About this Cook
I've taken a break from labor-intensive cooking, but I'm back! I must say, I missed homemade bread like something serious.
My favorite things to cook
If I can bake it, best believe I'll try it. Desserts are still my strong point, but I struggle with pie crusts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
"Ashlee get out of my kitchen!" - Mom
My cooking triumphs
-Three-tier video game themed cake. -Homemade mayonnaise. THAT was a workout.
My cooking tragedies
-Three batches of (failed) fondant. I was covered in a layer of sugar for hours. -A potato soup that turned into glue.

Sweet Baby Carrots
This is the second time I've made this recipe. DELISH! I rarely have fresh carrots on hand, but canned works well. I drain the carrots and "steam dry" them in the pan as suggested with fresh cooked carrots. The given amounts DO make a ton of sauce, but as the author said, it's best to sop it up with bread or double the amount of carrots (or halve the amount of sauce, of course). Regardless of how you do it, these carrots are a TREAT!

Black Magic Cake
Oh. My. God. I recently made this for a birthday and it was OUT OF THIS WORLD good. The Birthday Boy requested almond butter-cream frosting, which was also amazing, but incredibly sweet and not for this cake. I think next time I'll use a cream cheese frosting or skip it all-together. This cake can definitely hold it's own without a frosting. Absolute MAGIC.

Sweet Dinner Rolls
These rolls are fabulous as written. I've made them so many times, with many variations. I have a breadmaker, but I prefer to make these the traditional way. The dough is very easy to work with. The taste is amazing. I've used a few variations over the years; Such as all water and no milk. I've replaced the egg with oil. I've added herbs and spices into the butter mixture. And as the recipes states, wonderful for cinnamon AND orange sweet rolls. This is a great starting point for making amazing rolls your family will love. And remember: It's just food. Play with it!
