Michelle's Famous Washed Cranberry Sauce
About this Cook
I am a homemaker, a Christian, and I have been married to my hubby and best friend since 1999. We both love to cook new recipes. My mom trained me early to cook. She hates cooking and I became our household "chef." I loved it! She loves doing dishes and so we were a great team! I have always loved cooking. I have a "one new recipe a week" rule.
My favorite things to cook
Thanksgiving dinner, Recipes with lots of steps and ingredients, Cupcakes, Cakes, Desserts, Mexican Dishes, Thai Food, Anything!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Grandma owned and operated her own cake catering business for more than 40 years. I loved staying with her and being her little helper.
My cooking tragedies
Biscuits! My hubby was born in the South and his grandma made homemade biscuits every meal. My many attempts have turned out "hockey pucks!" :( I recently perfected them! :O)

Coconut Curry Tofu
Loved this! I followed most of the directions. However, I drained, diced my tofu, and then placed it on a cookie sheet in a 175 degree oven for 30 minutes. I then browned it in a pan with coconut oil to give it a nice crispiness. I didn't add tofu into mixture until I added the bok choy. I used Curry Paste in place of curry powder. We also love spicy foods, so I added about 1/2 TB sriracha sauce. Served over Jasmine rice and it was delicious. We are not vegetarians but like to eat vegetarian a few times a week. This is a definite keeper recipe that we both loved. You can easily tweak it to your liking. Thank you very much for sharing! :O)

Cranberry Upside-Down Coffee Cake
This is one of the prettiest cakes! I made it for Thanksgiving this year. I followed the recipe exact, except, I changed the servings to 18, used an entire bag of cranberries, and I used my bundt cake pan. I was concerned after adding the sugar/butter mixture and the cranberries that I wouldn't have enough room. It worked perfectly! I generously greased the pan with shortening and removal was so easy. I will definitely be making this again! :O)
