About this Cook
I recently married a chef! He is in the kitchen everyday!Sometimes I like to cook and bake for him. It's hard to find recipes that he doesn't want to change. I look forward to what I'll learn from
My favorite things to cook
I am best known for my baking. Although I do enjoy cooking. There's just something about baking. Things are so pretty and such a sense of comfort.
My cooking triumphs
My chocolate cake is my biggest triumph! I have had restaurants ask me if they could put it on their menu.

Easy OREO Truffles
Very easy to make. I didn't need to put the cookie and cream cheese mix in the fridge. I just mixed very well and made 1 inch balls. I then melted my chocolate. I used chocolate chips in a "double boiler" (a normal sized pot with boiling water with a smaller pot in the large pot). I slowly melted the chocolate. While it was melting I added some butter to thin out the chocolate to make it easy to dip and it gives the chocolate a nice shine when hard. To dip the balls without having them fall apart I used 2 forks on either side of the ball and then dipped away. With using the forks the extra chocolate drains off the ball.

Marble Cake I
I followed the recipe to a T and it turned out perfectly! I used a toothpick to make small marble design then I used a knife to make a bolder marble design. I finished it with chocolate icing. It's an easy tasty dessert.

Cheddar Cheese Straws
I just finished making these tasty little snacks. I was reading all the other reviews and adjusted the recipe to suit my family best. I added oregano, paprika, onion salt and garlic salt. I also used 1/2 cup of butter and only 1/4 cup of water. I rolled out the dough and then cut them with a pizza cutter. Then I lightly roll each stick in my hand then placed them on the parchment paper. Once placed on the parchment paper I grated parmesan cheese and sprinkled coarse sea salt. I baked them at 375 for about 12mins. I served them with ranch dip. I also think they would be good served with chipotle mayo.
