About this Cook
(Us, actually!) Jeffnie is our lame entity name- we're Jeff and Jennie, about to be married, and we enjoy cooking together. (well, Jeff is the onion chopper/measuring cup wrangler- Jennie provides the hovering over the stove parts) We're dorks. Nerds? We enjoy reading books, playing computer games, and Karaoke. We've been known to play the occasional game of Zombies. We drive a broken blue station wagon, and we have a Siamese cat named Kaia.
My favorite things to cook
We like German food, Indian food, and anything with green peppers. On the rare occasion that we bake, we stick to tried and true family recipes. Jennie sucks at baking. Jeff loves her anyway.
My favorite family cooking traditions
No real traditions for us as a couple, we both have our favorite recipes from our moms.
My cooking triumphs
Any time Jeff eats vegetables, it's a major victory!
My cooking tragedies
Um... if the can of pumpkin in your cupboard is actually dusty and does not have an expiration date, and if it happens to smell like metal when you open it, that does not bode well for your pumkin bars. 'Nuff said.

Curried Mustard Greens with Kidney Beans
This one goes in the "keep" pile, for sure! The one thing I changed was that I added 2 tsp of chili garlic sauce instead of pepper flakes. And next time, I will double the beans.

Spiced Pumpkin Molasses Muffins
I was out of molasses, so I used dark honey. I also cut back on the cloves a little, and did 1/3 C each of pepitas, walnuts, and regular raisins instead of 1/2 raisins 1/2 walnuts. ABSOLUTELY SPECTACULAR MUFFINS. Perfect combo of dense/fluffy. Moist, not too sweet, great (!!) texture. Ever wonder why butter exists? It exists to be put on these muffins. Ups the fat content, but wow. Even more spectacular, should be illegal. Worth the effort.

Low-Fat Blueberry Bran Muffins
Great recipe! Next time, I plan on decreasing the sugar to 1/2 cup because these came out a little sweet for me, but I'm a huge fan otherwise
