Chase loves his bread!
About this Cook
I am married and I have an almost 5 year old son. What can I say? I like to cook. It's fun.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, breads, cakes, anything from the oven.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I am of Native American descent, so I like to make old favorites like fry bread, homemade pancakes, soups, baking things for people as gifts or on holidays.
My cooking triumphs
My baking is pretty wild. I don't get to do it as much as I would like, but thats probably a good thing!
My cooking tragedies
I once lost a page of a recipe that had been given to me for a spinach was the part that tells you to wilt the spinach in butter BEFORE adding into the crust and topping with eggs. I didn't know this and was wondering why my "raw" spinach was piled so high...I poured the eggs and ended up with a pile of inedible spinach, gooey eggs and an undone crust...I was smacking my forehead for days over that one!

Peanut Blossoms II
This is a really easy recipe and the kids & husbands just love them. I find them pretty sweet so I took out 1/2 C. white sugar & used good quality butter in place of the shortening. I also forgot to add vanilla but I liked it better because the peanut butter flavor shines through. Also, try them with mini peanut butter cups pushed in the top, really really good.

Cappuccino Mix
I'm in the southwest, so I wanted a mix that would work hot or iced, this one does the job. I went ahead and used 1 C. of coffee, left out the spices, and used Irish Creme flavored creamer instead of plain. My secret for smoother texture: I used powdered sugar in place of granulated, which works excellent in this recipe. I mixed this using 24 oz. hot water to 4 Tbsp. mix, put it over ice and topped it with a little shot of milk, really good! Finally a tasty (and cheaper) version of my favorite iced drink!
