Homemade Honeywheat Bread!
About this Cook
I am a 26 year old college graduate, wife and mother of 2. I love trying new recipes and having them ready when my family walks in the door from school or work. They absolutely love when I try new things because 10 times out of 10 they turn out delicious. Because of this I am addicted to the foodnetwork. My favorites are the Neely's and Giada De Laurentis. I have added a lot of their recipes to my personal recipe book that intend to pass down to my daughter once she marries and has her own family!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook any and everything. At the moment I am trying to put a foot into cooking Asian cuisine, but its a little intimidating. Hopefully I will make that step and love to cook Asian for myself instead of hitting up PF Changs every chance I get. Italian is definitely on the menu every week, Whether it be baked ziti, stuffed shells, spagetti, lasagna, chicken alfredo or chicken parmesan. I LOVE italian!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love cooking for thanksgiving that is my absolute favorite holiday. It has become more of a favorite holiday for me because I cook an entire meal for my family. I cook the traditional southern menu of Turkey and stuffing, cornbread, candied yams, collard greens, fried chicken or chicken-n-dumplings,macaroni and cheese and beef stew and rice. WE have all that food waiting for us when we come home after visiting with relatives for the holidays. I know once my grandmother and mother are long gone their tradition will live on.
My cooking triumphs
I had never tried let alone cooked lamb but I saw Giada make a lamb and Chianti vinaigrette dish and just had to try it, it looked delicious. This recipe turned out absolutely perfect the first time and is now a regular in my house! I love lamb!
My cooking tragedies
lol, um the first time I tried to make a homemade apple pie the bread was too dry, I didnt have a rolling pin so the dough looked rather funny. It tasted okay but It didnt turn out the way I wanted to that would have to be a tragedy. Since then I have upgraded my kitchen utensils and practiced at making that homemade crust!

Awesome Turkey Giblet Stock
Omigod this adds the best flavor to the turkey for the Holidays and it makes you just want to drink it it smells so good and leaves your home smelling GREAT! I have used this stock for the past two years on my thanksgiving turkey and its ALWAYS a success!

Honey Wheat Bread I
I really really really enjoyed this recipe, I believe the water in the oven made the bread a little softer than I like. But I will be making this recipe again :-)
