About this Cook
I'm an amatuer in the kitchen but I love to cook when I have the time & someone to cook for. I am a Jack Daniel's promotional model & I have to constantly watch what I eat, so I'm always looking for delicious healthy recipes.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite meal to cook is breakfast. It's the first meal of the day & usually the only meal I will cook ALL day LOL!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I'm part of a very large southern family as well as a very large northern family. I like taking our family recipes & tweaking them so they can be enjoyed on a low-fat level.
My cooking triumphs
I would have to say the recipe I make most often and succesfully is my grandmother's banana nut bread...lower in fat of course.
My cooking tragedies
The first tragedy that comes to mind was a triple layer chocolate cake with blue icing I made for a boyfriends birthday. He was a big North Carolina basketball fan & I wanted to impress him...disaster! I will post a picture of it!

Healthy Banana Cookies
I doctored these up considerably & they were still bland. I used applesauce instead of oil, 1&1/2 tsp vanilla, 1tsp cinnamon & added chocolate covered raisins.

Roasted Chickpeas
These did not cook evenly, some burned, some were still soft and others were just right; I cooked them @ the recomended temperature for the suggested time. The only thing I did differently was that I dry-roasted them. If anyone has any ideas on how to cook them evenly, please let me know cause I did enjoy the ones that turned out right.

Fluffy Pancakes
My morning guests loved this, as did I. I am only giving it 4 stars because I added some vanilla & cinnamon after reading a few other reviews. I did not know that adding white vinegar to milk could be a substitute for buttermilk. I only buy low-fat milk, so I was thrilled to learn this technique!
