Me & the kids!
About this Cook
I'm a work at home mom of 2, office manager for our dog training business, homeschool teacher, and cook! Somewhere in there I love to try new recipes and share them with friends and family!
My favorite things to cook
Soups, challah, stir fry, anything sweet.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Seeing my five year old daughter make challah this year with me has been really fun. She tries to knead the dough, but it's so tough I usually have to step in and save her!
My cooking triumphs
Making yeast breads! My first few attempts I killed the yeast for one reason or another, so it was so exciting to get it right! Now I make homemade breads much more often and love the different textures & flavors I'm able to get. Sourdough is my new favorite!
My cooking tragedies
Alas, I cannot say my foray into character cakes has been wildy successful. I made an "Ariel" cake for my daughter 2 years ago, and she looked absolutely frightening! This year I did a Barbie cake & it turned out much better since I didn't have to do eyes or mouths!

Sour Cream Bundt Cake
This was really simple and went great with fruit & whipped cream. My yellow cake mix had pudding in it so I made the recipe exactly as written. The recipe is a little confusing because you do also add eggs, oil and water per the directions on the boxed mix. Flavor was wonderful & my guests begged for the recipe!

Soft, Moist and Gooey Cinnamon Buns
Best cinnamon rolls I've ever made! After the bread machine cycle was done, I formed the rolls, covered with plastic wrap & put in the fridge. Next morning, brought to room temp, put in a 100 degree oven to rise for 20-30 minutes, then baked. Cut brown sugar in the filling by 1/4 cup, used half white whole wheat flour and added 2 tsp. wheat germ & 2 tsp. ground flax to help lower the glycemic index a bit. FABULOUS!!!

Cream of Fresh Asparagus Soup I
I had some asparagus that had partially frozen in my fridge. I almost threw it out, but decided to try this recipe instead. My hubby & kids don't like asparagus, but they tasted the soup & said it was really good. That's a glowing review for them! I followed others suggestions, used stock instead of water, used only 2 cups of milk (which I forgot to warm, but it worked fine) and only added 1 Tbsp. of soy sauce. Turned out great! Served with sourdough grilled cheese & turkey sandwiches and everyone loved it!
