Jiffy Cinnamon Rolls
Brunch cream cheese muffins
Yummy and fun to make!
About this Cook
I have a husband who thinks I am a not so great cook, but luckly two daughters that like my cooking. I try lots of new recipes and OK well some are good and some bad...don't ask me about rainbow chicken...eek!LOL! I love to paint doll houses, other crafts, I am a budding writer and spend free time with my girls and husband watching movies, playing Wii and gardening.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, Muffins, quick breads, salsas, salads, and trying different ways to cook beef, I CAN NOT cook beef at all, but make great accidential jerkys.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cinnamon rolls that my grandma and mom made, now I make them each Christmas. My daughters and I bake tons of cookies each christmas and have friends come over to decorate them all. OK so the kitchen gets decorated too, but thats ok once a year and the cats like the frosting...:)
My cooking triumphs
Watermelon Salsa, brownies, Cookies! Cookies! Cookies!
My cooking tragedies
Rainbow chicken, never substitute fruity pebbles for rice krispies in rice krispie covered baked chicken! YUCK! :)

Strawberry Jam
YUM! I made just a half batch of this recipe, used nly 1 1/2 cups of sugar and it was amazing! I had some last night when it cooled and just a teeny bit on toast this morning. Better than store bought and oh so early. I am going to a friends for dinner this weekend and bringing a jar as a thankyou , just because it was so easy to make I have to share the treat! Thanks for posting!

Anna's Chocolate Chip Cookies
YUM These turned out great! I did only teeny changes that fit our house. I used a teaspoon sea salt, because thats what we like with our chocolate and I baked at 325 degrees for 13 or so minutes watching carefully, my oven is having its personal issues, hot and cold flashes me...aging gracefully! But great cookies, it is already taped in my "Best Recipe" cookbook I will be giving to my daughters when they grow up ! THANKS !

Cowboy Oatmeal Cookies
Yum, easy and fast. I did however make a few modifications due to lack of items. I used 1\2 c brown sugar-packed and 1/2 cup granulated brown sugar to amke the full cup of brown sugar, I did add 1 cup of white sugar as directed too. I used bread flour in place of all purpose flour. This idea from Alton Browns chewy choc. chip cookies. I made them in small teaspoon fulls and when just lightly browned I took out of the oven and sprinkled lightly with white sugar. YUM! I did not add the butterscotch chips, made just plain oatmeal cookies, no additions. WILL MAKE AGAIN and AGAIN!
