Krumkake (cookies)


4 eggs 
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour 
1 cup of sugar 
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted (this is one stick) 
2 Tablespoons corn starch
1/2 Teaspoon vanilla extract 
1/2 Teaspoon cardamom seed 

I break open the eggs into a large bowl and add the sugar.  Whisk until it is blended.  Add the cooled butter or margarine, cardamom seed and vanilla.  I add extra vanilla and sometimes almond extract as well.  I seem to like a lot of flavor but if you don't then just stick to the recipe as will be delicious!!

Sift the flour and corn starch into the mixture and whisk for about 2 minutes to get it mixed to a dough like consistency.  I use 1 large tablespoon and place about a 1 inch ball on each side of the Krumkake machine grill.  It usually takes about 1 1/2 minutes to cook.

Take the flattened cookie off the grill and roll it with your Krumkake roller to make cone shaped cookies or you can leave flat.  Taste great and beautiful design on each cookie or cone!

Children as well as Adults love the cones with a few marshmallows in the bottom topped with ice cream!  These can be used as homemade ice cream cones!!!  Perfect for treats or parties!

Cooking at Home During Quarantine

I like cooking, but I can't wait to be able to go out, sit at a table in a restaurant, order, eat, and enjoy family and friends. The only thing I won't like is the bill, but it will be so worth it. During this quarantine, if you have the funds and can help out your favorite local eateries, do so. They are struggling and take-out orders can help keep them in business.

Tex-Mex Chicken Burrito Bowl

Tex-Mex Chicken Burrito Bowl Okay, I like to try different things, so I buy lots of food magazines for ideas! A very recent one this year 2023, Cooking Light magazine, had an assortment of different "power bowls" to make. I decided to try this one with chicken, but you can substitute any type of meat you would like in it, i.e. shredded beef, ground beef, and if you are daring, no meat substitutes! Well, that last one is not for me!  Below is the actual recipe I used. If you don't subscribe to Cooking Light, you are missing some great ideas of recipes for you and/or your family. When I saw this edition, I knew it was a game changer for me. I can take the recipe and modify it for the fussy eaters in my family and make it their own.  First, I made it "almost" like the recipe calls for to see what the results would be from everyone. My conclusion was, I loved it just the way it was, but not so with the others. So below is my suggestion on what to do so you don't
