About this Cook
I'm trying to get my family to eat a little healthier. When you start tracking what is actually going in to your body, it's enough to make you sick. So I'm on here to find some low cal, fat, sugar, cholesterol and sodium meals that don't make me want to gag.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Ha! We don't have any. My whole family hates to cook.
My cooking triumphs
I made homemade barbeque chicken pizza once. Absolutely lovely. Even if I was the only one who would try it, it was delicious.
My cooking tragedies
Ha ha. About everything I touch. I really am a terrible cook.

Stuffed Peppers
I've never tried a stuffed pepper before. The recipe was quick and easy, and I LOVED it. Will definitely make in the future. Changes to recipe I made: I didn't add Italian seasoning, because I don't care for it, and I added a bit more garlic because I love garlic. I also added a little bit of mozzarella cheese on top. It was excellent.

Baked Sweet Potato Sticks
These were.... okay. Just ho hum. Granted, it was my first time having any sweet potatoes at all, so I don't have a base line to judge from. I found I did like the vegetable, but this was a little bland. I added some generic seasoning blend and it was better.

Mom's Best Waffles
I added a lot of vanilla and more sugar. Ended up being one of the most dense waffles I've ever had. Flavor's not bad, but will not be making again.
