Quarantine Cooking Photos (May 4-6)

The whole world is home and cooking and I love seeing photos of my recipes from all over the world, so please say where you’re from – include yourself in the photo too! (I post these manually so you won’t see it right away.) Use this link to send your photo: YourPhotos@JennyCanCook.com

TINA (from Texas) MADE MY CHOCOLATE CAKE

“Hello Jenny! My husband and I are both physicians.  He is on the front lines daily in the hospital while I’m seeing my patients via telemedicine. The one main lesson that this COVID19 crisis has taught me is that teachers are WAY underpaid! They all should be paid at least 10 times more for tolerating…I mean teaching our kids.  I’ve been trying to juggle seeing my patients, oversee distance learning for my kids, and manage my household chores – my escape has been trying your recipes in my kitchen (which is my happy place).  I have made so many and they all turn out so well!  I’m baking my way through this darn pandemic!

Anyhow, I decided to surprise my newly pregnant baby sister and her husband on her 33rd birthday with a “fancy” decorated version of your chocolate cake with your 2 minute frosting.This made her so happy on her birthday!!!  I just topped the cake with a few homemade chocolate covered strawberries and drizzled dark and white chocolate sculptures (I’m not sure what to call them).  Look how beautiful it came out!  I just love you and your recipes!!!  Thank you for being you and for sharing your love of healthier cooking with us! Hugs from Texas, – Tina Dieber.”

~ Well that’s the best my cake has ever looked! Thank you for these lovely photos, my best birthday wishes to your sister, and most importantly, my admiration to you both for doing good in the world. ❤️ – jenny Jenny Can Cook Chocolate CakeEasiest Chocolate Cake Ever

DAVID (from Canada) MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD

“Hi Jenny. Made your quick no- knead bread & it turned out great. The only thing was the bottom crust was a little hard to slice through. Maybe when I remove the lid to brown the top i should reduce temp a little. Thanks, David D ~ from Toronto, Ontario, Canada.”

~ Reducing the temperature  when the lid comes off is a good idea or you could also try removing the loaf from the pan after 30 minutes and placing it directly on the oven rack but put the parchment paper,  folded over for more thickness, under it. Good luck! – jenny (also from Ontario, Canada 🇨🇦)Easy Dutch Oven Bread

BARB (from Canada) MADE MY SIMPLE WHITE BREAD

“Jenny, I couldn’t be more pleased with how this bread turned out.  Just look at that beautiful loaf! The taste and texture are wonderful too.  It came together very quickly using the Kitchenaid stand mixer. Thank you for sharing your recipes and techniques. I really appreciate knowing I can try a new recipe with confidence and every anticipation of success after watching your video demonstrations.  And my husband appreciates what’s coming out of my oven nowadays!  Thank you, Jenny. ~ Barb from Ontario, Canada.”

~ I’m so glad to hear it and this bread looks picture perfect. Thank you very much. – jenny (also from Ontario, Canada 🇨🇦)Best Recipe Homemade White Bread

BUNNY (from Chicago) MADE MY TORTILLAS

“Hi Jenny, We decided to make a Mexican style meal for Cinco de Mayo.  But we didn’t have tortillas for tacos, and didn’t want to go out to the store.  Then, I remembered your video for homemade tortillas.  I had never made tortillas before, but they were quick and easy, just like the ones on your website.  Thank you for another great recipe that is sure to become a regular in our kitchen.  Here’s the results. ~ Bunny (in Chicago).”
