About this Cook
I am very comfortable in the kitchen and love cooking and baking. I want to enjoy cooking as easily as baking.
My favorite things to cook
If I may bakers "bake." I enjoy making doughs from scratch and am very comfortable with old-fashioned cake yeast baking and could make a sponge for 120 qts. rye bread in minutes without any enhancers etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Our family business specialized in Czech and Am. bakery products, but alas the 40 pan hearth oven is sadly no more.
My cooking triumphs
I used 55 lbs. of cake yeast for the last holiday I baked, all for hand-made products. What fantastic production for a small business.
My cooking tragedies
I knew all my routine recipes off the top of my head and weighed many things by eye. A younger boss simply could not understand. However, if you leave the yeast out, the dough will never raise! 30 qts of Sweet bread!

B.L.A.T. Wraps
I loved the simplicity. The only thing I did differently was to microwave the bacon. Watermelon and a BLAT!

Pumpkin Muffins with Cinnamon Streusel Topping
Very simple and could be simpler. As a handcraft baker, we developed fail-safe shortcuts to speed up production. I put all the dry ingredients in and then mixed them with the whip to be sure the baking soda was well dispersed. Next, I put in the softened butter. In the morning, I added the two eggs, pumpkin and water while mixing with the batter attachment, not the whip. I made 12 large muffins and 12 mini muffins for the grand kids. One major difference that will definitely improve taste and how well they keep, I used pastry flour. We would never have used a standard patent flour in muffins. Standard patent is simply wrong and dries the product out. The old bakers would have knocked me in the head if I had made that mistake. I miss those guys. Anyway, this will result in moister muffins.
