Making Bread
About this Cook
I want to travel the earth and taste new things.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite thing to cook is soup. There is so much you can do with soup! I also enjoy baking, but it can't take me all day.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I also cooked with my Mom and Grandmas growing up. I remember every Christmas my Grandma got all her grandchildren together and would make Christmas cookies together. I want to pass that on.
My cooking triumphs
I learned how to make bread. Grandma would wake up every couple of mornings and make bread and it took me moving to Bosnia to finally figure it out. For whatever the reason my bread just never turned out even when Grandma and I would make it side by side.
My cooking tragedies
Oh-there are so many. The best one was the year I was making a chocolate bowl to put chocolate covered strawberries in for Christmas. I had a rather large bowl of chocolate sitting on the table while waiting for the first layer of chocolate bowl to harden (Thankfully we live in WI and it was about 20 below outside so my wait was short!). Anyway, I had my bottom done and suddenly my bowl of the melted chocolate hit the floor. This happened two years ago and I am still finding chocolate around the kitchen. Needless to say I was late for Christmas that year while trying to clean up.

Egg Noodles
This is my go to recipe for noodles!!! I should have rated it awhile ago. I love them and how thick and hearty they are. Sometimes if I'm lazy I just pinch the dough off in 1/2 inch sizes pieces and toss them in soups and stews. My kids love to help me and it's just plain fun.

Pumpkin Pancakes
This recipe is only half way good if you do tweak so many things which doesn't make a 5 star recipe in my book. We made this recipe as is and nobody at them and nobody liked the weird spongy texture. The flavor was bland and off. I cook homemade pancakes every Saturday morning and we tried this one twice and we are done with it.

No Bake Cookies III
These tasted okay (far too sweet), but mine were crumbles after cooling. Maybe it's because I used real peanut butter or I didn't stir enough, but I couldn't let the kids eat them because they would turn into a pile of crumbs when we picked them up. They were not flat, cute, little, glossy cookies that were discussed or shown in pictures. And I know how to cook and make yummy hard candy so these should have been easy peasy.
