Linda and John
About this Cook
I moved to the Netherlands in 2007 from San Jose, Calif. after reuniting with John who I had dated 20 years earlier. He's Dutch, so we decided to do it now so we can travel europe when he retires in 2020. Yet another chapter begins....
My favorite things to cook
You name it...I'll try it.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My sisters and I used to get together an make Crescent Rolls (dough made with cottage cheese rolled out, cut into triangles, spread with mixture of nuts cinnamon sugar and butter, rolled up and shaped like crescents...bake and eat wow) now I'm 9000 miles away from them but they are with me as I make them for hubby and me.
My cooking triumphs
Traded Cream of Mushroom soup for enchilada sauce in chicken, onion and cheese enchiladas and it turned out amazing.
My cooking tragedies
added fresh mushrooms (too many) to one of my enchilada dishes and oops, I forgot how much liquid those little guys put came out verrry soggy...tasty but wet.

Baking Powder Biscuits I
I loved this easy recipe, but I only made it for 6 biscuits since it's just hubby and I. I also used cold butter instead of shortening, since I can't get shotening here in Holland. I patted the dough out and made cut biscuits instead of drop style. I found them flaky and tasty.
