About this Cook
I'm from an eclectic heritage of European immigrants to the US. Home cooking is a tradition for us. It not only satisfies our basic human need for healthy food, but it brings us together and sometimes making food ourselves is really the only way to get some of the traditional foods we like.
My favorite things to cook
I mainly cook quick stuff because of time constraints, but I love to make long cooking and involved meals when there's time. My favorite foods to cook are fall foods: pies, applesauce, turkey, pork roast, ...
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making Finnish coffee bread (pulla) and Christmas cookies with my sister. We devastate the tiny kitchen in our mom's house for a few days while we make all the cookies and bread we'll pass around.
My cooking triumphs
Chile rellenos (not sure I spelled that right)
My cooking tragedies
The biggest mishap in the kitchen was an early attempt at corn dogs when my boyfriend poured the cream directly into the deep fryer instead of into the bowl where we were mixing the batter. We had to run for cover until the oil finished exploding.
Recipe Reviews 5 reviews
Perfect and easy! The recipe is very clearly written and works like a charm. I didn't want to get out the piping bag so I just made thin little pancake shapes and they fried up wonderfully. If you do this, make sure they are thin or the middles don't cook through (they were tasty anyway and there's nothing in them that makes the raw dough dangerous). People who had trouble with them browning too quickly: your oil is too hot. It's not the recipe's fault.

Pain de Campagne - Country French Bread
The recipe turned out very nicely. The instructions though left me guessing in a few places, particularly the part about putting flour on a towel and making seams in the bread. But, what I got in the end was quite tasty! Also, I would add the salt earlier next time. In spite of kneading quite a bit, I ended up with some salty spots.

English Muffins
So good! It was pretty dry the day I made mine and I only used about 5 1/2 cups of flour. I probably should have tried to get more in because they deflated a little when I picked them up to put them in the pan. But they were still delicious. One important note: don't toss out the scraps when you're done cutting out the rounds. Cook them up first and eat them as snacks while you cook up the big ones. :)
