Great baking cookie and Julie.  I do remember those Coffee Scroll biscuits, goodness knows how long ago that was though.  Your slice looks delicious Julie.

That slice looks and sounds nice Julie.
The  man who said it can't be done should not interupt the woman doing it.

I made another batch of biscuits from Becís Kitchen. They are very nice but not as delicious as the Coffee Cinnamon scroll ones.

I think you would make cookies and biscuits more than any one else cookie, no wonder you chose that for your forum name.

I used boneless, skinless thighs.

Made this earlier for the freezer, Creamed Leeks with garlic and cream cheese https://www.ditchthecarbs.com/leeks-garlic-cream-cheese/
I used half cream cheese and half sour cream and because the carbs are higher than I need them to be I just filled small silicon cupcake holders to decrease the carb serve. I havenít worked out how I will use them yet.

Judy, the leeks look like a tasty side dish, it's great being able to pull stuff out the freezer like this isn't it?.  I really like the sound of the chicken dish too, yours looks really good.  I think DH would like that so have saved the link, thank you.  :D

Cookie, I read on that website where the biscuits are that she's trying to perfect Venetians.  I do remember them, a crisp biscuit with currants in and a creamy glaze all over it.  I hope she's successful  ;D  Also the coffee scroll biscuits; another recipe with coffee in its title but no coffee in the ingredients.  ;D

Love all the biscuits but not cooking any at the moment as I will eat them.  Donít seem to have a lot of will power.
Did make a SD loaf.  Used Laucke grain mix and added 100 g of seeds and grains that I had prepared and frozen.  I cooked it in the bread machine on bake.
Still have some roasted chicken leftover.  Will make Chow Mein and add the chicken.

I had a laugh about that too JulieO.
I plan to make the Venetian biscuits when the biscuit tin is empty.
Judy DH and DD like a biscuit with their coffee. (DD takes hers to work).
My Dad used to call me Cookie so that is the main reason I chose the name. He and I used to make some great creations. He would sit in his chair by the radio and instruct me. Poor Mum, although I don't think she minded as long as I cleaned up. ;D ;D

You were lucky that your Mum let you take over the kitchen cookie, mine never let me anywhere near it except to dry the dishes LOL.  I started married life not knowing much at all about cooking.
Julie, Iíll be having my first serving of the chicken dish tonight so Iíll let you know what I think of it.

Please do Judy, so many good reviews I can't not see it being a hit.

Nice memories to have Cookie.

My DH loves to take biscuits and or a slice of cake etc to work.  He said it's a nice reprieve with a cuppa when he gets to take a break  :D

The first meal from last nightís batch of Lemon Butter Chicken was really nice.  When I tasted the sauce last night it was a bit too lemony and the thyme was overpowering (Iíd only used half a teaspoon but dried thyme is always stronger than fresh which I prefer.). Tonight though it was very well balanced so I guess the quantities were OK.  I served the meal with 100g of pan fried cauliflower Ďriceí into which I added a spring onion and some garlic powder along with a zucchini timbale with a touch of carrot to add colour.  Both the cauli rice and the zucchini timbale were from freezer stock so it was a very quick meal indeed with 2 items heated in the microwave.  I struggled to get through the meal even though it doesnít look a huge serve.

Nice memories girls.  Judy, thanks for the comprehensive review.
Last night was nearly a disaster. I made up a Chow Mein recipe.  First problem was I used Brown rice which of course takes longer to cook. Next problem was that the amount of curry powder that I added to begin with wasnít enough , added more and that was too much. Had to add more Chinese cabbage to dilute the curry. Ok in the end.
I am very lucky in that I have come from a family of good cooks, luckily on both sides. By the age of 12, I could prepare and cook a roast dinner for our family.  There was always experimental cooking going on.  I suppose that is what has influenced me.
Judy, you have done very well considering your early cooking  life experience.  RAL uses your Roast Pork belly as a bench mark for all pork belly he eats.
