A quick and easy pizza recipe. It cooks in less than 10 minutes!
Here is an easy to make meal that takes less than 10 minutes to prep for. Since it cooks in the slow cooker, all you need to do is simply prep your meat, turn your slow cooker on and go. What could be better than that?
Use more brown sugar. That’s it. Brown sugar will make your cookie a little more crumbly after it bakes. For example, take my recipe for chocolate chip cookies here. It calls for only ½ cup of granulated white sugar, compared to, 2 cups of brown sugar. That is a full 4 to 1 ratio of brown sugar to white. The result is a softer, more granular cookie. It breaks apart easily and readily soaks up milk upon dunking it. Just be careful, it might just fall in! Now that is what I call a soft cookie!
Try experimenting with some of your existing cookie recipes. If your recipe calls for 3/4 cup of sugar, try 1/4 cup brown sugar to 1/2 cup white. If your recipe calls for 1 cup, try half white sugar and half brown sugar. You can have a lot of fun trying out different combinations. Put your own spin on your favorite recipes. Most importantly, don’t be afraid to fail. I went through at least a half dozen different recipes before I found the one that I liked best. If all else fails, throw your failed cookies in some ice cream and call it a day.

When I was younger, I used to work at a Red Robin Restaurant. They had the most delicious Tortilla Soup I had ever tasted up to that point. Here is my own version of that tortilla soup that I used to love so much, but with a few additions that I believe make this even better than Red Robbin’s. This soup is so good, you’ll want to eat it all winter long.
Did you know, that when a recipe states “butter” as an ingredient, it really means “unsalted butter.” WHY was this not explained to me earlier!? Bakers just assume that everyone knows this. You could be sabotaging your baking and not even know it!
So what is the deal? Should you use salted or unsalted butter? Here is an easy guide to understanding the pros and cons of each.
Pros: tastes yummy, excellent for buttering savory items like warm corn on the cob and it is easy to find in the grocery store.
Cons: Every company is different and there is no “standard” amount of salt per stick of butter. So you don’t know exactly how much salt is in the butter, which makes it hard to calculate the impact of the salt in a given recipe.
Pros: Most recipes are written with unsalted butter in mind and ingredients reflect this. So if your recipe requires salt and you are using salted butter, then you are already starting with too much salt. The pro to this is that it is much easier to control the amount of salt in your recipe if you start off by using unsalted butter and just add salt from there.
Cons: There are times when salted butter simply tastes better. For instance, when I make Chicken Marsala, I notice a distinct difference in the flavor of my sauce when I use unsalted butter instead of salted butter. In this case, I prefer using salted butter.
A general rule of thumb is to decrease the amount of salt your recipe calls for by 1/4 teaspoon for every 1/2 cup (that’s one stick) of butter. Of course, my recommendation is to use unsalted butter whenever possible, but at least now you have a handy guide to help you be the best baker you can be.
