About this Cook
I currently live in Austin Texas. I moved here in August of 2005 from my home town of Modesto California. My cooking style was influenced mostly by my grandmother. I was always amazed at the fact that she could cook chicken a million and two ways! her knack for not measuring and getting everything perfect all the time still amazes me to this day.
My favorite things to cook
BBQ and Fondue - but my main passion when it comes to food is definitely baking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My grandmother's mashed potato recipe (her secret was mayonase).
My cooking triumphs
Taking over the Holiday meals after my grandmother passed away and everyone loving them! Grandma is quite a lot to measure up to.
My cooking tragedies
Cheesecake. :(

Brown Sugar Cream Cheese Frosting
No so good. The taste was just a little off and almost sour. I ended up discarding it and making a traditional cream cheese frosting.

The Whole Jar of Peanut Butter Cookies
Yum! These were my first attempt at ever making peanut butter cookies and they turned out amazing! They have a "mall store" peanut butter cookie flavor. Loved them!

Sugar Coated Pecans
WOW - These were a HUGE hit! My guests were asking for take home containers. They taste even better after they sit for a day. I will definitely be making these again soon!
