#1. When you need to serve desserts, do you buy them or make them?
I ask Aunt Kathy, Dad, Mom2, or Jeff to make them. I am only good at pies and tarts. I stink at making cakes. :P
#2. When baking do you use butter, margarine or something else?
When baking (i.e.- cookies, cakes, pies) I use real butter. In everyday cooking I use Smart Balance.
#3. What meats or veggies do you cook in the oven?
I like to roast small chickens (3-5 lbs.) with potatoes and carrots and looooots of garlic. :)
#4. Share a recipe for anything that is cooked in an oven.
Here's the newest recipe over in Sarafina's Kitchen:
Comforting Broccoli Casserole
From: Taste of Home, October/Novemeber 2006 issue
Notes: I used all chopped broccoli instead of using any broccoli cuts.
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1 medium onion, chopped
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded swiss cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 package (16 ounces) frozen broccoli cuts, thawed
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped broccoli, thawed
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
In a large bowl, combine the first seven ingredients; fold in broccoli. Transfer to a greased 1-1/2 qt. baking dish. Sprinkle with bread crumbs. Cover and bake at 400 for 30-35 minutes or until heated through. Yield: 8 servings. Editor's Note: Reduced-fat or fat-free mayonnaise is not recommended for this recipe.
