About this Cook
I enjoy knitting, cross stitch, scuba diving, hiking, and cooking.
My favorite things to cook
All types of breakfast foods. I also enjoy baking and cooking new recipes when I have time.
My favorite family cooking traditions
We always have a big breakfast on the weekends. We also have big holiday meals.
My cooking triumphs
I am good at throwing things together to make a meal. My husband frequently asks where the recipe came from and I tell him I just threw it together. I get my inspiration from several recipes and pick my favorite parts of each to come up with a new "specialized" recipe that suits my family.
My cooking tragedies
When I was in elementary school I made cookies and I think I swapped salt for the sugar. You can imagine how yummy those turned out. I also tried to make split pea soup and it cooked to long and turned to mush. None of us could choke it down.

Parmesan Garlic Orzo
Yuck, this was way too bland for my family. I'm not even sure what I would have done to it to make it taste better.

No Bake Cookies V
Classic no bake recipe. I prefer smooth peanut butter so I used that and regular oatmeal because it's what we had. They set up in about 20 minutes. The oatmeal was a little hard to chew the first day but softened up quite a bit the second day. If you have a large family you might want to double the recipe, the ones I made last night are almost gone!

Butter Crescents
These are a great homemade alternative to store bought crescent rolls! I have used them to wrap hot dogs, in various Pampered Chef recipes that call for crescent rolls, and to wrap up filling for breakfast pockets for my kids. The dough is quick and easy to mix up in a KitchenAid and is so easy to work with. I toss it all into the mixing bowl using hot water and milk(which melts the butter), and 2 1/4 teaspoons of yeast rather than a packet and I have never had an issue with the dough rising. However, I do think it needs a tad more salt. I use unsalted butter so I up the salt to 1 1/2 teaspoons, making it about the same as the ratio of salt I use when making bread dough. If you have been looking for a homemade version of crescent rolls to use in recipes give this one a try.
