About this Cook
Due to severe and chronic back pain, I no longer work. On the very few good days I have I enjoy cooking and trying out different recipes. Even though I am a very picky eater, my hubby isn't, so even though I may not like a certain recipe, I will make it anyway for him.
My favorite things to cook
Breads, rolls and kind of desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
A couple of years ago, for Christmas, I had my 3 year old niece come over and we baked all sorts of different cookies, and peanut brittle, we put them in holiday containers and she gave them out as gifts. This past year, she remembered and wanted to do the same thing. So we did, and we added cupcakes to the goody boxes. I am looking forward to doing it again this Christmas with her.
My cooking triumphs
Baking with yeast. Tried many years ago and it was a disaster. Tried it again a few years ago and did better, although I still struggle with certain methods, I am improving. If the recipe doesn't come out right, I have a garbage eating german shepard that will eat it. I am also getting more comfortable with baking cookies.
My cooking tragedies
I decided that I was going to bake some dinner rolls and give them to my family members, in a gift basket with some other homemade goodies. I was in a hurry and didn't proof my yeast. All 5 batches of the rolls didn't rise at all. Needless to say, I learned my lesson, always proof the yeast. For it is easier to dump the water, sugar and yeast mixture, than to dump 5 batches of dough, when each batch took 4 1/2 cups of flour.
