Little Sweet Me
About this Cook
Life is full of flavor, Slow Down and take time to savor it.
My favorite things to cook
Mediterranean food is number one always, but i love to cook any pallet pleasing recipes i come by and so far that has been recipes from every continent.
My cooking triumphs
Learning to bake without burning my cakes was my biggest triumph, it did take me and my oven coming to a truce that i promised not to rip it out and throw it in the trash if it would stop turning the temperature to incinerating levels because the wind blew my dial a little.
My cooking tragedies
Wow this is a long list and quite embarrassing. SO Next question please! Yes i burnt a boiled egg when i was 13 :-(

Microwave Mississippi Mud Cake I
I found my self to be craving chocolate late last night so i found this recipe and decided to make it right away. I let my son try it today and in the words of my 8 year old "i give this recipe infinity stars because it was so so yummy!!". I must admit i totally concur. I did omit the nuts and marshmallows because i did not have any. And i put it into a square pyrex dish. It only took 14 minutes to cook. I found it DEVILISHLY rich so i did not add the frosting. This is a very easy brownie cake (because that is what it is). This is going to be a super Keeper. I love the thought of having it cooking while we are eating dinner so it will be all warm and perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

Jay's Signature Pizza Crust
Oh My Goodness! This was soooo good. I didn't change not one ingredient. I used my bread machine to do all the kneading and rising. I then did the final punch, turned it out gave it a little dusting with flour kneaded it twice and shaped it to fit my pizza stone that i pre-heated. I let it sit on the hot stone a few minutes to let the heat penetrate through the dough a little. I spread some pizza sauce on it then topped it with bacon, grilled chicken, salami, roasted red onion, red, green and yellow bell peppers and a lot of cheese. It was done in 20 minutes. Thanks Jason for a truly top notch recipe!

Donut Muffins
I made these today and i just I loved this recipe, i did add and extra 2 Tablespoon of milk as i found the batter a little too stiff. I have a mini donut pan and used that. I put the batter into a piping bag with a wide opening and piped the batter into the pan to insure even distribution. They baked in 13 minutes. I did dunk some in the cinnamon sugar but i also melted some chocolate, dipped the tops in to cover and then sprinkled some sprinkles on top of the chocolate. They looked and tasted AMAZING!!! A definite favorite in this house.
