About this Cook
I Love cooking, baking and I love Wine. This past year I improved my health by losing 83 pounds. This was a challenge at first when it came to cooking. However, now as I approach my goal, I have learned newer healthier ways to cook and enjoy food. Now I am an Independent Health Coach helping others find health in their lives too. The allrecipes website has been an awesome tool if finding great healthy recipes to prepare. For info on my weight loss program go to

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
Good recipe. Nice texture. However, for me, these were way too sweet. Next time I would cut back the white sugar by at least 1/2 cup. Also, not sure what dissolving the baking soda in hot water does. I will make these again though, with less sugar.

Banana Bars
This was a very tasty recipe, though I followed some of the recommendations in the comments. I used butter instead of shortening and had 4 small very ripe bananas on hand, so used all of them. I also used brown sugar instead of white and left out the lemon juice. Also, I did not glaze or frost these. In fact, I would reduce the sugar on these next time to about 1/2 cup. I prefer things less sweet. I had to bake an additional 10 minutes to get them done all the way. Probably due to the extra bananas. Great flavor and texture.

Canned Apple Pie Filling
This was a great and simple recipe to make. I used some Rum-Brandy I had left from the holidays to add a little flavor, about 1/2 cup. I also put 1 T. cinnamon and 1 tsp. nutmeg in mine. It is so good. The only issue I had was that after packing my apples into the jars and adding the hot syrup...once they all cooled the apples sort of settled and there ended up being too much headspace in my jars. I am going to either tap the apples down more or try cubing the apples the next time I make it. But it is a keeper for sure.
