About this Cook
As co-owner with my husband of a small business, sometimes our lives feel rather hectic- so my favorite types of recipes are easy, tasty, and unique. I've been a vegetarian for longer than a year now after watching "Forks Over Knives". It's been a fun change of character and I'll probably never go back to meat.
My favorite things to cook
COOKIES! I bake all kinds of cookies- but not the fancy-smancy ones that are only good for looking quaint next to your cup of Earl Grey. I make fat, chewy ones that take a giant glass of milk to go down.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother was a busy lady, so she liked to make casseroles most days. But so what? Broccoli casserole, squash casserole, ratatouille: all delicious vegetarian meals!
My cooking triumphs
The Chocolate Chip Cookie. Honestly, I have tried different recipes but you can't beat Nestle Toll House if you do it right.
My cooking tragedies
It has taken me too long to learn the art of "sauce". "Don't put the heat on too high!" was my mom's rally cry.

Veggie Pizza
I followed the recipe as it was stated and there was WAY too much of the cream cheese/ranch mixture for the crust. It made the pizza heavy and gooey. I really wish I had only put half of the mixture on the pizza crust.

Old Fashioned Strawberry Pie
I substituted 1/4 cup cornstarch instead of flour, and while it held together well, it tasted just like strawberry jam and toast. Did anyone else notice that?

Blue Cheese Dressing
Don't change anything about this AMAZING recipe! We had this dressing with buffalo chicken tenders (recipe from this site), and it was sooooooo good.
