Missscripture's Cooking And Baking Thread


Posted

Since I have taken to being housewife-y, I have really loved getting to bake and try new recipes. Today, I made pita bread for the 2nd time. It didn't puff at ALL this time (some did, some didn't last time). But I think I may have inadvertently let it rise WAY too much before I rolled it out. But it was still tasty. :eat:

Tomorrow, I am going to try making hummus to put on the leftover pitas.

I really like this cookbook: [url="http://www.amazon.com/Betty-Crocker-Cookbook-Everything-Today/dp/0764568779/ref=sr_1_cc_2?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1322708177&sr=1-2-catcorr"]http://www.amazon.com/Betty-Crocker-Cookbook-Everything-Today/dp/0764568779/ref=sr_1_cc_2?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1322708177&sr=1-2-catcorr[/url]
My aunt and uncle gave it to us as a wedding gift. And it's got a good mix of easy and more difficult recipes, plus it has a lot of explanations in there on how to make things. Some recipes are meh, but some are really, really good. Oh, and some are pathetically easy...like, I think they actually have a recipe for grilled coagulated milk. :rolleyes: And it is seriously bread and coagulated milk. Not anything fancy.

Thank you! I will have to cut it down to make it a bit smaller, since it's only me and the husband, right now. :hehe2: But I will give this a try the next time, since that's twice that this other recipe hasn't turned out quite right. :)

I'm going to try my Granny's donut recipe... wish me luck, I've only observed my mom making it and the last time I was home for that was when I was in highschool... over 10 years ago. lol If they turn out properly, though, it's going to be amazing.

This sounds soooo yummy! I've wanted to try a few donut recipes, but have always decided against it, since me and Roamin don't need a bunch of donuts around tempting us. :hehe2:

I'm going to mail some to my siblings if they turn out well. If they don't.... try, try again. At least flour is pretty cheap. :hehe:

It's (almost) always fun to eat any mistakes. :) My mom used to make fried donut holes with nutmeg & rolled in cinnamon sugar. :eat: Yum! Years ago I made them & they turned out really well.

I just made crackers that are similar to wheat thins. They're tasty, but I didn't roll them thin enough, although Idk how to roll them any thinner without breaking the rolling pin!

I also made the hummus, but it tastes like there is something missing...

I have that problem every time I try making hummus so I just go back to buying it. :blush:

Here is something else you might like. It is my base cookie recipe. I use this as the base of all my cookies.

[size=3][font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif][color=#333333]Here is my Cookie Base:[/color][/font][/size]
[size=3][font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif][color=#333333]1 Cup Melted Butter[/color][/font][/size]
[size=3][font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif][color=#333333]2 Teaspoons Baking Soda[/color][/font][/size]
[size=3][font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif][color=#333333]1 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract[/color][/font][/size]
[size=3][font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif][color=#333333]2 Cups Sugar (honey or brown sugar can be substituted for a different colour or consistency)[/color][/font][/size]
[size=3][font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif][color=#333333]1/4 Cup Molasses (for extra colour) (Optional)[/color][/font][/size]
[size=3][font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif][color=#333333]2 Eggs[/color][/font][/size]
[size=3][font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif][color=#333333]2 cups flour[/color][/font][/size]
[size=3][font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif][color=#333333]Then, if I am making Chocolate Chip cookies, I add 2 cups of chocolate chips; if I am making Peanut Butter cookies I add 2 cups of Peanut Butter; If I am making oatmeal cookies, I add 2 cups of oatmeal and an extra half cup of butter. If I am making Ginger Snaps, I add an extra cup of flour and 1/4 cup of ginger. I think you get the picture from there! I won't put in the molasses if I will ruin the look of the cookie, so no molasses with Peanut Butter, Oatmeal or Coconut Cookies, for example.[/color][/font][/size]
[size=3][font=tahoma, geneva, sans-serif][color=#333333]yield: 4 dozen cookies[/color][/font][/size]
