About this Cook
My loving shih tzu, Chewey, graciously posed for my profile picture. I love food, nutrition, running, and yoga. Making my own food gives me control to pick and choose where my calories come from. AllRecipes.com has undoubtedly improved the quality of my exercise life!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking vegetable stir-fries for myself, and gourmet breads for others. I also love sharing easy, from-scratch recipes I've found from AllRecipes.com with others!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mom has a wonderful banana bread recipe that everybody loves! It's from her friend, otherwise I'd share it...
My cooking triumphs
I made a healty version of waffles from scratch at a family vacation--everyone loved them! I got lots of compliments. It was a glorious day. :)
My cooking tragedies
I got a beautiful new CuisineArt mixer for Christmas last year. I decided that I would make the most fabulous banana bread ever. Long story short, the mixer was on a high setting when I decided to switch positions of the mixing instrument to the bowl... and half the batter splattered EVERYWHERE. It was one of those moments when you just stare at the new development for a few minutes, ha ha. Luckily, no one saw my blunder and the bread turned out... edible.

Black Bean Brownies
Definitely will be making these again! Thank you for the recipe! I followed the other suggestions: rinse the beans & blend for a long long time, used more sugar, used the coffee. Next time I make it, I'll be stirring the chocolate chips into the dough so they don't fall off. Such a good rich-chocolate fix!

Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pao de Queijo)
Loved it! The rubbery, chewey texture was the best part! Thank you for the recipe! I will try switching the ratios of water and oil next time.

Crustless Spinach Quiche
Making this again! I followed others' suggestions--basil, garlic, bits of ham. I was worried about too much onion, but it turns out it was perfect! Loved it! Will add a few more egg whites next time.
