About this Cook
I am a 28 year old mom to a busy eight year old boy! My husband is a great cook and usually does most of our cooking. But we are trying to eat healthier so I am finding that I like to do more of the cooking so I can control what goes into our food.
My favorite things to cook
My fave thing to cook is soups and chowders! I also like casseroles, crock pot recipes, cookies, pies, and bars. I make the best homemade pizza using my bread machine to make the crust!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My son asks for Bats and Cobwebs for supper on Halloween every year (see my Shared/Submitted Recipes for recipe). Around Christmas my son and I make lots of treats and he gets to pick out some of the recipes that we make.

Clark's Quiche
I made this for Food Day at work. Everyone loved it and several asked for the recipe. Make sure you use Deep Dish pie crusts. I decreased the eggs to 7 and had to decrease the cheese because it wouldn't all fit in the shells. Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. The prep time takes about an hour. I don't know how the author could possibly have done it in 15 minutes. FYI: Walmart has Great Value branded shredded cheese packages with a blend of Monterey Jack and Cheddar!

Crustless Spinach Quiche
This was my first time making and eating a crustless quiche so I wasn't sure what to expect. I wanted a healthy breakfast and we love quiche so I decided to give this a try… and make it even a little healthier. It was delicious! It's easy to warm up a slice for a quick breakfast. With the following modifications there are 240 calories per slice: I added chopped mushrooms with the spinach and sautéed together with the onions, decreased the cheese to 2 cups using an 8 oz block of swiss that I shredded, added 1/2 cup of low fat cottage cheese, added a few green onions and topped with roma tomato slices. I read online that your quiche is done when the internal temperature reaches 170 degrees. Do not let it go over 185 degrees as it will get tough.

Mom's Zucchini Bread
This recipe was so delicious! The bread is so moist! I did make a few changes to make the recipe healthier: I used 1.5 cups all-purpose flour, 1.25 cups white whole wheat flour, and .25 cup flax. I added an extra tsp of cinnamon per other reviews. I used .5 cup vegetable oil and .5 cup unsweetened applesauce. I decreased the sugar to 1 cup white sugar and .75 cup brown brown. I increased the zucchini to 3 cups total and do not drain the water from the zucchini as that adds moisture to the bread. I made 1 loaf baked for 54 minutes and 12 muffins baked for 20 minutes. I covered the loaf half way through with foil around the edges (a square of foil with a rectangle cut out for the middle) to prevent the edges getting over browned.
