Improvised Cooking


 Like most Americans, I cook using prepared mixes, frozen food, and such. Sometimes I am teased for not using fresh ingredients to cook for myself and others. However, you can really shine by putting your own unique twist on what you make. For example, I like to add ground cinnamon into sugar cookie mix that makes them taste even more delicious. Not only that, but I also like to hand-mold different cookie doughs together so that the flavors complement each other. You can combine chocolate and peanut butter cookie dough together to make cookies that taste like a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Last Christmas, I combined my cinnamon-sugar cookie dough with gingerbread cookie dough in sort of a yin-yang theme - yummy! On my birthday coming up, I'm going to chop up some Andes mint chocolate candies and put them into some yellow cake batter and make cupcakes. We'll see how that turns out but I'm confident that it will be just fantastic.

Thanks. The candies sank to the bottom, though, so I can't say it was a total success. But that's how we learn.

Cinnamon in the mix? Sounds great! Good hub, voted up and useful.
