Safe Travels, My Little Spatulas

Jenny Can Cook SpatulasCooking is fun. Moving is not. We’ve been looking for a long time and I finally found a dream kitchen that I want to cook in so we’re getting ready to move. I don’t remember the rest of the house but it had a bunch of rooms so I’m sure it’s going to be good. 😀  I’m excited about my new kitchen but it will take time to set things up just right so you won’t see any new recipes for a while. I’ll still be checking in every day as usual, posting your photos and answering questions when I can.

I’ve learned a few things while packing to move:

  1. I don’t wear belts any more.
  2. I thought I was doing a better job of dusting.
  3. There may be a family of squirrels living in our garage.
  4. A man can be emotionally attached to a broken vacuum hose.
  5. Moving is a good way to test your marriage. ❤️

KEITH MADE MY FALL-OFF-THE-BONE RIBS

“Just had to say thank you for the Recipe! Writing this before I even finish dinner! Since I was using 3 lbs of pork ribs already cut into 2 inch pieces.  Had to Adjust to just 1.5 hrs of bake time and also let the rub marinate overnight.”
They look amazing! And good for you for adding that healthy broccoli. 🥦 –  jennyJenny Can Cook Ribs

JULIE MADE MY CINNAMON ROLLS

“Cinnamon Rolls Fresh From Oven. Below is the Fiesta Ware casserole dish I bake (your recipe) cinnamon rolls in. I have used this pan so much over the years for so many different cooking applications.  I find that lining it with aluminum foil keeps it new looking, plus, it helps find the right temperature for rising and baking the cinnamon rolls.  As you can see the pan is about 2 inches in depth and the cinnamon rolls nearly reach the top of rim—sometimes, even  more so.  It’s nice to serve in after baking, too.”
Thank you for your photo and for the tip about the baking dish you use. –  jennyHealthier Cinnamon Rolls

DICK MADE MY WHITE BREAD

“WOW! I added diced fresh jalapeños 1/2 cup and didn’t change anything else. Loved it!”
Spicy jalapeños – now that sounds good! Thank you for your photo. –  jennyBest White Bread Recipe

BOGHOS MADE MY SIMPLE WHOLE WHEAT BREAD

“I’ve baked your No Knead Bread several times with success and loved it. So today I tried your Simple whole wheat Bread. I doubled the recipe by exactly doubling your ingredients. I did add 6 teaspoons of wheat gluten and brushed the tops with milk before baking to get a softer crust. Fantastic. Thank you for your amazing recipes and btw, I love your sense of humour in both videos. The Apology and The Egg. Lol.”
