Lovely, lovely bread.
About this Cook
Home-grown Alaskan who enjoys cooking, but loves baking!
My favorite things to cook
I love baking cookies, muffins, breads... But as far as real foods go, I like to make grilled salmon, stir-fry veggies, throw-everything-in soups, and hearty salads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Malaysian Chicken Curry
My cooking triumphs
Managing my own little cafe overlooking Bishop's Beach in Homer. I managed, cooked, baked, served, cleaned, etc. Our menu included Malaysian Chicken Curry, Tofu Vegetable Curry, Wheat Bread (served in a flower pot), Bagel Sandwiches, Muffins, Cookies, Brownies, Ice Cream, Bubble Tea, and Espresso Drinks.
My cooking tragedies
Sure I've burnt plenty of things and mixed clashing flavors, but seems like there's always something you can do to make it at least semi-decent.

Lemon Poppy Seed Loaf
Really yummy, swapped a bit of butter out for more yogurt (as per recommended). It was a bit on the dry side, but still good. I poured a lemon juice + powdered sugar glaze over the top after the bake for added sweetness.

Chewy Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies
Delish! I substituted muesli for oats (because I was out of oats), and they still turned out quite tasty! The batter spread out a bit in the tray, so more flour might help..?

Lemon Cupcakes
Yummie cupcakes. If you can ignore the copious amounts of butter/sugar, the taste is delicious. I added a bit too much extra lemon, and it was a bit tangier than I was hoping for, but still delicious. Frosting was nice, but not necessary because the cake was flavorful enough!
