About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Anything healthy and tasty- I love improvising my own recipes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every year for Christmas my Mom makes an assortment of Christmas casseroles for breakfast, including a truly addictive coffee cake. I've started joining her in the kitchen, and though I hate knowing that I'm eating nothing but butter and sugar, I love being a part of it!
My cooking tragedies
When I was a child I attempted to make grilled cheese sandwiches. I asked my dad how, and he described it to me as best as he could, but left me to my own devices. I misunderstood, and though I thought it was weird, I put them on the grill cheese-side down. Needless to say, they didn't turn out too well. The grill bore the outline of a piece of burned bread for years to come. Actually, it still bears the scar of that sandwich.

Wheat Germ Whole-Wheat Buttermilk Pancakes
These were ok; they were tasty right off the griddle, but once they sat for a while they got floppy and spongy. They had good flavor, but weren't very fluffy or thick.

Chocolate Pancakes
These were ok at best. I had to add baking powder and a bit of extra flour to thicken up the otherwise thin batter. I also added banana slices, and swapped some of the chocolate chips for peanut butter chips. My chocoholic brother described these as "brown pancakes"- all the chocolate flavor came from the chocolate chips & the nutella we slathered on top. I found these really thin and rather "rubbery", as mentioned by other reviewers. I definitely prefer "Good Old Fashioned Pancakes" with chocolate chips, topped with nutella or fudge sauce if I'm looking for a real treat.

Cranberry Walnut Bread
I love this bread, but I find it a total pain to make the traditional way; the dough is incredibly stick and needs way too much extra flour. So, I've adapted the recipe to fit with the Artisan Bread in 5 Minutes a Day method. Increase water to 1/3 cup at yeast to 3/4 TBSP. Add yeast to water & buttermilk. Add honey, melted butter, egg. Dump the dry ingredients on top, and stick your hand in and mix until just combined, wetting your hands if you need to in order to get all try dry ingredients incorporated. DO NOT KNEAD. Now just cover and let the dough sit on your counter or somewhere warm for 2-5 hours. Then refrigerate for up to 5 days (because of the raw egg). Whenever you want some bread, pull off a chunk of dough & shape it. Let it warm up & rise a bit (this will take about 1.5 hrs, it'll be 'wobbly' when it's ready). Then bake as per usual. This is much easier than struggling with the incredibly sticky dough.
