About this Cook
I am married and have a son in elementary school and a daughter in high school who have to sample my food experiments at times. I provide childcare for 3 children ages 0-3 and serve meals for them that are healthy and developmentally appropriate.
My favorite things to cook
Anything easy with chocolate.
My cooking tragedies
Making a meal for dinner with several things going at once. Something baking in the oven started on fire. I properly use the fire extinguisher and put it out, but everything cooking on the stove top had to be thrown out because of the extinguisher "dust" that went everywhere. "Let's go out to eat tonight!"

Overnight Refrigerator Oatmeal
Wasn't sure about "cold oatmeal" at first but intrigued by the nutrition. Now it has grown on me after a few mornings. I used Kefir in place of Greek yogurt and skim milk for sweetened almond milk. I also added 1 Tbsp chia seeds. Thanks for sharing.

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo
Easy and delicious. I used 15 oz canned mushrooms (family preference), fat free half and half for the cream to lighten calories/fat, and parmesean in place of Romano (couldn't find it). Thanks so much for sharing, new family favorite.

Gingerbread Coffee
Tastes just like a gingerbread cookie was dunked in my coffee. Very easy to make. I didn't have whipped cream but I'm sure that would only make it 6 stars instead. I wasn't sure about waiting the full 10 minutes to let the mix refrigerate (impatient to try it) but I saw how the mix puffed up a little with the baking soda and turned a nice caramel brown color. Thanks for sharing!

Back To School Already?

Hard to believe, but many kids will be back in school at the end of the month. Get ready.

You won't believe all the things you can do with cauliflower. It's a great low-carb option.
