About this Cook
Hello! My name is Jennifer Johnson (but you can call me Jenny) and I am a junior in college pursuing a BA in History. I recently got married to my long term boyfriend and best friend Skyler. Creating new dishes for the two of us to enjoy is one of my favorite things in life; there is nothing more satisfying than sitting down to a hearty, homemade meal with the ones you love.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook all kinds of things, but my favorites include baked chicken alfredo, chicken and dumplings, breakfast casseroles, pies and breads. Kneading dough for fresh loaves of bread or batches of rolls has become a sort of stress relief method for me, not to mention the smell of hot-out-of-the-oven bread is the coziest, most comforting smell I can imagine!
My cooking triumphs
Making a passable pie crust for once!

Lavash Cracker Bread
Very nice! The only thing I did different was brushing on some olive oil and sprinkling them with sea salt before putting them in the oven. I recommend doing exactly what the recipe says and rolling out ALL the dough paper thin before putting the first batch in the oven. I was scrambling to roll them out between batches; my mistake! Very light, crunchy, and strong enough to support my boyfriend's super bowl cheese dip!

Whipped Shortbread Cookies
I made a few changes to the recipe after reading the reviews. I didn't add the cherries, just made them plain. I highly recommend adding a half cup of flour and another 1/4 cup of powdered sugar to get the right consistency; not too runny, not too firm. Be sure to whip them really good! I also added a pinch of cinnamon and a little vanilla, but I do that with just about all my baked goods :) I rolled mine into small balls and baked them for about 5-7 minutes longer than what the recipe says. Melt in your mouth goodness, my boyfriend loves them!

Oven Fresh Seasoned Potato Wedges
I love this recipe! I made a few changes; I used a tad bit more Parmesan than was called for, and vegetable oil instead of olive. I used a 9x13 inch baking sheet at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, and then upped the temperature to 425 degrees for 15 minutes. They turned out crispy on the outside and soft on the inside. Delicious!
