About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I love making things mini and bite size. For example, mini cheese cakes, quices, banana muffins. My mini cupcake pans get tons of use!
My cooking triumphs
I have since conquered the cheesecake (see below)! I now know the basic requirements and frequently experiment with different types.
My cooking tragedies
I once tried to make a cheesecake and after baking it for over an hour it was still jiggly in the middle. I left it in for an additional half hour and finally gave up. It was in a springform pan and after I let it cool and tried to remove the springform, it flattened out on the cookiesheet that I have baked the whole thing on. Good thing I had it contained on something!

Sweet, Sticky and Spicy Chicken
I've made this recipe several times and have loved it each time. The first time, I put it over jasmine rice. The last two times I followed other's suggestions and dredged the chicken in flour before putting in the pan. I doubled the sauce part of the recipe but will half the does siracha as it was very spicy, but good. I took about half of the sauce before cooking and added some hot and sweet mustard and some sesame oil, salt and pepper and a little vinegar to make a vinaigrette. We served the chicken on salad with mandarin oranges, honey almonds, water chestnuts and topped with the dressing. It was fantastic!!!

Campbell's(R) Swiss Vegetable Casserole
I've been making this recipe for years and always serve it as a side to Chicken Parisian Crepes that I make. I love the addition of the sour cream to make it richer. For those who do not like swiss cheese, I've made it with muenster, but swiss is my favorite. To make things cook more quickly (and avoid crunchy vegetables), I often pre-cook the veggies in the microwave with a little water to speed things up. This is always a hit!

Sweet Dinner Rolls
I loved these rolls with the exception that I need to figure out how to avoid burning the bottom. The first time I made them following the recipe. I was using a dark pan and a gas oven so I thought maybe that was the problem. The second time I made them I added about 2 Tbsp. of honey (fantastic!) and baked them at a lower temperature (350), for less time (7-8 mins) on parchement in an electric oven. I thought for sure that would do the trick, but, they still burned. Next time (and I will make them again) I'll probably try 325 or 300 and watch them even more closely. They really are fantastic, even when I burn them!
