About this Cook
Retired Registered Nurse. Nutrition and flavor are food prep priorities, in that order. I prefer food prep term over cooking because I try to follow a raw diet as much as possible. Alkaline diets = health.
My favorite things to cook
Salads. Raised my son on them and he prefers them over sweets! That's a great record considering he is now 31 and training his own kids to love nutrition first.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Getting my husband involved. He is wonderful in the kitchen and I know that when my recipe passes his taste test it truly is a winner!
My cooking triumphs
Learning to cook gluten-free and having a recipe result in delicious!
My cooking tragedies
Not cooking for 11 years while I was single and practicing nursing. I was too exhausted then to care!

Ghirardelli Coconut Almond Torte with Chocolate Chips
This is delicious! I think the previous reviewer has a cake confused with a torte...This recipe never claimed to be a cake!
