CANDY MADE MY CINNAMON ROLLS

“Dear Jenny, I’m a 75 year old recently retired hotel/restaurant owner.  I learned about cooking from my Great Aunt.  My Great aunt and Uncle had no kids and their house was my favorite place to go, on weekends, from the time that I was 5 years old.  Twice a month, my Uncle Frank would pick  me up on Saturday morning and drop me home on Sunday afternoon.  My Auntie Moe, was the Christmas cook in the family.  They lived in a house they built around the turn of the century and it had a real root cellar in the basement and a storeroom that was bulging with home made jams and preserves and my Uncle even made his own Rootbeer!  It was heaven for me.  Every time I went over, she would ask what we should make, pies, bread, rolls, cakes, meat loaf, roast chicken, and I’d go over the day before a holiday and I would get to help with the roast turkey and cranberry sauce and dinner rolls and always old fashioned Mac and cheese, made in layers and baked in the oven.  One of my favorite things to ask for, was her fabulous cinnamon rolls!  The pain in the butt old fashioned way!

When I saw your recipe, while I was trying your whole wheat bread, reminded me of hers. I tried your easy recipe, but since I too am a pro. cook,  I had to screw with it, of course.  I added a tsp. of vanilla powder, and substituted melted butter, which I added to the heated milk.  I got a kick out of your instruction to cut off 1/2 inch from both ends of the roll before threading the rolls into eight pieces, (do you square your potatoes when you make French fries too)?  I laughed!  I always just make the end pieces a little bigger and smootch them into the pan, with the odd side down.  Auntie Moe always baked hers in muffin tins with a pat of butter and a spoonful of brown sugar and cinnamon in the bottom of each one.

I’d never  made cinnamon rolls any other way, so I decided to try your 8 to a 8” pan system.  I couldn’t resist, however, putting a small pond of butter with a bunch of brown sugar and cinnamon in the bottom of the pans,  I made a double recipe. This is what happened.  They raised so much that they fought for space in the pan and raised way over the top.  Great recipe, but no frosting for me, 5 minutes out of the oven, I flipped them over, upside down, onto plates.  Gotta have that butter, brown sugar, cinnamon soaked gooey rolls.  I never write in to cooks on the internet, but I loved your sense of humor and helpful hints, so I couldn’t  resist. ~ Candy”

– Candy, I enjoyed reading your story and can see why you have a love of cooking. You are so lucky to have had such a great history of food and family. Thank you for sharing.  ❤️  jennyJenny Can Cook Cinnamon Rolls


MATTHEW MADE MY MULTIGRAIN NO KNEAD BREAD

“Jenny, I SO enjoy your website & videos. Thank you! Tried your multigrain in my Dutch cooker today, with 2 changes: 70 g sourdough starter (so I had to let it go overnight), and I sprinkled the top with wheat bran and oat bran. Nothing more satisfying than homemade bread…. — Matthew Lind.”

MARK (from Texas) MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD

“Jenny, I have gone through many stages of bread baking. I’ve tried starters, pooish, and bigas, using exact measurements and elaborate technique. Thank goodness those days are over. I am amazed at this simple No-Knead Bread recipe. Last night I mixed up the recipe only bumping the yeast to scant 1 teaspoon and using cool water for overnight 10 hour rest. This took all of 5 minutes to do. Before daylight I started my hot oven and using my Grandmother’s 100-year-old cast iron Dutch Oven I made this incredible loaf of bread. The sun is up, house smells great, and the bread is done and it is so good! I am very pleased with the taste and texture. Simply amazing! Mark from Deep East Texas.”

So good! Your videos are easy to follow and the recipes online are great while cooking. Thanks for all you do! Onward to the Paczki! Mark from Deep East Texas.”

JANET (from Kentucky) MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD

“Hi Jenny, I really love your site. Today I made your No-Knead bread as a special surprise for my daughter who is coming to dinner tonight. Throughout the pandemic, we have tried to get together either on Zoom or with her at my house every Friday night (and we Zoom with her sister, who lives in NYC). I just felt like I wanted to make her something really special today. Anyway, here it is and I’m so pleased. I have made your whole-wheat sandwich rolls in the past and they are wonderful, too. Thanks so much from Louisville, Kentucky! (Here’s a picture of me and my husband from December. He lives in assisted living because he has dementia, which is why it’s extra special that my daughter spends time with me.)”

My Favorite Recipes

Favorite Recipes Jenny Can CookFor anyone wondering which recipes I make the most, my own go-to favorites, here they are:

No Knead Crusty Rolls: I always have some in the freezer because you can pop them into a 325° F oven for about 10 minutes and they are even more crusty than when first baked.

My Dinner Salad: With a few variations in olive oil dressings, pretty much every meal I make starts with a salad.

