Chocolate Chip Sourdough Muffins
About this Cook
I don't list cooking as one of my hobbies or favorite things to do, but once in a while, I get in the kitchen and have fun. Baking and desserts are my favorite things to make, since I was a kid.
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking Thanksgiving dinner and Christmas cookies! I get rave reviews every year, since I found "Ma Lipo's Turkey Dinner" on several years ago. -It's fabulous! I love to bake sugar cookies, gingerbreac cookies, and others for Christmas, and I like to make coconut chews and, my own twist on peanut butter cookies - chocolate chip/peanut butter cookies. - My kids BEG me to make them! YUM!!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I make shamrock sugar cookies with green, vanilla frosting - that I add a bit of almond extract to - for St. Patrick's Day, and I like to make Christmas cookies, and I'm trying to start a tradition of making homemade mincemeat with fab. recipe I found on this site. It's not like so-called "mincemeat" from the store; it's YUMMY!!! I'm trying to grow my own pie pumpkins (they didn't grow this year :o( ) every year for pumpking pie. I grew them a couple of years ago, and they made the BEST pumpking pie ever!!! SO much better than store boughten pumpkin in a can!
My cooking triumphs
My husband is SO thankful when I stand by the stove, when cooking grilled cheese sandwiches, and remember to turn them - not burn them. :oD MY ADVICE TO THE YOUNG: I started cooking by following recipes EXACTLY. Once you get the hang of that, then buy some jars of dried herbs to experiment with - the basics: oregano, basil, bay leaves, cumin, sage, olive oil; also: ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg; and don't forget to use: garlic, onion, and bell peppers (green or red). You'll learn what tastes good with what. You'll be better than me in no time! :o)
My cooking tragedies
-every time I've burned the simple things, trying to do something besides cooking at the same time.

Husband's Delight
My husband likes it. Of course, he loves sour cream and cheese. I added the taco seasoning to meat, used two cups of sour cream, eight oz of cream cheese, and about three - four cups of shredded cheddar on top. Needed more salt and some ground pepper.

Mexican Casserole
I wasn't crazy about this dish. I followed it exactly - almost. I only used 1 T of chili powder, because I can't have dishes that are very hot. I would try making it again and using taco powder or adding cumin. My husband liked it but wasn't crazy about it, either. It was easy to make and didn't take long.

Amish White Bread
This bread is absolutely delicious! The only problem I have - which is not a big one - is that it tastes like a type of sweet bread. So, if you are wanting regular white bread, cut the sugar down to 1/3 c. It's and excellent sweet bread, though! I've also added about a teaspoon of cinnamon and about a cup of cranraisins to this recipe & my family loved it!
