About this Cook
Hi! I'm a homemaker in north Texas and come to all recipes quite often for dinner and dessert inspiration. Occasionally I like to experiment with recipes to make them more to my taste, or just to see what will happen when I 'shake things up' a bit. Sometimes I find success, other times I've created a new running joke in the! :)
My favorite things to cook
Look, I have to be honest here. I cook a lot out of necessity. While I enjoy making dishes, such as BBQ chicken, curried salmon and rice, apple pie and ice cream (NOT on the same day...please), I'm doing it more to feed myself and my family, because I'd rather be spending time in the garden, playing on the internet, etc than playing with a raw chicken. You know what I mean?

Apple Bread
This recipe is lacking some of the flavorings used in classic apple bread. My mom's recipe, which is definitely not bland, goes back to the 60's and it's exactly the same as above in ingredients and measurements, but it *also* calls for two (2) tsp. vanilla extract and 1 tsp. ground allspice (in addition to the 1 tsp. cinnamon). Like Jillian's version, it also bakes at 350 for 1 hour. You may cut the oil back to 3/4 cup and it still is plenty moist. I don't cut the recipe in half because this cake freezes well and two loaves means one can be frozen and saved for another day. Why bake twice?

Good Old Fashioned Pancakes
I'm glad for these reviews because I prefer buttermilk pancakes to pancakes that smell and taste sweet. Buttermilk keeps the pancake from becoming cloyingly sweet when toppings are added. This is just my family's preference tho! Anyhow, I made the recipe using 1 1/3 cup of 'homemade' buttermilk instead of milk and reduced the salt to 1/2 tsp because I used salted butter. (homemade buttermilk = 1tbs + 1/4 tsp white vinegar in a 2c glass measuring cup, then fill with milk to the 1 1/3 line. Combine and let set for 10 minutes before using.) They turned out beautiful!! Very fluffy, smooth, soft and thick enough to flip easily with a fat spatula w/out crinkling or tearing.

Roasted Rack of Lamb
Fabulous recipe! It's very simple to put together and the results were excellent even though we used dried rosemary and granulated garlic. My husband has eaten a lot of lamb and he raved that this was the best he's ever had! For a 1.40 lb, 7-rib rack, searing + 17 minutes in the oven produced a medium-RARE roast (some deeper glossy red in the center). I strongly recommend a digital instant-read thermometer when making this recipe Also, if not working with an oven-proof skillet, have your roaster pre-heated in the oven for immediate transfer.
