About this Cook
I started experimenting before I moved away from the folks because I thought I wanted to eat good from the start. I've always experimented, learning to cook by trail and error and not so much from cookbooks. I eat a big salad for breakfast and people think I'm nuts. When I'm not cooking, I am usually writing poetry everyday. In fact, I published a Kindle anthology entitled Envious of the Clouds in Nov. 2011. At work, I'm a printworker.

Classic Peanut Butter Cookies
I will call my own version Three Nut Cookies. I put in one egg to toughen it, after seeing that some people had problems with the dough. I added a TB of liquid hazelnut creamer and topped each cookie with chopped walnuts. Very good and the cookies are soft but don't break apart in your hand.

Peanut Butter Brownies I
This sounded yummy, but I made adjustments. I replaced vanilla extract with liquid hazelnut creamer and put in a cup of chocolate chips and a cup of marshmallows. It only cooked for 15 min. before the marshmallows looked like they were going to burn. Not a problem. Still firm and chewy. I added a melted chocolate chip layer to smooth out the lumpy surface.
