About this Cook
After fifteen years of marriage, I am finally starting to feel more comfortable in the kitchen and even beginning to enjoy cooking for my family. I love making simple, but healthy and natural meals.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite things to cook are those recipe my family loves: Tuna Noodle Casserole, Orange Chicken, Vegetable Lasagna, basic salmon dishes, homemade bread, etc.
My cooking tragedies
I cooked my first Thanksgiving turkey in 2008. Regretfully, I did not purchase a thermometer, but instead depended on the pop-up timer to indicate when my turkey was done. Unfortunately, it never popped up, so you can guess how the turkey turned out! :) (2009's turkey was fabulous, though.)

Mary's Meatloaf
Meatloaf is one of my husband's favorite dishes and he absolutely loves this recipe. Like another reviewer, I used 1/2 cup gluten free whole oats rather than bread and it was amazing-- both the flavor and texture. I've also started using coconut palm sugar or maple syrup instead of brown sugar. This is the ONLY recipe I've been using now for over two years.

Ultimate Maple Snickerdoodles
Just made this recipe for the second day in a row-- It's easy and absolutely delicious. I used the natural, Spectrum brand shortening and used coconut sugar in place of Maple sugar because I did not have Maple sugar (which I'm sure is delicious). But even so, the cookies turned out beautifully! Having the dark and light sugar crystals on the outside of the cookie looked really nice. The bake time worked perfectly for mine-- they remained soft. My daughter took them to her youth group, and she said the kids went "nuts" over them :)

Simple Scones
These are amazing. Unlike other reviewers, I preferred not to use a food processor. It was no problem to hand-grate the frozen butter into the flour and the scones were so wonderful. My hubby can not get enough of them. I made them with raisins, but think orange/cranberry would be wonderful; so they will be next :)
