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!!

Salsa is the fresh condiment you can make at home and put on everything.
