I graduated with a B.S. in Nutritional Sciences and I have always loved cooking and baking! I never experimented much in the kitchen because I'm a pretty picky eater... But ever since I got married, I've been trying all sorts of things so my husband won't starve!
My favorite things to cook
Honestly... oats! I love oatmeal, oat bran, oat pancakes, and everything you can make with oats! I love mixing new ingredients into it. I also love substituting ingredients in recipes to make them healthier. Bread is my favorite thing to bake and eat... I make all different kinds that are low-fat, sugar-free, and whole grain. My Dark Chocolate Chip Banana, Applesauce Pumpkin, and Banana Rhubarb Breads are definitely my favorites!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom has always been an AMAZING cook! She can make everything well and has always enjoyed cooking big family meals and entertaining friends. Her Christmas cookies are definitely the best tradition. She makes hundreds of cookies and tries some new recipes every year. There is always at least one new cookie to taste!
My cooking triumphs
Making healthy, vegetarian meals that my husband actually enjoys has been a big triumph for me! It's nice to only have to make one dinner each night!
My cooking tragedies
Definitely my one and only attempt at black bean brownies... they were really gross...
