Happy Easter!
About this Cook
I'm a stay at home mom to 2 boys; 6 & 2. We just moved to Hawauu and so far we love it here! I love to bake, get outside, play with the kids, and keeping the TV off. :)
My favorite things to cook
I usually get into recipes that I myself will eat; I'm somewhat of a picky eater and I know the chef is required to eat their creations, right?! With that said, I love to bake because I have a major sweet tooth - yum!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I definitely get into cooking for the holidays. I have many memories of my mom going all out, and it's a tradition I'd like my boys to remember too.
My cooking triumphs
I haven't gotten too creative yet. My biggest baking accomplishment of the year was my first apple pie (all from scratch) this last Thanksgiving. It was awesome!
My cooking tragedies
My biggest tragedy is frying; I am just awful at frying. I usually burn it, so I avoid it at all costs. If my hubby won't eat it (I don't have a dog) it will get trashed.

Healthy Banana Cookies
I understand this is a banana cookie, but know the banana flavor seems to overpowers whatever you add to it; chocolate chips, fruit, or nuts. I like bananas, but I think next time I might just add 2 bananas instead.

Creamy Broccoli and Rice
I used what I had on hand - cream of mushroom soup, white rice, and 1 C broccoli it ended up being much more rice than veggies; I think there is room to add more broccoli/cauliflower. it is on the bland side, but to me, that's what kids like. easy to make, so thumbs up!

Applesauce Oatmeal Cookies
yummy cookie, especially warm. not a super sweet cookie. it reminds me of a muffin. I think it needs something more; maybe some chopped apple chunks?
