My French Onion soup
About this Cook
My Mom taught me to cook and she learned from her Mom. I also learned a bit from my Dad's Mom. Mom and I used to cook all the time together when I was growing up and we still do, recently we made home made plum jam together!
My favorite things to cook
French Onion Soup in a sourdough bread bowl, fondue from scratch including meat, cheese, and dessert fondues. I make a mean grilled cheese sandwich and chicken pot pie.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cookies during the holidays with my Mom.
My cooking triumphs
Beef bourguignonne from scratch, my first fondue attempt.
My cooking tragedies
You know I have had few but I can't remember specifics!

This recipe tasted great but needed tweaking to make it work. First I did not even come close to needing 4.5 cups of flour I barely used even 3 for the dough also as I tend to use the bread for mini pizzas or sandwiches the golf ball size was way too tiny and did mine more like tennis to base ball size which made a much more useful size for something other than finger food bread. I used no butter only oil. I tried the grilling method but found it very hazardous and difficult to really shape the bread. So instead I took a pizza stone and put it in my oven which I heated to 400 then I removed the stone spread a thin layer of oil on it and shaped the dough balls on it and baked it about 3-4 minutes for each side. Came out a bit lighter in color but tasted great. It took less time as I could cook more at one time than the stovetop grill method. Next time I think I will grab a plastic mat covered in plastic and try shaping the dough on that first then baking them. this made close to 11 pieces even with less flour and larger pieces.

Amber's Sesame Chicken
So-So I'm not sure if it was the five spice but this recipe had an after taste that was very unpleasant and tasted nothing like the Sesame chicken I've had at any of my local restaurants.

You are missing a key ingredient here, ICE! All the ingredients should be blended with ice. Also I would reccomend removing the banana we had this drink in Maui and they did not add banana and it is tastier without.
