So, we'd been talking about it for a while, but last night we finally made it happen--a Chopped-style dinner preparation. Dear BoyFriend and Dear Son went to the grocery store to find me some (not too challenging, please!) Mystery Ingredients. Stymied by a lack of a picnic basket, they stored… MORE

About this Cook
I live with my boyfriend of 10 years, and have a son (11 years old), 2 cats, and a wonderful dog. I enjoy reading and am active on paperbackswap.com; whenever I have a spare minute I have my nose buried in a book, which DBF loves to tease me about. I love to garden and to can the results :)
My favorite things to cook
I love to have people over so I can try new recipes on them; I'm always making new recipes or changing old ones. I enjoy baking sweet stuff the most. Also, I love the way fresh bread makes the house smell. Brunch every other month at my place!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade cakes for every birthday. Also, Halloween themed Jello molds :D My son loves to help in the kitchen, which I think is great. I hope one of his favorite memories is helping in the kitchen with me. We also garden all summer, and he gets to see firsthand where the food is coming from. We harvest, process, and eat the veggies all in one day, and this is one 11-year-old that loves his veggies; I will never need one of those 'hide vegetables in your spaghetti sauce' cookbooks!
My cooking triumphs
Recently finally managed to make an omelet! Pretty sad. Also pretty proud of the Lego cake I made for the 8th birthday.
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make fried apples on the electric stove after moving...charcoal! Need to get used to these burners!

Shannon's Oven Pancake
Excellent! Super easy and yummy. I baked in my convection oven at 400 for a bit over 20 minutes and it was perfect. Once I loosened the sides, it flipped right onto the plate, although unfortunately it left the brown sugar behind. I think I would enjoy this more in a 9 inch pan, I thought it was a little too thick. DBF and DS loved this for supper with some maple sausage patties and fresh cantaloupe. Thanks for the recipe, Shannon!

Lettuce Leaf Tacos
Recipe Group: This was yummy! I was feeling cheap so I subbed ground turkey for the beef. I loved the salt on the tomatoes :) The romaine didn't look so good at the store, so we used green leaf lettuce. Turned out messy but a fun and tasty take on taco night, thanks for sharing the recipe!
