About this Cook
I'm married, and the Mom of a beautiful baby girl named Callan. I am also a registered Dietician (I work part time at the local hospital). I love cooking healthy foods for my husband and myself....and hope to introduce my daughter to our healthy lifestyle and love of food!
My favorite things to cook
Almost anything....pastas, vegetables, appetizers, muffins, etc.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom didn't cook a whole lot growing up....a tradition I am hoping to change with my own family!
My cooking triumphs
Never used to be good at cakes....but I am getting a lot better. Made an awesome Pumpkin cake last year...and a great carrot cake for Easter.

Mulligatawny Soup I
Yum! I loved this. I left the cream out of mine, but added a tbsp. of whole milk to my toddler's bowl. I also pureed hers (as I do with most of her soups; as this gets her to eat them better!) I did add more curry at the end, probabably an extra tsp. I also used brown rice. Next time, I will add a little more chicken, and maybe a touch of cinnamon!

Quick and Easy Vegetable Soup
Yum! This was really good. I was a little scared of the V8 (since I don't like it as a drink), but it turned out great. I took a tip from another reviewer, and pureed it for my toddler and topped with shredded mozzerella, and she loved it! I froze a portion and it reheated great...just have to add some water or broth.

Slow Cooker Chicken and Dumplings
This is soooo good. And it's very easy...even my husband can make it! I left him the recipe...and some VERY specific instructions....and he did it! I did cook the dumpling more like 90 minutes and subbed 1 can of cream of mushroom for cream of chicken.
