About this Cook
I like a challenge. I like to try new things. Cooking offers both! Changing a recipe is the challenge, while I create something new.
My favorite things to cook
I love to make desserts. Mostly, I like to EAT desserts!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family has a mixed background. One grandmother liked to buy Sarah Lee frozen cakes, while the other always made homemade delights. The uniqueness, fresh taste, and pride of creation has been my inspiration.
My cooking triumphs
I love to make a good meal. Usually I like the challenge of opening the fridge at 5pm and putting together a unique tasting meal from what I find in there. Sometimes it's turning leftovers into a new thing. Other times, it's finding new combinations.
My cooking tragedies
Unfortunately, I try too many new recipes when company is coming. Then I have to admit publicly my defeat.

Fudge Puddles
Out of Sweetened Condensed Milk? You can substitute condensed milk that you have boiled with 1 1/2 cups of white sugar. Then let cool, and mix with the melted chocolate. Because this recipe has chocolate that hardens, its okay to substitute this runnier substitute.
