About this Cook
I have two food businesses: DessertDepot.com and CuisineCouture.com, both delivery services in the Austin area.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking any kind of dessert and trying new recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Holidays I always have a HUGE spread ~ lots of different desserts, sides and of course the traditional ham & turkey.
My cooking triumphs
Homemade Mille Fueille - my friend from Quebec said it was as good, if not better, than the pastry shops he frequented!
My cooking tragedies
My first attempt at homemade chili - I didn't know I was supposed to soak and cook the kidney beans so they were hard as rocks! Also my first turkey I forgot to remove the bag of "extras" inside the bird ~

Old Fashioned Pineapple Upside-Down Cake
Bland. I even added 1/4 c pineapple juice. The cake texture is more like angel food which is ok except that's not how I like my pineapple upside down cake. I did cook it in my cast iron skillet so the listed baking time was correct, I just wasn't crazy about how dry and bland it was. Sorry!

Fast and Easy Low-Guilt Cake
I modified this a bit ~ used the white cake mix, 1/2 c of applesauce, 1 c of water, the extracts listed and added 1 tsp of lemon extract and used 1/2 c egg whites instead of egg substitute. I baked for 35 minutes then poked with a fork and glazed with a mixture of 1/4 c sugar and 1/3 c lemon juice simmered until sugar was dissolved (poured over while cake was still warm). Good base recipe for something low-fat, thanks for sharing!
