About this Cook
I'm an American Artisan with a passion for handmade. Sbb1 is a small handmade business where I (Artisan Sbb1) design and construct original handmade eco-friendly functional art in my pet-free/smoke-free home studio. My Shop: Aside from sewing, knitting, crocheting, hand dyeing, painting landscapes on eco-friendly fabrics and reclaimed materials-I also enjoy cooking and baking using organic foods as my first option, exploring raw foods and overall living an all-natural lifestyle to the best of my ability.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy baking yeast breads by hand when I have the time to and use my bread machine when I'm short on time. I make great pancakes and cookies.
My cooking triumphs
This is a long list
My cooking tragedies
There were many, but the one that sticks out in my mind is the first time I ever used a Pyrex baking dish to bake chicken and went to add a little water to the stock. Well the water was very cold, and cracked/splintered the baking dish on contact (chicken ruined).

Chewy No Bake Granola Bars
Excellent recipe! Been searching for a good chewy granola bar recipe and found it. I wanted to make this as healthy as I could with what ingredients I had on hand. I used rolled oats entirely (was out of cut steel ones) raw local honey, grassfed butter (will experiment with ghee next batch) and rapadura mixed with a little blackstrap molasses in place of brown sugar. Crushed almonds, pecans and raisins were added (no other dried fruits on hand) and I didn't have crispy rice cereal either lol so I left it out and this recipe was still so so good and tasty. As an extra experiment I reserved a little of the mixture in a small bowl and poured in a little sprouted almond milk over it and gave it a taste...oh yes, great as a cold cereal too. Thank you for sharing this.

Better Brownies
This is a very good recipe, I omitted the stevia powder because I had none to use. I used almond milk instead of soy and sunflower oil instead of vegetable. Other than that this produced a rich, chocolatey, moist brownie that stood well covered on the counter. My husband loved them. Will make this often, thanks!

Easy Meatloaf
absolutely great tasting and very simple to make. I loved the sauce (next time I will make an extra batch to pour as a condiment). I took the advice of others to lessen the mustard and increase the ketchup. I had no brown sugar on hand so I used 2 tbs of white sugar and 2 tsp of molasses. I also sauteed the onions and I also served them with Paula Deen's cottage potatoes. This was an awesome meal! Thanks
