Yummy Peanut Butter Balls
About this Cook
I love cooking and always trying to come up with new and yummy recipes for my family of 4 to enjoy. I'm pretty good at cooking and generally people love what I cook but I am always learning. And can laugh at my own cooking disasters!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking everything. But We eat a lot of chicken in my house and since I love baking and making delicious desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Chicken and Dumplings (noodles actually) has been handed down 4 generations and I have it nailed. The cooking for the holidays is also a big deal for the family. A tradition I hope to pass along to my children.
My cooking triumphs
I have learned how to cook a moist turkey. A keep my chicken juicy and tender. Most importantly I have learned patience in cooking. I also have finally learned how to cook bone in chicken so its Done and moist!
My cooking tragedies
Before I nailed Chicken and Noodles I some how caused a batch of noodles to disappear. I also have made Chocolate pie Soup by accident. I also made a pork tenderloin that was disgusting. And I had numerous run ins with in bone chicken.

Cinnamon Rolls II
CAME OUT GREAT!!!! I didn't have a bread machine so I just made it by hand. And they were wonderful. Although they did indeed take about 3 hours to prepare. Instead of using a bread machine I simply combined the warm water and milk with the Yeast and let it sit for 10 minutes. Then I Added the milk, butter and egg. And added all the dry ingredients that I had mixed. It is a little loose. But you can kneed more flour into it. Then I put it in a lightly greased bowl and let it set for 1 hour in a warm place. Punched it down and followed the directions at step 2. I also used Brown Sugar rather than white for spreading and used Pecans instead of walnuts. It was a HUGE HIT. Will DEFINATELY MAKE AGAIN!!

Old-Fashioned Pancakes
Can I just say WOW. I will never go back to boxed pancake mix. WOW. These came out light and fluffy and delicious. They make 8 pancakes when using 1/3 cup. My kids love helping me make them. And they love watching them puff up. when I flip those. I followed the recipe exactly and they came out perfect. They are so good we haven't even started adding fruit or even chocolate chips. I have to also say after watching the video of chef John. my pancakes come out a LOT fluffier. and a LOT thicker. I don't know why but they do.

Sweet Dinner Rolls
WONDERFUL!!!! I have always stayed away from making yeast rolls by hand. I found some good frozen ones you thaw out. I decided to try my hand at these. I didn't have a bread machine so I just made these in my mixer. WONDERFUL. I gave some to my mom. And NONE were left in my house. This will probably be my new go to roll recipe. THANKS for posting it.
