About this Cook
I'm a Stay At Home Mom, to my baby boy, Max, born in October 2005. I've been married for just over two years to my husband, a Graphic Designer named Duncan. I also go to school part time, to become a photographer. I'm interested in cooking, reading, and studying various religions.
My favorite things to cook
I love food! I like simple to prepare things, that have complex flavors. I like down home comfort food and more gourmet cuisine.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom makes the best pies! Especially meringues! I wish I could make pie crust like her, but I am horrible with dough! If it has to be rolled, I promise I can't do it. So Pillsbury pre-made, that you unroll, is where its at for me!
My cooking triumphs
None yet! Lol!
My cooking tragedies
I cannot make a hamburger to save my life! I cannot ever seem to get the eight consistency to the meat, and then I never get them to cook right. Gah!

French Onion Soup V
It was delicious! BUT, needs stronger broth. I only had cubes, so I used five cups of water and five cubes...I'll use same water next time, but use about 7 cubes. also added about 1/4 cup of worcestershire sauce to give a little more zip. I've never used wine in a recipe and normally don't like soups and sauces with wine, but this was excellent. I used just cooking wine and now I think I know why they should tell you to use good wine, because while it was still good, I think it would be sooo much better with a reall y dry decent white wine. it's a keeper!!

I knocked off one star, only because I do think it will need some of the adjustments that others suggested...such as more honey and egg and only 30 minutes of cook time, instead of 40. Still, for my first from scratch bread making experience, it was WONDERFUL! Will use this recipe, altered, from now on! Thanks for the recipe!!!
