Everybody loves a three-day weekend.  I spent mine cooking.  I made four new dishes, three of which went over well.  As one of my co-workers stated, "Batting .750 will get you into the Hall of Fame." We started off on Sunday (I don't know where Saturday went!) with a Chicken and… MORE

About this Cook
I'm 29 and live with my boyfriend. I'm trying to eat healthier, so between that and trying for some variety so that he doesn't always have to eat the same thing, I'm trying to learn some new recipes. I like quick and easy, but I'm now also trying to use fresh ingredients.
My favorite things to cook
Beef stroganoff, marinated pork loin, chicken stir fry with olive oil, meatloaf
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom and I used to make cookies all the time. We had to make a double batch of the dough in order to get a normal amount of cookies because my dad and brothers would keep eating the dough off the pan.
My cooking triumphs
I make great peanut butter fudge. I also once made a strawberry roll cake that looked and tasted pretty impressive.
My cooking tragedies
Cheesecake. It doesn't like me.

Jam Filled Butter Cookies
I make these on occasion, and they always go over well. A couple of tips: Make sure you buy a seedless jam. Seeds in the middle of your cookies are unappealing. All Fruit seedless preserves work well. Second, if you have a spherical measuring spoon without a lip, these work perfectly both for making an impression in the cookies and for getting the jam into the center neatly.

Mimi's Giant Whole-Wheat Banana-Strawberry Muffins
I have made these several times, and we love them with one exception--the chunks of frozen strawberry just turn into big soggy messes. So I made them again using fresh strawberries diced into fairly small pieces. This was better. They were still a bit soggy around the strawberries, but because the chunks were smaller, it wasn't as noticeable and the muffins held together better. I will still make these again, but next time I might omit the strawberries altogether.
