About this Cook
I love love LOVE to cook, and at times dream of owning a restaurant. I'm also an avid baker at the bequest of my sweet tooth.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Dad's christmas breakfast :)
My cooking triumphs
The best chocolate chip cookies I ever made happened completely by accident. I thought I had ruined them by dropping half of an egg (shells and all) into the batter. I spent forever tracking down the egg shells and somehow got them all. The cookies were light, fluffy, and fantastic.
My cooking tragedies
The first time my fella and I cooked together, he was really trying to impress me and we made london broil. He'd never used a broiler before, and neither had I. We smoked up his whole apartment and set off the fire alarm. The good news is that the food actually turned out!

Oven-Fried Pork Chops
Good stuff! We left out the butter (dieting) and baked the porkchops on a wire rack on a baking sheet (same amount of time, same temp). The pork chops were juicy and tender, the crust crisp and flavorful. I even had a leftover chicken breast that I gave the same treatment as the porkchops. My husband RAVED about the chicken, and he's not really a chicken lover. Great recipe/method. Highly recommended!

Clone of a Cinnabon
Really nice texture to the roll, came out excellent, but I can't say its my favorite cinnamon roll recipe. Something is missing... Also rated 4 stars instead of five because it lacks directions for people without bread machines. I had to dig and find further instruction in comments.

Bacon-Flavored Dog Biscuits
Its official, Sophie loves 'em. Made recipe as directed. Next time I'll use peanut butter. The bacon scent was a bit strong in our house after making them.
