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 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.
