Esther's Hot Cross Buns
About this Cook
I am the wife of a Lutheran LCMS pastor, and the mother of three wonderful children: Ethan, age 7, Zachariah, age 5, and Emma, age 3.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake cookies for my family, and I also love making homemade soup and Chinese food.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always have the same Christmas cookies every year; and hot cross buns at Easter. It also wouldn't be Thanksgiving without my mom's traditional stuffing!
My cooking triumphs
I've finally triumphed the perfect pizza crust dough that I make in the breadmaker, and also the yummiest hot cross buns, thanks to this website!
My cooking tragedies
I had a bad bout of egg-drop soup when we were first married, and then there was the hot dog pie. Yuck.

Rhubarb Cheesecake
Very easy! My variation: my husband is not crazy about sour cream, so instead of the sour cream topping, I mixed the sour cream and vanilla into the cheesecake like you would a regular cheesecake. It turned out great! I did have to bake it 30 minutes longer, too.

Sweet and Sour Green Beans
I love these beans! I use a very similar recipe, although it has a scant cup of sugar and no salt and pepper. After cooking the liquid until thickened, I add the green beans and sprinkle bacon on top, then bake at 350 until it is bubbly. Yummy!!
