook
Since September 2011, I've cooked more times at my in-law's than I've ever done when it was just me or just me + husband. Pretty amazing if you ask me :).
My favorite things to cook
I'm a better baker than cooker I believe. My husband and in-laws think my cooking is great and that I'm too hard on myself. Maybe they're right!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I miss rice and peas! (Other people call it rice and beans, but it's rice and peas. Not budging on that technicality. :P)
My cooking triumphs
Trying out a new recipe with success! (Success=no one ends up sick, does the "we gotta eat it cause she made it even though it's not that great" face,and/or seem to genuinely like the dish!)
My cooking tragedies
Forgetting a key ingredient to a recipe and realizing it when it's already in the oven and there's no turning back... I really get hard on myself when I do that.

Gramma's Apple Bread Pudding
It was tasty! I didn't make the sauce because I didn't feel like making it at the time but I don't see why I'd bother making it in the future seeing as how good it tastes without it. Will go back to this recipe in the future!

Carrot Cake III
I made this for my mother-in-law's birthday yesterday. It turned out pretty good! I made the cake the day before and then put the icing on yesterday. Depending on your oven you may want to leave it in longer. I first took it out after 45 minutes and the middle was jello! Another 10+ minutes did the trick though. I didn`t read the recipe and because I didn`t have enough walnuts, I threw in some chopped almonds. For the icing, you can get away with just one cup of icing sugar, maybe 1 and a bit. 4 cups seems like an excessive amount! And if you find it too stiff, you can dash in some milk until you get the consistency you desire. Other than that, this was a good cake! Was liked by everyone who had a piece. :)

Pull-Apart Hot Cross Buns
Very good! The icing ended up too liquid for me but the little I did put on them before my mom-in-law accidentally threw the rest out was very good. Definitely helps to have a bread machine to do all the mixing.
