Egg Bread
About this Cook
I live in Seattle, and wherever my travels take me, I'll always call Seattle home. I reside with a lovely boyfriend and my dachshund Frank. I'm a prep chef at a local restaurant and a catering baker for the same company. So I'm always making new fun recipes. As well as prowling for the wonderful, helpful and plentiful recipes on AR.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake. And although i'm constantly learning, It's my escape...The smell of bread in the oven is my anti-anxiety drug. I love to experiment with different desserts, Mexican and love cooking anything breakfast.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas cookies every year with my cousin, mom and aunt, who makes the best icing ever!
My cooking triumphs
Not killing my sourdough starter...again...

Chantal's New York Cheesecake
I used this recipe for a catered party at work. It went over so well I made another for the other cooks. Garnished with candied orange peels and simple hulled fresh strawberries, this was wonderful, smooth and delicious. New York cheesecake is a classic and this recipe was no exception. Thank you Taliesen! The only thing I changed on my second batch, was used toasted ground hazelnuts in the crust mixture, about a half cup or so. wonderful

Kalacs (Hungarian Cinnamon Swirl Bread)
The day after baking, this bread takes on this really delicious crusty flakey texture on the outside, but still so soft on the inside from all that wonderful sugar and cinnamon. I didn't double the amount of filling, but I didn't measure it either. I mixed and matched until it looked and tasted right to me. Already have requests for more.

Fried Ice Cream
coated with honey bunches of oats with macerated strawberries! YUM! Also tried a variation of mango and green tea ice cream minus the cinnamon and added a touch of sugar and topped with fresh raspberries and whipped cream. wow
