About this Cook
I'm actually a pretty awful cook. When I went off to college I could make scrambled eggs and pancakes from a box. That was about it. I'm entirely self taught because my husband is a fantastic cook and won't tell me how he does anything!
My favorite things to cook
Anything with 6 ingredients or less, anything I can throw in a crockpot, most of Rachel Ray's 30 Minute Meals.
My cooking triumphs
The recipe on this site for Mango Berry Salad, which I totally copied from something I'd ordered at a restaurant. It was to die for so I tried to recreate it at home. I posted it on this site and to date 1400 people have saved it to their recipe box!
My cooking tragedies
In college I wanted to make a cake with two layers, so I bought two boxes of cake mix and poured it all into the same pan. It overflowed all over the oven, was burned around the edges, and raw in the middle. Yum!

Candied Carrots
I've made this three times in two weeks. The kids LOVE them! If you cut them into small sticks like the recipe suggests, they do take 20 minutes to cook. If you chop them up smaller just start checking after 10 minutes or so. You must add the pepper! The sugar/pepper combination is amazing. It's not spicy but it just really adds something amazing.

Pear and Gorgonzola Cheese Pizza
I made a paleo crust from cauliflower and almond meal and used the rest of the recipe on top. It was fantastic and I felt so good about how healthy it was. I substituted arugula for the chives.

Brown Sugar Meatloaf
This was practically inedible to me. I used half the amount of brown sugar and it was still too sweet, and waaaaay too much onion. Didn't like it at all.
