(Obligatory disclaimer:  While Reynolds(R) did provide swag (in the form of parchment), I'm my own person and make my own opinions.  The end.) Weird blog topic, I know, but we always baked Christmas cookies with our dad.   He worked away during the week so we loved spending time with him (and… MORE

About this Cook
I like to eat and I tend to be a picky eater, therefor, I like to cook so I can be in control of what I eat. Thankfully, Mr. LTH eats everything and anything (except sweet potatoes and vinegar).
My favorite things to cook
I'm a very mood dependent cook: what I'm in the mood for dictates what I like to cook. I've found I really enjoy making new "faceless" recipes and adding a face to them.
My cooking triumphs
I consider everything that comes out of our kitchen and people enjoy/eat to be a triumph...
My cooking tragedies
Underbaked cakes + wire racks + oven to "finish cooking" = a very messy oven

Brownie-Blasted Cookies
These were a nice twist to two familiar favorites. I made two changes to the recipe: I added 1/2 bag of mini chocolate chips to the cookie dough (it just felt right) and I added an egg to the brownie mix because when I mixed it as written, it was way too dry and wouldn't blend. I used my large ice cream scoop to make large cookies and, as such, needed to increase the bake time to about 15 minutes. THANKS for the recipe!

Roast Beef and Cheddar Frittata
This was a great way to repurpose leftover roast beef. I chopped between 1-2 C of leftover bottom round roast in place of deli roast beef. Everything else was as written, with white pepper in place of black pepper. I baked it in a pie dish and it took close to an hour to set for me. THANKS for the recipe!

Chef John's Bourbon Glazed Carrots
I'm not typically a cooked carrot fan and I loved these!! The recipe instructions were spot on. I used baby carrots, sliced in half and halved the recipe. I used a honey bourbon and that worked very well. I really liked the heat the cayenne pepper added. I'd rate it 5 stars, but Mr. LTH hated them (he didn't even finish his). THANKS for the recipe!
