About this Cook
I began really cooking when I got married in 2000. My cooking then was soley based on taste, not worrying about healthy. After my divorce in 2005, I decided it was time for me to lose weight. My cooking at that point changed to being all low fat, low calorie, but I just couldn't give up that good taste.
My favorite things to cook
I just love cooking in general. My favorite is cooking for grouops of people. I absolutely love entertaining company.
My favorite family cooking traditions
It would have to be our holiday dinners. I took over cooking the turkey years ago, but my family all gets together for all the sides.
My cooking triumphs
managing to make dinners that are consistantly low fat and low calorie, but my guy raves to all his friends and families about as being absolutely delicious! It broke my heart to finally tell him it was all healthy.
My cooking tragedies
I tried to make sourdough bread using a homemade starter. I thougth it was going good, but when I made my first loaf of bread using the starter, it came out more like a brick. It didn't rise at all, no matter how long I let it rest! I have given up with the traditional method, and now just add packaged yeast.

Delicious Pumpkin Bread
Turned out so moist and delicious! Ive gotten so many compliments on this bread! I used fresh roasted pumpkin, not canned, and added 1 teaspoon ginger. I also omitted the walnuts.
