Welcome home! Winter is here and Christmas is quickly approaching! Join me in my quest to share my love of the lost art of cooking and preserving food history, posting recipes gleaned from years of teaching and experimenting on family and friends. My sense of humor may be a bit skewed, but no one should fear the kitchen! Take up your spatulas and frying pans! En gard! Bitte, all are welcome at my table.

Working on Making Christmas Eats
Well now (or in Plaudeutsch nah yoh) I have made dough for my zweiback and even though I made a dreadful error after letting the sponge rise (forgot to add the fat and extra warm milk) - yes, even well seasoned bakers do that! I think it will be ok. The Portzelky dough is also rising and I am making meat pie as I type this. Well, not literally since I am waiting for the Crisco to chill for a bit. It is a hectic, happy day in the Little Cook's Kitchen: my favorite kind of day, actually having the luxury of time during this hectic work period. More baking photos to follow. I wish you good baking and have fun experimenting with new and family favorite recipes to make them your own! (just don't forget ingredients).
