About this Cook
I don't cook for just one or two anymore, so if I'm going to take the time to make something, it has to be good enough to share. Because cooking and baking have to fall into place with my other hobbies, including woodworking and guitar, I don't don the kitchen apron as much as I used to.
My favorite things to cook
I'm not sure what I enjoy making the most, but my family loves it when I bake cookies or light, fluffy, buttery dinner rolls.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Every Thanksgiving either my sister or I will make heaps of the aforementioned dinner rolls...and they never go to waste. Waist, maybe.

Yeast Waffles
My family and I had both sweet and savory versions of this. The texture of the waffles is wonderfully moist on the inside and crispy on the outside. They were substantial but not heavy, too. With bacon and cheese in the middle, these were great for brunch, and a blueberry waffle with syrup at the end felt like dessert. Be aware that the batter is more like dough in consistency, but the waffles turn out great. I will be making these for years to come.

Baked Flan
This was quick and easy. Beware, unless your blender is industrial size, this could be too much for it. The only problem I had is that my family members couldn't wait for it to cool and wanted to eat it all as soon as it came out of the oven. That's a good problem!

Fluffy and Delicious Pancakes
I have made this without the cinnamon and vanilla numerous times and the pancakes are wonderful! The pancakes are fluffy, moist, and have a wonderful texture. I have a few warnings to those who are unfamiliar with this recipe: 1. do NOT add the vanilla. In my experience this negates the effect of souring the milk and the pancakes end up flat. 2. DO mix dry ingredients and wet ingredients separately and then just barely combine immediately before cooking. This is not the batter to make in advance or let sit a while. 3. Do not over mix. Any mixing beyond combining takes fluffiness away from the pancakes. 4. Cook them low and slow. These will burn before cooking through if you don't use low, even heat to cook them. a cast-iron skillet works great. 5. Make a big batch once you have confidence. These will be popular. My family of three adult eaters and two children quadruples the recipe and ends up with just a couple single-serving leftovers for the freezer. But then, we really like pancakes. Enjoy!
