My High School Freshman Picture
About this Cook
I am of German decent and married to a polish man. We have 4 children and 8 grandchildren. We live on a small farm in Texas. We basically like simple things. I enjoy cooking and make most of my meals from scratch. I enjoy crocheting and teaching religion.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are prairie bread, omelets, pancakes, biscuits, Mexican food and German food. We love to BBQ brisket & chickens and country style pork ribs. Lately because of health, we are cooking low fat, high fiber meals. It has been an experience. has help tremendously.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to make Chicken & Dumplings, Never could make dumplings like MOM but my family loves the ones I make. My husband's MOM would make chicken and gravy served over cornbread. Christmas cookies like chocolate chip, oatmeal, and peanut butter are baked every year and given to all my children and friends.
My cooking triumphs
My husband had a stroke and couldn't BBQ any more. So I learned how to cook a brisket as well as he did. Also learned how to chop the wood and make the fire. We now have a smoker and I can handle putting little wood chips in ever so often. BBQ is so much better. I can cook most any thing I want in it, meats that is.
My cooking tragedies
I can't recall any in a long time. My granddaughter and I just took a glass pan of brownies out of the oven and set it on top of the range over an electric burn we. When we we we ready to plate it we picked it up and it exploded. Guess what the burner had been left on and we were not aware of it. Lesson learned. Check burners before you set anything on it. This was my first experience with an electric range. I have used gas in the past. 50 years. Needless to say we had to start all over with the brownies. Lesson learned.

Cinnamon-Raisin Yogurt Biscuits
I tried it and it was very good. I didn't use the icing and forgot to put the cinnamon sugar on before I baked them, but when done I brushed the tops with melted butter and sprinkled the cinnamon sugar on. Turned out real well. Didn't need frosting. My husband loved them.

100 Percent Whole Wheat Bread
Made it yesterday in my bread machine. I cut flour, vital gluten, honey and salt in half. I use olive oil since I had no coconut oil, the amount called for. I doubled up on the flax meal since I had not flax seeds. I did not use sunflower seeds since I didn't have them either. I used 1 1/2 cup of water. The rest of the ingredients I used as indicated. I placed the ingredients in my bread machine in the order called for my machine, and mixed on dough cycle. Remove and rolled out and cut into 3" rounds as I usually do for my bread rolls. Let rise for 1 hour and baked at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. My husband likes his bread in these small rolls. They were wonderful. The taste was very good. Texture was soft, thanks to the gluten and added water. I will make it again since is it a very healthy bread. Sorry about all the adjustments but I can't knead dough anymore; my hands are too weak. Thanks for the invention of the bread machine we enjoy fresh bread every week.
