About this Cook
I enjoy cooking and especially baking. I see so many similarities between my work as a biologist and cooking; I think that's why I enjoy it so much.
My favorite things to cook
I think I do Americana really well.
My cooking triumphs
German Chocalate cake for my mother-in-law's birthday, she now wants it every year.
My cooking tragedies
Burn, burn, burn that ring of fire.....

Pumpkin Cake III
Spectacular! This is a holiday hit with my family. Even those who dislike pumpkin pie devour this cake. I add 1/2 tsp of nutmeg and 1/4 tsp of clove and use the Cream Cheese II frosting recipe.

Chili I
I have made this recipe twice for parties, once in Chicago and once in Texas. Chicagoans and Texans are both discerning chili eaters. Both groups loved this chili! It's a unique recipie without being too "unique" tasting.

Apple Cranberry Crisp
I have been making this for the Thanksgiving for the past 5 years. It gets countless raves! I think this has to be the best holiday side dish ever!
