Awesome Egg Rolls
Chocolate Trifle
About this Cook
I think this is my favorite and most frequented website. Some of my greatest, most complimented recipes are from here.
My favorite things to cook
desserts, cookies, casseroles, bread and rolls
My favorite family cooking traditions
Sunday dinners of roast and mashed potatoes and gravy. I still remember it like it was yesterday. What a great mom we had to manage such a wonderful meal not only on sundays but pretty much every day. I try to do the same for my family. I love making my husband's favorites on his birthday.
My cooking triumphs
The Cream Puff Cake from this website. I made it for a friend and he loved it so much he wanted me to teach him how to make it for his family. They were impressed. I've had many other successes, but being voted the best cook of my siblings by my sisters was a huge compliment. My sister says she knows any recipe I tell her to try will be great. My best success is when I make a dish my husband says is in the top 5 or top 10 (which of course is alot more than 5 or 10). That's when I consider it a success!
My cooking tragedies
Oh gosh, too many to name. When I tried to rice krispy treats for a guy liked in high school and melted the spatula but still gave him the treats with chunks of melted plastic in them. That was probably one of the first tragedies. Every now and then something isn't very good but major tragedies are rare. A few weeks ago I tried a recipe that was supposed to be Paradise Bakery's Sugar Cookies and I didn't use cake flour- I'm not sure if that was the problem but they were totally nasty. We had to chuck the whole batch.

Chicken Stir-Fry
Loved this! I used mushrooms, snow peas, red and green bell pepper and onions and I thought it was perfect. I did do 1/3 c. Chicken broth and 1/3 c. Soy sauce, since someone said it was too salty with all the soy sauce, but I bet chicken broth has a lot of salt too. Either way, I loved the garlicky sauce and it just tasted yummy to me. My kids complain about their mouths being on fire so I just did a couple of dashes of crushed red time I will do wasn't spicy at all.

Awesome Egg Rolls
I've never made egg fact, I think this was my first time frying anything. They are so good. Just make sure you have mouths to eat them. It was just me and my husband and we about a gut bomb. Maybe we aren't used to so much fried food. They are so good though. I served them with sweet and sour sauce and froze half the batch. I wish I'd tried brushing w/ olive oil and baking because that sounds like it might work out. These really are WAY better than any egg roll I've had a restaurant.

Saltine Toffee Cookies
DO NOT STIR THE BUTTER AND BROWN SUGAR WHILE IT BOILS!!!!!! I have never made toffee before and I didn't know this. It really should say this in the recipe because they don't turn out like toffee skor bars...more like carmel. They are chewy. I was so disappointed that after I read reviews and realized not to stir the butter and brown sugar (I stirred it a lot, afraid it would burn) I decided to make another half batch just to make sure that was the problem. I also baked them for 7-8 minutes compared with my 4-5 on the first batch. THEY ARE INCREDIBLE, AS LONG AS YOU DON'T STIR!!!! I wish I had known. These taste like Skor candy bars. I sprinkled just a tiny bit of finely crushed pecans on top and they are delish!
