About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I'm really not so much of a cooker as I am a baker.
My cooking triumphs
I make the best cookies ever!
My cooking tragedies
One time I was hard boiling eggs and I left the kitchen to go do something. Well, I forgot about the eggs and about an hour later I heard a popping sound and suddenly remembered the eggs. I ran back to the kitchen to find that I had managed to blow up eggs... all over the kitchen.

I love biscotti, but am too frugal to buy it so I went searching for a recipe. This is the first I tried and I love it! So simple. Definitely keep your hands oiled when handling the dough. I also substituted vanilla for the anise. Next time I'll try a different flavor, vanilla was all I had on had at the time. Thanks Jandee!

Peanut Butter Dog Biscuits
The pups loved these! I didn't have flax seeds, so I used a little flax seed oil. Definitely required a lot of flour and I added a bit more oats as well. Like everyone said... it makes a huge batch, but I didn't mind because we had a lot of dogs to share with. Oh and for some of them, I cut strips and then scored the dough so that they could be broken into smaller bits later if wanted. Kind of a choose your size treat.

Maple-Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are good, but there really isn't much bacon flavor which is what i was hoping for. I might try them again and either put more bacon, or perhaps bacon on top. The actual cookie part wasn't the greatest either. I don't mean to sound completely negative. The idea is great and the maple extract was an excellent addition. If I do try these again, I'll tweak them a bit, but I appreciate the discovery!
