Chicken Pot Pie II
About this Cook
I think secretly I belong in my own cafe, serving up espressos, muffins, breads and granolas.
My favorite things to cook
Cranberry granola, espresso wheat germ brownies, muffins, breads. I love broiling veggies/chicken.
My cooking triumphs
I am so flattered that family and friends love my baking/granola especially. The cafe in my town named the granola after me! I've made and mailed bags of it to friends and family! It's fun to create with my hands and have my creations be appreciated!

Banana Banana Bread
This is an interesting recipe because my previous go to always called for baking powder and this one has baking soda, less sugar and less butter. The bread comes out more dense in my opinion, and I only cooked it for 50 minutes and it was DONE! I added tons of chocolate chips which was a good call otherwise the bread would have been dense and slightly boring. It was an odd departure from my traditional Le Cordon Bleu recipe but for some reason my kids keep asking for more! will make again

English Royalty Chocolate Chip Scones
Great recipe! Made these this morning and already ate half the batch! I heeded the advice of previous reviewers and added a total of 8 tbs of OJ (after panicking when I noticed I wasn't getting any 'dough') and a total of 5 tbs butter. I decreased sugar to 1/4 cup. I added 2 tbs of wheat germ and can probably increase that next time. It's a great base recipe and I see myself making different variations for sure! Thanks!

One Bowl Chocolate Cake III
Really great recipe, simple. I increased cocoa (per recommendations to 1 cup). I also decreased sugar by 1/3 and would probably reduce it a bit more. I like the flavor of cocoa over the sugar. Was curious about sea salt, which I used instead of table salt (prefer it in all my cooking) and it didn't affect the flavor noticeably. This is a keeper.
