My daughter and I
About this Cook
Mom of one wee little princess, Echo. Living in China for awhile. Love cooking healthy for my family. UPDATE: My litte princess passed away while in China, from complications caused by a hole in her diagphram we didn't know about. The doctors say she was born with it. Pray for us as we bring her home.
My favorite things to cook
Healthy things I can't burn and that don't turn into rocks.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Making things from scratch and using garden fresh produce.
My cooking triumphs
Magic stews. I can turn anything into delicious stew it seems.
My cooking tragedies
Pie crusts. Mine are about as "soft & flaky" as a rock.

Pineapple Zucchini Muffins
Cut the oil in half and substituted, of all things, pureed cantaloupe (it is what I had on hand!) left out a quarter cup of sugar and upped the spice a little by adding ground ginger - and as always I used WholeWheatWhite flour instead of reg. white

Big Soft Ginger Cookies
Followed the recipes a 'T' and it turned out GREAT! Dough was easy to roll and cookies came out soft and chewy and stayed that way! Great flavor too!

Spicy Eggplant
When I originally posted this recepie it called for Thai chili garlic paste (or chili bean sauce) depending on what you can find. In China I use spicey black bean sauce, and in the U.S. the Thai paste. Depends on what I have availiable. I'm not sure why it would ever be too liquid, as I more often have to add extra water rather than thicken it. I love this recepie and it is a staple in our household. Fast easy & healthy. Just the way I like them ^_^
