About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Cakes, cookies, dessert bars, fruity breads, lettuce salads, pasta salads, potato dishes, meat marinades and more.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom's the expert bread maker, I'm talking desserty/breakfasty sweet breads, she makes lasagna without following anything but her mind and it always turns out fabulous. My grandma, who was Finnish, had a Swedish meatball-type of recipe in a Finnish fashion, that I loved.
My cooking triumphs
I've developed good cookie making skills over time by sheer trial and error, am getting close to the same with cakes and breads, and hope to become good at pies next.
My cooking tragedies
Once I was making a treat that was a Heath Bar knock-off, I goofed and thought I'd line the pan with foil to make it easier to get out once it was baked. OOPS, the foil soaked into the liquid-y bottom layer and baked itself inside of the dessert which became hardened. Duh. It was the only thing I've ever had to throw entirely away, it was in no way salvagable.

Rave Reviews Coconut Cake
LOVE IT! Super easy, since you start it with the yellow cake mix and vanilla pudding. I used a different cream cheese/vanilla frosting of my own. I also did not make three layers. I used a 3-inch high round cake pan. I thought it would be too much frosting with so many layers. The cake itself is rich enough and filled with coconut and walnuts that it didn't need tons of frosting throughout it. Everyone who's had a bite of this cake so far loves it and wants a copy of the recipe!

Ham and Cheese Quiche
Super easy and delish! This recipe can serve as a good base recipe for any kind of quiche by adding whatever comes to your imagination! The only thing I changed about this was I used shredded Jack cheese instead of slices of Swiss and used frozen Spinach instead of fresh. Make sure to drain the Spinach very well if you use frozen!