Pork Tenderloin Dinner: The pork is lean, takes on marinade really well, and I love roasted veggies.

Oven Chicken Veggie Kabobs: It’s an easy and simple one pan meal with delicious marinated chicken, and I always serve it with Basmati rice. One pan = easy cleanup.

Granola Bars: I make a lot of these granola bars. They can be a quick snack, dessert, or something to take on a hike or trip. There’s one in my purse right now.

Sweet Potato Chocolate Cake: Of all the chocolate cakes I make, this is my favorite And there’s a whole sweet potato in there for some vitamin A, or as we say in Canada, “Vitamin eh?” 🇨🇦

Cracked Wheat No Knead Bread: I love farm breads and this easy no knead bread with extra fiber is the one I make the most. I bake, slice, and freeze.

Sheet Pan Chicken & Vegetables: It’s fast, easy, healthy, low fat, and it all roasts in one pan. It’s delicious. I love this meal!

Bran Muffins: I make a dozen and freeze them for the days I crave traditional, old fashioned, bran muffins, which is almost every day.

Tapioca Pudding: Light as a cloud, this comfort food dessert is a family favorite. My husband swears I always take the bigger serving, but he can’t prove it. 😀

Giant Breakfast Cookies: These are almost a meal in themselves, chewy, delicious, and full of fiber. As soon as I’m down to one, I make more.

One Pan Broccoli Bean Pasta: I buy fresh broccoli every week so I know I can always make this quick and easy last minute dinner with my pantry staples of pasta and canned beans. Any time I can make dinner in one pan, I’m on it! 🥘

How To Make Dutch Baby Pancake

I chose this photo from Ellen in Oregon because as soon as I saw it, I turned on my oven to make my own Dutch Baby Pancake. Her way was exactly the way I serve mine, with a dusting of powdered sugar and lots of fresh fruit. Ellen made it for her husband’s birthday!

Sheet Pan Chicken & Roasted Vegetables

 Sheet Pan Chicken & Roasted VegetablesI love ❤️ love ❤️ love ❤️ this easy and healthy dinner. It’s a lot of vegetables but there is never one bite left when I make my sheet pan chicken and veggies. There are so many health benefits from this colorful variety of vegetables but you can use some of mine and add your own favorites. I used to put the chicken and veggies all on a bare pan but the chicken made a big hard-to-clean mess so now I put the chicken only on parchment paper. (the veggies will brown better on a bare pan).

I just cut a strip of parchment paper 4 by 10-inches long and place it at the far end of the pan.

One Pan Chicken and Vegetables

Stirring the vegetables is key so they won’t stick. Instead of setting my timer for 25 minutes, I set it for 10 minutes, remove the pan to stir all the veggies, put it back and set the timer for another 10 minutes. I stir a second time and set the timer for the last 5 minutes. By cutting the chicken into two pieces, this dinner is ready to serve as soon as it’s done.

Since I’m cooking every day, I find myself looking for easier and faster ways to make a healthy meal and I make this one often because there’s not much to do once it’s in the oven. (more time to decide on what’s for dessert – today it’s peanut butter cookies, those easy ones made without flour 😋) I digressed. Back to my easy, healthy and so delicious sheet pan chicken dinner. Click here for the recipe. – jenny jones

p.s. I am now making my own peanut butter – – game changer! I will share it soon… Stay well,  my fellow cooks!! ❤️

I Made Bran Muffins

Homemade Bran MuffinsI make bran muffins on a “regular” basis. I freeze them and just take out one a day, put a little butter on it, and it’s my evening snack with a glass of warm milk.  The combination of molasses and vanilla gives it that old school bran muffin taste. The older I get, the more I… make bran muffins.🙂 Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

My Simple Lentil Soup

Simple Pureed Lentil SoupSome days, a big bowl of this thick and hearty soup is all I need for dinner, with one of my crusty rolls of course. Lentils are high in protein, low in fat, and have lots of health benefits. I used to have it without pureeing but once I pureed it in the food processor, I never went back. It comes out so thick and creamy, perfect for a cold winter day.

I use unsalted chicken stock but vegetarians can use vegetable stock. I sometimes add some chopped baby spinach in that last couple of minutes if I have it. Either way, lentil soup makes a healthy and satisfying meatless meal. (Don’t forget the crusty roll! 😋) Click here for the recipe. – Jenny Jones

JENNIFER MADE MY NO KNEAD BREAD (with cranberries & walnuts)

“Hi Jenny, I actually remember your show I didn’t watch it because it wasn’t really my type of thing but I definitely remember you hosting that show. Anyway, thank you so much for the bread recipe. I’m making my fourth one tonight! This has become my Sunday night habit oh, kind of a nice way to bring happiness to a Sunday night before work tomorrow! I have noticed a lot of knockoffs here on YouTube and I called out one of the people. I think you should give credit where credit is due, to you.🤗

Anyway with that being said here is a picture of my cranberry walnut loaf. I have also made an herb bread with fresh herbs from my garden, and raisin walnut bread. All of them have been delicious. I can’t believe I used to pay $4-5 for a loaf of this bread , I think I can make it for about $1.20. I think, thinking… Tonight’s loaf be something with herbs, chia seeds and ground flax seeds. But the possibilities are endless. Wait a minute maybe a Chia and flax seed, herb cheese bread oh my! 💗 Thank you, Jennifer.”

