About Cookies, Et Cetera
Welcome to Cookies, Et Cetera! Cooking was a big part of my life growing up in small town Wisconsin. Sunday dinners at my grandparent's, I can still taste the fresh baked rolls and kuchen. Baking fruitcakes for my church men's club yearly fundraiser with my dad. My summer jobs were all cooking related. Early morning baker, short order cook, catering assistant, anything they let me do I tried. Ultimately I chose the very different and glamorous life of a computer programmer over that of a chef but the love of cooking and baking has never waned. Baking cookies, finding a new candy recipe, or writing about my latest kitchen escapades are some of the simplest pleasures in life to me. Cookies, Et Cetera combines my loves and drives me to try new things and perfect my skills. Here I will record my culinary successes, my baking failures, and my kitchen education.
