About this Cook
I cook mostly for stress relief, and I'm usually not too bad at it. I could never sing, dance, paint, play this is one of my "things".
My favorite things to cook
Well, sweets are and always have been my specialty, but I've really started to enjoy cooking healthy goodies too :]
My favorite family cooking traditions
Vacation, Thanksgivving, and Christmas. My cousins and aunts love to cook, we do nothing but eat for days when we are together; the best part about it is that everyone dose something differnt and delicious.
My cooking triumphs
The "playground granola bars". I love them, my mom and granma love them, I don't know what I would have done without them.
My cooking tragedies
Well, the day after Thanksgiving 2007 I was chopping potatoes and cut my finger pretty badly. I needed stitches, but just taped it up instead :)

Whole Wheat Banana Nut Bread
This was some top notch stuff. Didn't have any nuts, so I threw in an extra banana, and replaced applesauce for the oil (health junky). This is SO moist and so good. Next time, however, I'll be adding some more nutmeg.

Playgroup Granola Bars
After a couple months of making these things, I needed to give them a higher rating and a re-review. I add a dab of natural peanut butter, a little flax seed, PURE vanilla extract. They turn out perfectly. I seriously have been baking these about once a week-my mom, grandmother, and I are addicted.

Yummy Honey Chicken Kabobs
Pretty good. I made the marinade just for grilled chicken breast, just needs a little something.
