Cinnamon Raisin Bread I
About this Cook
Me and my boys love to go out to eat. Since there's five of us, that's just not too practical. So, to compensate, I like to try lots of new recipes that I think my family will enjoy. This site is a wonderful resource. Instead of begging to go to this or that restaurant, my kids now ask me to make something, usually from Allrecipes!
My favorite things to cook
I recently learned to make a pasta dish that's just about identical to my favorite thing to order at Macaroni Grill. We all dig into that like there's no tomorrow! Homemade pizza, using Jay's Signature Pizza Crust, is on the menu a lot, so, really anything my family likes are my favorite things to cook.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Growing up, my mom used to make cinnamon rolls, especially for Christmas morning. She also made Molasses Crinkles and peanut brittle pretty much every year. In keeping with that tradition, I now make her rolls and cookies but haven't stepped up to the candy.
My cooking triumphs
After many flops, my pie crust is pretty darn near perfect. Debbie's Cherry Pie is expected at Christmas gatherings without fail!
My cooking tragedies
Scraping failed attempts at pie crust into the trash are the tragedies that I remember best. There was also the time I volunteered to bring cinnamon rolls to a teacher appreciation breakfast: little rocks with icing. Ugh!

Red, White and Blue Strawberry Shortcake
I baked the cake as directed, allowed to cool, poked holes with shish kebab skewer, and spread top with strawberry glaze: 2/3 c strawberry jelly & 1 t lemon juice, stirred together in saucepan over low heat till jelly dissolves. Then cover glaze with whipped topping & fruit.

Chicken With Mushrooms
As written, this recipe could be prepared to serve as a "french dip" type sandwich, or maybe with a savory rice. If you want to serve with noodles, however, add the canned mushroom soup or make a cup of white sauce to stir into the broth.

Apple Butter Bars
Ewww...not good. Save your apple butter for toast, biscuits or scones. There are too many other great desserts out there to bother with these!
