About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
Made a Chocolate Rum Cake when I was about 15 that called for 1 cup strong coffee. When my brother took a bite of the finished product, he discovered I had put in 1 cup of coffee . . . ground. In my defence, the recipe did NOT call for me to brew the coffee first!

Scandinavian Almond Bars
I got A LOT of compliments on these cookies and they were super easy to make and smelled and looked yummy! (Personally, I'm not sure on taste since I'm dieting and didn't sample). I'm only giving them a 4 however. The glaze was extremely watery. I had to add much more sugar than the recipe called for to thicken it to get it to a better consistency to work with. As a result, also had to add more almond extract (that's okay though, we LOVE almond flavor). I think in the future, I'll need to start with 1 Tb milk and keep adding until desired consistency is reached. Also, the bars should be refrigerated to help set the glaze and keep them tasting fresher longer so they don't taste stale. Aside from that, I think I found my Christmas Cookie Exchange Recipe for this year!

Cranberry Sauce Extraordinaire
I have been making recipes from this website for years, but have never rated or reviewed anything. I had to rate this. This recipe is AMAZING!!!! I decided that I wanted homemade cranberry sauce this year. I had never tried to make it before. We are a family that likes our can shaped sauce full of ridges (plus it's just one less item to have to prepare). For my dried mixed fruit, I used a combination of blueberries, cherries and apricots. I did not use an orange, but substitued a small can of drained mandarin oranges that I smashed up. I followed the rest of the recipe exactly. It was very easy to make. My 3 year old loved it too! It was her favorite part of dinner!!!! Will definitely be making this again in the future (and probably extra to have on hand for baked chicken dishes through the winter).