– All your ideas sound fantastic. Thank you for sharing. jennyBest Dutch Oven Bread

SUE MADE MY WHOLE WHEAT BREAD

“Hi Jenny. Everyone I share bread with from your recipe  absolutely raves about it. I use the recipe for white bread too, since not all like wheat. I haven’t bought grocery store bread for months now. Thank you for sharing your talent. Sincerely, Sue Ott.”

– Your loaves look wonderful! ? How nice that you’re sharing your baking (and your photos!). Thank you. jennyEasy Whole Wheat Bread

JENNIFER MADE MY NO KNEAD CRUSTY ROLLS

“I made your No Knead Bread a while ago and it was amazing! Today I made my split pea soup from our Thanksgiving ham bone and thought your No Knead Rolls would be perfect. THEY WERE!!!!  Thank you for all you share. I love watching your videos. You make cooking look so easy. My daughter is hounding me to write my recipes down because I cook from scratch most of the time and I don’t even think of it while I am cooking. Most of what I cook is based on how I feel at the time I am cooking.”

– Thank you for your photo. I agree with your daughter – maybe she can watch and make notes? Handing down recipes is a valuable tradition. jennyEasy Crusty Rolls

JACKIE & her 7-year old daughter (from North Carolina) MADE MY BREADSTICKS

“Thanks Jenny!  What a  happy surprise to see your face after all these years.  My 7 yr old loves breadsticks and after waiting for yeast, homeschooling to calm down, and her finger sprain from playing with her brother, we finally got to make them. I could tell by your video you know what you are doing. They are fab. Sesame and also everything bagel seed mix.  Yours, Jackie Hayes in Charlotte, NC.”

– They look amazing! Please tell your daughter she did an awesome job and to keep cooking! It’s really fun. jennyHomemade Breadsticks

The crust, the inside , just everything about it.I made it yesterday and I’m making another one today for a friend.”

VIORICA (from Finland) MADE MY CHOCOLATE CUPCAKES

“Dear Jenny, thank you so much for your great  and well explained recipes. They always make my cooking time more and more enjoyable. My name is Viorica Bucur and  I live in Finland.  I tried many of your recipes and they work very well.  Furthermore I posted some of  my culinary creations  inspired from your recipes on my instagram account: viorica4397. I would like to confess to you that from all your recipes that I’ve done  till now  your  Easy healthier chocolate cupcakes I’ve made at least 20 times. In my opinion it’s a quite forgiving recipe because I  successfully add each time in it different other ingredients  such as orange extract or chocolate ganache and they are still so tasty.

In order to frost my cupcakes I used  your chocolate frosting recipe with sourcream (in my first pic), 2-minute chocolate frosting (in the second pic),  but also your 2-minute vanilla frosting  (in my third pic) in which I also  add some colour. I like also to add to frosting different berries which I pick up with my family from our forest.
Thank you again for your wonderful recipes!!! Warm hugs from cold Finland. Best regards, Viorica Bucur.”
– Thank you for these beautiful cupcakes. I visited Helsinki a few years ago on a vacation cruise – it was a wonderful experience! jennyChocolatecupcakes_raspberryChocolate_strawberry cupcakeschocolate cupcakes_redcurrants

– I am SO excited to see my bread in South Africa! And such a stunning loaf. Thank you! jennyBest No Knead Bread

Quick & Easy Pumpkin Bars

Quick & Easy Pumpkin BarsTry to eat just one of these light and delicious bars! They seem to melt in your mouth. This is a quick recipe that uses less sugar than most and even less butter and cream cheese in the frosting. There’s only one ounce of cream cheese and one tablespoon of butter in the frosting.

I can never seem to get the top smooth but it doesn’t matter since they’re frosted anyway. Plus, you can always frost them upside down. My oil of choice for baking is avocado oil but they’re not all the same. Look for one that is light colored and flavorless. (see my brand under “Products I Use”). I line my pan with foil for easy cleanup and I frost these bars right in the pan.

Some days I crave pumpkin pie but don’t want to work that hard. These fragrant bars are the next best thing. (My husband calls them pumpkin brownies – sounds like a ploy for me to put in some chocolate chips ? – maybe next time.)  Click here for the recipe  – Jenny Jones
