About this Cook
A preschool teacher who loves to be creative in and out of the kitchen.
My favorite things to cook
Soups, stews, anything breakfast-related, vegetarian meals, baking
My favorite family cooking traditions
Cooking together, especially breakfast (a very popular meal in my home as a child)and baking.
My cooking triumphs
I make a mean chicken soup, based on a recipe my great aunt used to make, and I get a lot of compliments on my baking.
My cooking tragedies
The first few times I tried to make pancakes...let's just say it didn't go well (I know, it sounds so easy, dont judge me...). Thankfully, my abilities in this regard, as well as my cooking skills in general, have gotten better over time.

Bean Rarebit
I served this over toast with a fried egg on top, like the recipe suggests, and it was DELICIOUS! And easy to make! I used skim milk, as it was all I had, and it didn't seem to make a difference. This is definitely a keeper!

All American Roast Beef
I followed the directions almost exactly. The only changes I made were not to tie it, and also to cut 3 long slits across the top of the roast and stuff these with sliced garlic cloves (3 large cloves). I thought that the cooking directions were spot on, the roast turned out perfectly and was delicious! The spices were just right. My hubby loved it too. I don't think we will be making a roast any other way from now on.

Chocolate Raisin Oatmeal Muffins
Overall, these are pretty good muffins. After reading the other reviews, I did make some changes. I used 3/4 cup all-purpose flour (minus 2 tablespoons) and 3/4 cup whole wheat flour, and I doubled the cocoa powder (which is why I reduced the flour by 2 tablespoons). I used quick cooking oats instead of regular oats, 1/2 cup raisins, and 1/2 cup bittersweet chocolate chips. I also used skim milk, and omitted the oil, instead using 1/2 cup applesauce, which seemed to make the batter the right kind of consistency (as I was adding the wet ingredients, I could see what others meant about the batter being too thick if you stick to the amount of liquid used in the original recipe). The muffins came out of the oven moist, with a slightly crusty top, and are quite tasty.
