About this Cook
Obviously, I live in Indiana. I am south of Indianapolis, where the cornfields end and the hills begin. Very pretty area and extremely affordable cost of living. Husband and I are retired (mid 60's). Daughter and her family in Colorado (military SIL). Son has moved to Denmark, married there and now has little ones. So we travel.
My favorite things to cook
I know some people live to eat, but I am more in the eat to live category. I like to make healthy, easy food that takes little prep and clean up. Trying not to use prepackaged convenience foods. Just keeping things as simple as I can.

Pumpkin Cake III
Easy to put together for a delicious homemade treat. My only sub was to use 1/2 cup oil and 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce in place of the 1 1/4 cup oil. I spread most of the batter in a 9x13 pan and finished the rest in a six inch diameter round cake pan. We got to sample the cake and still had a whole one for guests! Used cream cheese frosting. I am glad that people make changes to recipes and post reviews anyway...I would not have made this with all that oil. Thanks for the information about using applesauce and oil, and even less than called for. It worked fine the way I did it. I cannot understand why people do not want to know about substitutions to recipes.

Cilantro-Lime Dressing
So full of flavor. I brushed the boneless skinless chicken breasts with this dressing as they cooked. Served the chicken with soba noodles and spooned the dressing over the noodles and the chicken. What a great taste! Thanks for this yummy recipe!

Parmesan Brussels Sprouts
This is a tasty way to prepare Brussels sprouts. The ingredient list is strange here. Butter is listed three times. And only six Brussels sprouts? I used many more than that! Sprouts are sold here in the fresh produce in a net bag (maybe a pound?). Quite a few...filled my skillet. I used a tablespoon of butter and a little avocado oil to brown them. Added a little water (could use chicken broth) to help them cook. Sprinkled on the cheese and seasonings and covered a minute to melt the cheese. (No added butter.) I think some walnuts would be a nice addition if you want to make it a little more special. Very pretty side dish! Thank you.
