About this Cook
My cooking tragedies
Tried making rice souffle the first year I was married. It was the most awful thing that I have ever made! It raised and browned beautifully, but tasted like I would imagine wallpaper paste to taste.

Chicken and Dumplings I
This is easy, quick, and as tasty as your chicken broth. Mmmmm! I do take a shortcut and let me daughters drop it by the teaspoonful into the hot broth to cook instead of rolling it out and cutting it. I know, but it still tastes so very good.

Eclairs II
This seems to be the same recipe that my mother used to fix for the family. If we were lucky, she would fix it every other month or so. Unfortunately, there were a lot of us, so we never got more than one. I fixed it exactly as the recipe was written. I found the chocolate frosting to be on the thick side and just thinned it with a tiny bit of milk until it flowed correctly. The only difference between this recipe and my mother's, is that she would occasionally give us a can of Hershey's chocolate syrup and use that instead of melting the squares. I like the squares better.

Steakhouse Wheat Bread for the Bread Machine
I did a lot of what teadrinker did to adjust the recipe for a 2lb loaf: 1 1/4 cup water, 3/4 tsp salt, 2 cups bread flour, 1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour, 2 tsp yeast. I left the honey, sugar, and cocoa powder the same as original recipe. I did not have any coffee, so left it out. This was wonderful! It cut nicely, rose to the top of the pan, and was heavy without being a brick. The what flour was freshly ground right before I made the bread and I have noticed that ww flour makes loaves quite a bit heavier. This was still good. It was slightly sweet, but not cloying. All we did to it was spread fresh butter on top. There was only a bit left this morning.
