About this Cook
I am Jenny. A hard working girl who likes to bake twice as hard. My co-workers love me and hate me at the same time. ;)
My favorite things to cook
Brownies. Even though I always bake batches then never eat them, I love how they are all the same, yet, all different. Plus they are easy!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't so much have cooking traditions as mere eating traditions. Thanksgiving we all get our own dessert pie. Period. A whole pie to ourselves, yum. That is a tradition to keep. This is the only time of year that we all get our favorite pies, any other time we have to share! New Years is a no bake/easy bake day, normally consisting of various finger foods: sushi, cheese and crakers, shrimp, not to mention leftovers from Christmas gift baskets!
My cooking triumphs
Baking my own croissants was a big one - and actually getting compliments on them!
My cooking tragedies
I get very frustrated when things don't turn out well, especially when I am unsure if I am doing it correctly. I do not have any friends that bake, so I do not have anyone to double-check with or ask questions to, which makes it hard when I make a mistake (or, if I'm not making a mistake but worry that I may be!). I have been known to completely throw out an entire bowl of batter, or a whole batch of cookies, simply because they did not turn out how I imagined (even if they still taste good, I get so disheartened).

Sloppy Joes II
Yum yum! This tastes JUST like the name brand, only better since I know it doesn't have all sorts of nasty preservatives in it! We love garlic so I added in three minced garlic cloves with the onions/peppers. I also minced up some jalapeno slices too. Yum.

Baked Kale Chips
YUM! Healthy, crispy, delicious, and oh-so-addicting! I made them for a party and I just kept munching on them - they nearly didn't make it to the event! Lol. WILL MAKE AGAIN!
