I had every intention of making Miss Alix Cranberry Applesauce Muffins exactly as written.  But somehow, between than long journey from my laptop to the kitchen (like 3 steps), things began to change.  You all know EXACTLY what I mean ... the infamous changing of the recipe. So as I sit here… MORE

About this Cook
I'd rather make it than buy it. Natural, seasonal, and as organic as possible. Don't get me wrong - I'm only human (grin) - but I try.
My favorite things to cook
Copycat & cloned recipes, Mexican, Italian
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm trying to stop old post WWI & WWII traditions and go back to pre-letsjustbuyitofftheshelf cooking.
My cooking triumphs
Giving up overly processed and prepacked foods (without killing my family). Learning how to actually bake and make those things I used to just buy off a shelf.
My cooking tragedies
lol - too many to name. Beans and I still go 'round and 'round.

Chicken and Broccoli Alfredo
Could not believe how delicious this was! I rarely cook with canned soup products, but this is one recipe I'll be making over and over and over again. I did jazz up the chicken a bit by marinating it in a little olive oil, red pepper flakes, garlic, salt & pepper for a good hour or so - but aside from that stayed true to recipe. Will double the amount of broccoli next time (personal preference) ... didn't weigh our chicken, but used 1 large and 1 medium size breast so it was probably pretty close to a pound. Served with romaine salad and garlic bread. Hubs has already had 2 plates and is claiming the last portion for his lunch tomorrow. Snap to make. Oh - forgot - I didn't use Parmesan cheese - used freshly grated Pecorino Romano which was perfect.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies I
My granddaughter & I made these and we LOVED them! I did as so many others suggested, using half butter & half shortening and (with a halved recipe) used 1/4 c brown sugar, 1/2 cup regular. Ours required no refrigeration, baked up beautifully in 9 minutes, and had just the right amount of chocolaty flavor. Thanks so much for recipe!

Five Minute Ice Cream
GREAT! My only complaint was that I could taste granules of sugar in the finished product. Still we devoured. I'll probably cut down on the sugar next time, esp with sweet fruit, but all in all SO quick and SO easy :) Thanks so much for recipe!
