Croissants #2

16th October 2012 | 0 Comments

Now I’ve blogged about croissants before, here but this recipe is sooo much better, lighter fluffier (butter melts out of it less and is soaked up by the layers better), still labor intensive (about 6 hours from start to finish) but entirely worth it. These will come out like Pillsbury Crescent Rolls (you know light […]

Midnight Cake (or Mix-in-the-Pan Cake)

5th June 2012 | 0 Comments

This is an awesome cake, easy and quick to mix and good for people with egg or dairy allergies since there is no butter, milk or egg in it. You can mix this in the pan you plan on baking it in but you get a better mix in a bowl with a whisk. You […]

Cecily’s General Tso’s Chicken

7th February 2011 | Closed

I cobbled this together from a few different recipes from a few different sources and then added a bit more flavor to it. The recipe consists of 2 different parts, frying the chicken and then stir frying it all together. The sauce isn’t very saucy. It’s more like a glaze. If you want more sauce […]

This recipe was inspired by the Olive Garden’s Chicken con Broccoli dish. It’s a delicious dish of chicken breast, pasta and a garlic-parmesan cream sauce and brocoli. It’s by far my favorite dish. Get or make some bread sticks to serve with it (focaccia is very tasty with). This serves about 4 people Ingredients: 2-4 […]

Mrs. Kimball’s Soft Molasses Cookies

This is a recipe we got from my fantastic neighbors growing up. They make a great soft gingerbread-type cookie perfect for holiday cookies. You can either roll out the dough and use cookie cutters or just form balls and roll them in sugar and bake. Makes a ton of dough. It also freezes really well. […]
