Manella's Whipped Scotch Cookies
About this Cook
I live in Upstate NY with my 13 year old daughter and husband. My husband started as an over the road truck driver this past year, and it's been a little lonely. I work full time as a mental health therapist, social worker by education. I have been married about 4 years. Since meeting my husband my cooking skills and interets has developed quite a bit. My ex hated food and said if he could have lived by taking a pill alone he would have (instead of eating). So opposite of me. Anyway, my husband loves to try new foods and is open to new recipes. My daughter is growing more picky as she hits the difficult teenage years. So much fun! My husband and I occasionally enjoy cooking together. I am a total animal lover. I have two cats and two boxers.
My favorite things to cook
I like to use my my slow cooker. I think it is so awesome to come home after a hard days work to dinner already made. I like to bake as well, but am have to admit being very fearful of baking anything with yeast. I tend to make at least one new recipe a week to keep things interesting around here. I tend to make a lot of "comfort food" types of dishes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am Jewish and so I love the Jewish foods.... but have to admit that I don't know how to make most of them. Grandma is still alive and well, but never really taught me how to make Matzo Ball soup, kugel, or other Jewish treats. Boo hoo. I used to love it when my mom would bake homemade cheesebread and homemade soup for dinner. To this day, she says she doesn't know how she made all those homemade meals and "from scratch" dishes while working full time and raising two kids.
My cooking triumphs
I consider it a truimph when I make dinner and they praise my cooking. My daughter is so picky at times, and things she used to love now will complain about eating. So, anytime someone in this house says they really like something, it feels wonderful!
My cooking tragedies
Thank god haven't had too many. I know when I was a kid (my mom loves to tell this story), that I made cookies with 1/2 cup of salt instead of a 1/2 teaspoon. Ha! She said she felt bad, so she tried to eat one anyway.

Haluski - Cabbage and Noodles
Very good! Made to go with my corned beef and it was a perfect accompaniment! I used a medium head of cabbage and it was the right ratio for us. Baked about 35-40 min. I did add some garlic salt and garlic powder when I seasoned it before baking. I took one suggestion and had mine with sour cream and in my opinion, it took it over the top. I'm glad it made a lot, cause I cant wait to eat if for the next few days.

Braised Corned Beef Brisket
Supper yummy! I'm not a fan if corned beef but after reading reviews and hearing folks rave in the buzz, I decided to make this for St. Patricks day. Do glad u did! I rinsed my roast, dried, and painted in the bouquet, then browned per instructions. I took Baking Nana's suggestion and wrapped in foil a few times. Mine leaked so I was glad I had it on a tray. I smelled burning, but didn't realize it had leaked so I stopped cooking at four hours thinking it was burnt. Let sit in oven after turning it off for about an hour and holy smokes was it good! DELICIOUS! I guess I can't say I don't like corned beef anymore. Thank you Mauigirl! Fantastic!

Moist Cranberry Orange Bread
Like it claims, this is very moist. Yum! Used frozen cranberries which works fine. The way the ingredients are combined per direction s is a bit different from the average quick bread, but I followed directions with no problems. I did lightly dice my mandarin oranges. Note that I used my largest loaf pan and there was too much batter for it. It was right to top and was fearful it would poof and go all over my oven. So I ladeled out some and put in a prepared small loaf pan. My cooking time for both was longer than stated, so just keep an eye on it. Tastes amazing!
