About this Cook
I have been a member with a profile since 2007, but was scoping the site many years before that printing recipes. It was a life saver in college and continues to be well used today, as my eating habits change. I graduated from the University of Michigan with a B.A. degree in Liberal Arts. I also received a certification in Culinary Arts, from a local community college, out of interest and to help me pay my bills to complete my college.
My favorite things to cook
For most every day dinners, I enjoy quick, lightened, or healthy meals. My favorite kitchen gadget has become my blender. I went through different models before finally getting a Vitamix machine which I had really wanted. I love finding recipes on Allrecipes or the internet to try in it for new smoothies, fruit drinks, soups, salsas, sauces, and fruit ice creams. I consume more vegetables and fruits than before and have lost weight in the process. I use it daily for breakfast or lunch. Feel free to "like" my page below, on Facebook. I post healthy smoothies, tasty & nutritious recipe finds, along with a variety of brand highlights, throughout the year, from Allrecipes: https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-Blender-Woman/190872231084570
My favorite family cooking traditions
We had quite a few growing up. Too many to mention. Now, I enjoy finding new recipes, to try each year, to take to holiday parties. I have a few recipe boxes, one which is just for holidays, which keeps expanding.
My cooking triumphs
As a child it was baking and decorating dozens of Christmas cookies, each year, at my grandmas. Currently, it is all my ever growing knowledge in cooking, and becoming an Allrecipes Allstar. Here is a video, I was a proud part of, for Kahlua and Allrecipes.com: http://allrecipes.com/video/4106/kahlua-coffee-break/detail.aspx
My cooking tragedies
I am sure we have all had a few, that's how we learn. My biggest kitchen dissasters were having a glass dish explode in the oven and using a broiler for the first time and catching the vegetables on fire. I have learned, don't ever leave the broiler when it's on.

Lentils and Rice with Fried Onions (Mujadarrah)
I was hoping this would be really good with how affordable it is to make with cabinet staples. However, it really just did not have any flavor. I also had to stand over the stove watching it, making it time consuming. I like lentils, but guess I just prefer them in soup. My recommendation if making this dish is to cook the rice separately, so as to not over cook the lentils. I added a little garlic salt to season and it helped some.

Carrot Cake Smoothie
Whoa, this is a little strange. It was kind of more like carrot cake batter than carrot cake. The spices even turn it that dark batter color. I really liked though how healthy it is with the cinnamon, ginger, carrots, and fruit. I only had frozen fruit, so I had to use an additional 1/2 cup non dairy milk. I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk.

Delicious Spinach Manicotti
I thought this was pretty good, but just had to change it some based on what I had in the house. I only had about 2/3 of a container or ricotta and it worked fine. I also cut back the mozzarella by about half. I couldnt find my Italian seasoning and just sprinkled a little Goya adobo seasoning on the filling for flavor with some additional black pepper. I do not care for jarred sauce, so I just put some unsalted canned tomatoes in my blender with a pinch of garlic sauce and used that. Only other change was using just 1 egg. I only baked it about 20~25 minutes , added a little cheese then 5 or so minutes more.
