About this Cook
I am a housewife with two little rescued dogs who are my devoted little friends. Husband loves 'hot' suppers - not just thrown together although he's easy to please. We are seniors and enjoy our home and dogs!
My favorite things to cook
Love to bake coffeecakes, cakes and always bake our bread.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Italian spaggetti sauce and barbeque ribs are my hubbies favorites! Homemade bread always!
My cooking triumphs
Italian Spagetti sauce and Challah bread
My cooking tragedies
Burning dishes, of course. Also leaving cake or coffee cake too long in oven and thus drying it out....not a good thing!

Bread Machine Challah II
I agree with another lady that said the dough was so 'sticky'. I kept adding flour, more flour, etc. and ended up with 2 small loaves of rather heavy,dense breads.... not the two pleasing small loaves I was hoping for. I will not make this again.
