About this Cook
32 year old mother of 2 boys and a little girl. I love to cook, but with 3 children under the age of 5, things have to be quick and easy- for now. I try to make healthy meals, low in fat and high in fiber. However, I enjoy on making the occasional fattening, yummy desserts I find on this site!
My favorite things to cook
Italian food, desserts, comfort food
My favorite family cooking traditions
Decorating sugar cookies with my kids, cooking a large breakfast on Saturday mornings

Broccoli Cheese Soup V
I'm not a big fan of velveta, so I used 1lb cubed velveta and 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar (both 2% milk brand). I also added approx 2 tsp minced garlic to my fried chopped onion. (garlic will burn, so add after the onion has cooked for a couple of mins) I also added 4 large potatoes (cubed and with skin on)to the broccoli to cook in chicken broth until fork tender. We like our food alitte spicy, so I added some cajun seasoning and a few hot pepper flakes. Excellent recipe,I didn't miss the extra fat at all- do you really need it with all that butter? Serve with some hot rolls and you got supper!

Coconut Macaroons III
OMG, these cookies are soooo good and sooo easy to make. I followed the recipe exactly, except I added about 1/2 tsp. of almond extract in addition to the vanilla. I mixed the extracts with the condensed milk before adding to the coconut mixture. Wetting your hands with cold water before shaping the cookies helps keep the sticky batter from sticking to your hands. (a 14oz pkg coconut = 51/2 cups) After the cookies cooled, I drizzled them with semi-sweet chocolate. (put about 1 cup of chips in a qt. freezer bag and microwave for about 90 sec.- "squishing" chips after every 30 sec.- until melted- then snip a very small corner out of bag and drizzle over cookies.) The whole house smelled like toasted coconut. Oh, I also sprayed the foil with Pam with flour before placing my cookies on it- they came off very easy. I will never make another coconut macaroon recipe.

Thin Mint Crackers
I used low fat ritz crackers, and the turned out great. However, I didn't get as many servings as the recipe said I would.
