About this Cook
I'm a homeschooling mom of 4 and have been cooking since I was a child.
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking new things and finding healthy recipes for my family. I also love to bake and just recently got into baking fresh bread. It's so hard to find store bought bread without high fructose corn syrup (possible, but hard).
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family always bakes goodies for Christmas. I also grew up eating my grandmother's home cooking from her garden and pasture. I really miss those meals!
My cooking triumphs
Anytime I find a recipe that is healthy that my kids will eat is a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
When I was a teenager, my mother was a single mom who worked, so I did a lot of the cooking. However, I didn't really know what I was doing so I would just grab this and that and attempt a meal. Sometimes we could eat it, sometimes not:) But now I can grab things (without any measuring) and throw them together and it taste pretty good. So out of tragedies comes triumphs!

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars
I enjoyed these for breakfast. However, don't sub all the butter with applesauce like I did. It really needs the butter.

Garbanzo Bean Chocolate Cake (Gluten Free!)
I made this recipe as stated and it tasted pretty good. It is a little grainy, but I couldn't taste the beans. I will probably make it again, maybe with some coffee or mint flavoring.
