About this Cook
I'm a happily married mother of four. I am constantly taking regular recipes and trying to make them lighter and healthier for my family.
My favorite things to cook
We love Mexican food. It's one of the few foods that all my family can agree on. I also like to make casseroles or quick and easy balanced meals since we are always off to some sporting event or recital!
My cooking triumphs
I like to make special cakes every year for my kids birthdays. I usually try to pick something that reflects what they are into that year.

Coconut Macaroons III
My kids loved these ! After they cooled, we dipped them in chocolate. Great recipe ! Will definitely make them again.

Melt In Your Mouth Pumpkin Bread
This recipe is very good but with a few changes it can be a little healthier. I reduced the oil to one cup and use canola instead of vegetable oil. Canola has lots of mono and poylunsaturated fats that are better for you. Also, I used egg beaters instead of regular eggs. Also add 2 1/4 cups pumpkin instead of 2 cups and a little more cinnamon. We also used vanilla pudding instead of coconut and it is still delicious. It is by no means a lowfat snack but small changes can make a difference. Your family won't be able to tell the difference! I promise!
