Abbreviated Creations

Here are some photos and short descriptions of my latest culinary creations of note:

Homemade Strawberry Jam:

I did not follow a recipe, which is very characteristic of my cooking… Lesson learned? Follow a recipe. Made-up strawberry jam turned out more like made-up strawberry disgustingness. I won’t even grace it with pictures because it just looked like pink goo.


Pronounced "puteetza," a traditional nut roll that my husband’s ancestors prepare for Christmas and special occasions…and now I carry on the tradition as well.

Homemade Apple Pie:

…with traditional lattice-top crust, of course.

Feast of Seasonal Fall Foods:

Sweet, cinnamon pork chops, mashed sweet potatoes, green beans, and corn. Mmmm! This is one of the more colorful meals I have cooked.
