My favorite things to cook
I love to cook everything but I NEVER follow a recipe exactly as its written. Even if its written by me.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sugar Pie.!Something my great grandmother used to make and the recipe is now mine. Only problem is she never measured anything.

Cranberry Scones
This is a great base recipe. I made a few changes which is the only reason I have it a 3. Instead of nutmeg I used cinnamon, instead of cream I used a 1/2 cup of far free Greek yogurt. I did not add the nuts. I also cut the orange after zesting and used half of the juice. I just dropped spoonfuls onto the cookie sheet instead of shaping and cutting it. Amazing!!!

Steamed Mussels II
Fantastic! All I did was add about a tbsp of garlic! Definitely get some bread to soak up all the juices.

Overnight Blueberry French Toast
I previously made this recipe exactly as is and LOVED it. However my 4 year old isn't a huge fan of blueberries so I decided to switch it up this morning. I used: Whole loaf of challah bread 2 pkgs of cream cheese 1 jar of yellow plum jam 10 strawberries chopped 10 eggs splash of vanilla spalsh of maple syrup 3/4 cup sugar I put the bread in the bottom of a 9x13 clear backing dish. I then mixed the cream cheese and jam together and microwaved it in 30 second intervals until it was soft enough to blend. Stiring in between each interval. I put the strawberries over the bread and then spread the cream cheese/jam mixture over the strawberries and mixed it all together in the pan. Then I combined the rest of the ingredients and poured it over the top of the bread mixture. I then put it in the fridge overnight. It was awesome! I put extra syrup on the side for my family to use if they wanted it but it didn't really need any.
