About this Cook
I love to cook and bake and learn new cooking techniques. Check out my recipe blog at and my facebook page:
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy using fresh and flavorful ingredients to prepare meals for and with my family. Many times I will tweak a recipe to our liking, but I have just recently started experimenting with flavors to make signature recipes, however this is something very new to me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My daughter loves to bake and we enjoy creating new things together in the kitchen.
My cooking tragedies
It is a running joke in my household to expect burned rolls on a holiday haha

Spicy Chinese Barbeque Riblets
This was okay as written, but the sauce was missing something for us. I added cilantro and that helped a great deal and then grated some fresh ginger into the sauce and that gave it the depth I craved! Great base sauce. I love how thick and sticky it is!

Apple Chips
Delicious! I served with a homemade salted caramel dip. I gave this 4 stars because I had to bake longer than stated. I baked at 225 for about 2 hours total and they came out nice and firm. I flipped them over halfway through. I used parchment paper so there wasn't any issues with sticking. I used the mandolin to slice them and left the core to keep the pretty star shape in the center.

Megan's Granola
Delicious! I didn't have walnuts, so I used pistachios I had on hand. I left out the raisins/cranberries (personal preference). I also reduced the recipe by 1/2, but this is so good I would be inclined to make the whole thing and jar it up for gifts. Thanks for a great recipe!
