About this Cook
I live in Brownsburg, Indiana with my husband and dog named Lilly (see my picture). I am a recreation and special event programmer and enjoy just about anything outdoors. I have always enjoyed cooking and making my own foods. My husband in the grill-master in the family, though.
My favorite things to cook
I don't like spending long hours in the kitchen. I like quick and simple dishes that taste like they took much longer to make. I've worked on a much healthier eating lifestyle lately, and as a result I have learned how great fresh produce and foods are. I like the challenge of finding healthy recipes that taste like the real deal.
My cooking triumphs
I can make just about anything. I've gotten more daring over time and have started experimenting more with recipes.
My cooking tragedies
Eggs. I can make egg patties for breakfast sandwiches, but other than that, it's a disaster. I've only made successful scrambled eggs one time. Sometimes the most simple things are the most difficult!

Canadian Won Tons
These were excellent and fairly simple. The store was out of won ton wrappers, so I picked up egg roll wrappers instead. You can cut them down to size or make a larger version...both were still very good. These are a little spicy (I like spice),so you may want to cut down a little if you like things mild.

Alfredo Light
I have made this several times. While it is not your true homestyle alfredo, it is very good and has very good flavor...and is simply much much healthier. If your sauce isn't thickening, bump up the heat a little and/or add a little thickening agent (flour or corn starch). It's not a super thick, creamy sauce, so don't stand around waiting for it to get that thick...there is no butter and cream, so you have to sacrifice thickness a little. This is great warmed up as leftovers, also. I suggest giving it a try if you're trying to eat healthier and love pasta.

Pork Tenderloin with Apples
This recipe was excellent and very easy to make. I used pork chops because they were on sale that week. You can use any cut of pork and simply adjust the cooking time accordingly (use a meat thermometer if you aren't sure). Use whatever white wine you have around...I didn't have the one named, but it still turned out great. The apple sauce was really great. I will make this recipe again.
