I am a notoriously bad cook. I have served my family under-cooked chicken, with love and salmonella. I recently made a fool-proof banana bread recipe. And it was awful.
This year, I decided I was going to help with Thanksgiving and try cooking again. I made the Gulliver’s corn (my great-grandma’s recipe), cheddar chive mashed potatoes, a crockpot apple crumble and a low-fat pumpkin roll.
Everything turned out pretty amazing, actually. My mom – who’s a fantastic, gourmet-style cook (and a career woman, mom, girlfriend and, basically, Wonderwoman) – supervised the whole show.
I was inspired enough to make sea-salt caramels with Isaiah the next day. Those turned out pretty awesome as well. I suppose I can’t say I don’t cook anymore. I can’t decide if I’m happy or annoyed by that.
Anyway – here’s the recipes and I’ll share some photos from our Thanksgiving really soon:
- Slow Cooker Apple Crumble by How Sweet Eats
- Lightened Up Pumpkin Roll by Skinny Taste – I have to tell you, this was a family favorite. It’s been institutionalized as a new tradition and it was the dessert that went the quickest. It was definitely my favorite.
- Homemade Sea Salt Caramels by Judicial Peach (Another favorite
Get to cookin’! And share some recipes with us, damnit.
