I wanted try my hand Focaccia and went to work on that the other week.
I didn’t even safe the recipe that I used, because it came out so dense and chewy.
I’m pretty sure it was cook-error not the recipe. I know better when it comes to making bread, the humidity in your home plays a big part on the water to flour ratio. I know that I simply used too much flour.
Well, there’s always next time.
Cook or bake, for your family!

Okay, so you have this great idea for a dish.
You gather all of your ingredients, you think that this will be fabulous and everyone will love it.
AND DANG IT!
Stuff happens, right? I know this has happened to you at least once?
I kept seeing this idea on Pinterest for Mini Corn Dogs. Sounds outstanding.
I was invited to another gathering of the Neighborhood Gal Pal’s, all the time being mindful of our Social Distancing and meeting on the patio, for cards and cocktails. MMM! This should be a home run.
Here we go …
Mix, bake, cool, check …
I used a Mini Cupcake pan with JUMBO Hot Dog pieces,
not good! I couldn’t get more than 5 of the dozen and a half Mini Corn Dogs out of the pan without them falling apart!
Plan B, ALWAYS have a plan B!
Fortunately I had a bag of frozen Pigs In Blankets; some lovely dipping sauces of Ketchup, Hickory Farms Sweet Hot Mustard as well as their Cranberry Mustard. This is already a Tried & True hit with the Gals, so there ya go …
No really, stuff happens in the kitchen sometimes, you just can’t help it! Ya gotta just roll with it and go with Plan B, always have a back plan.
The other morning I needed to get myself out the door to meet some gal-pals and wanted to put together an easy Brunch for DH. I went with Costco Croissant Breakfast Sandwiches, simple enough. I asked DH if he would like to have the Croissants toasted, “Sure”.
I set them ON FIRE!
I’m still not use to this Gas Range and the Broiler, OH WELL. DH did finally get something to eat.
I love anything Coconut, so I ordered a small bottle of Coconut Flavoring from King Arthur Flour, along with a new Bundt® Pan.
I found this recipe, “The Best Coconut Pound Cake”, on a social media site and figured I’d give it a go.
It sure smelled good and looked okay I guess.
I made the icing and toasted some Shredded Coconut to go on top.
I can’t say exactly why we didn’t care for this cake, we just didn’t. One bite and unfortunately, it got chucked into the garbage can… it wasn’t even good enough to share with the next door neighbors, I didn’t want to subject them to this cake.
I’m not going to post the recipe nor the author of it, but I will say that this is the second recipe that I’ve tried of hers and both were FAILS!
