About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Anything baked. Carbs are great.
My cooking triumphs
Finally mastering a good low sugar carrot muffin. One of my co-workers actually called later that night to tell me it was the best muffin she'd ever had!
My cooking tragedies
The reason the kitchenaid mixers have spatter shields is to use them-- I splattered a coworker from head to toe with confectioners sugar when she came over to my home. The there was the time we found that hard boiled eggs will explode (& hit the ceiling) if left on burner without water. Absent minded cooking can be tragic.

Caramelized French Toast
a bit intense, but good all of the same.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
Very good and very simple. This also dresses up well by adding various spices (depending on taste-- I'm a rosemary sage girl myself).

Miriam's Not-So-Secret Challah
One of the best challah recipes I've used-- the loaf was 6x the dough height and had a great sweet but not too sweet texture. It also worked very well in density for the day after french toast. I did change the order I added the ingredients as another reviewer suggested (e.g., yeast + 1 c. warm water + white sugar, wait 5 min, then add brown sugar, 1 c. water, eggs, and slowly add in flour and salt.).
