About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I like to find ways to incorporate as many fruits, vegetables, and herbs into my recipes to maximize their health benefits. I am huge into the healing (and killing) power of foods. This said; I cannot resist baking sugary treats!

Kettle Corn
This is delicious! I didn't have any vegetable oil on hand, so I used 1/4 cup canola oil with some salt added. I used 1/3 cup of sugar because I wanted mine extra sweet. I don't know if it is because of my changes, but it took a little longer to pop than it does without sugar, so don't worry if it isn't popping right away! The sugar forms a crispy crust on the popcorn. Yum.

Breadless Stuffing
This is sooo delicious! It is great to have something so healthy for me that tastes like a food that I would usually try and eat in moderation without it being full of chemical ingredients I can't pronounce. It is a little dryer than stuffing made with bread iw, but it isn't dry in and of itself. I love sage but found it to be a little too strong. Next time I will try using about 3/4 the amount called for. I took another reviewer's advice and used a spoon to mash the beans-- definitely easier this way. Thanks for a great, healthy recipe that will be on my menu at least once a month!

Low Fat Full Flavor Cream of Broccoli Soup
So, I was looking at the ingredients and awesome nutrition of this recipe and thought to myself, how creamy and delicious could it really be? When I tasted the broth prior to blending, I got the urge to add extra herbs, but I waited. I am happy I did! This recipe is a creamy texture in the sense of a smoothie more than the "creamy" you tend to associate with soups. However, I am 100% okay with this because it is so healthy and so delicious! It isn't too thin or too thick and smelled great cooking -- it brought my roommate out of her room to see what was cooking! I added 1/2 a cup of cheddar cheese when I added the milk, and it really didn't make it any better because this recipe is perfect as is. So, my advice would be to skip adding cheese and save the calories! The only thing that I recommend doing differently is adding garlic when sauteing the onions -- I added three cloves because I am a garlic lover and think it makes ANY soup better! Thanks for this recipe. EDIT: I had friends over for dinner and offered this while the main course was finishing cooking. Three of them said, "ehh... I don't really like broccoli soup but will try it if you have some cheese for it". Well I did (sharp cheddar) and they loved it!
