What comes to your mind when you hear about stuffed peppers?  Beef?  Cheese?  Sounds good to me!  However, with a few changes, they can be just as tasty with a few changes and very compliant with the Weight Watcher's diet. Today I will makeover "Stuffed Green Peppers I."  The… MORE

About this Cook
Am I nuts? Yes. Am I hilarious? Yes. Will I rock your socks? You betcha. Lol, so in real life, I'm an elementary music teacher who has a passion for laughter, singing, and cooking!
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking with my crockpot! I make delicious soups with it that are to die for! Also, I enjoy whipping up stir-fries and all kinds of different pancakes, which are my favorite breakfast food. Yummy! Of course, I have a huge sweet tooth, so I enjoy whipping up large batches of cookies and cakes from time to time as well.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I started baking cookies with my grandma when I was in elementary school. She lives less than half a mile from my parents house and I spent tons of time over there as a kid cooking all sorts of cookies, cakes, and candies. My grandma makes all sorts of fun candies at Christmas, including peanut brittle, almond clusters, and fudge. That's my favorite tradition ;D.
My cooking triumphs
My mom often says that when I make her dishes, they somehow turn out much better than when she makes them. This is true because I know what I like to taste and I add and subtract things from recipes as I find it necessary.
My cooking tragedies
Going from an electric stove to a gas stove is quite an experience...enough said. Oh, and I also made biscotti once that no one liked. I don't think it was bad, per se, but the real problem was that there was tons of it and no one wanted to eat it. I ended up throwing a bunch of it into the cornfield next to my parents' house for composting purposes. I had such high hopes for that biscotti, so it was a very sad time indeed.

This was so delicious and made the house smell so good! I look forward to having it again soon.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
While a recipe that says it's the best usually isn't, these turned out to be very amazing! True to their word, they were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I made no changes to the recipe, but did make much larger cookies. I yielded 32 large cookies. I used an air bake cookie sheet and got excellent results--14 minutes to bake at 335 degrees F. I will always use this recipe from now on!

Banana Cake II
This is so good! I did a few small tweaks to make it lighter and it didn't taste at all like it was a 'diet' recipe to me. I used 3/4 cup of applesauce to replace the butter, egg whites in place of the eggs, and did the milk trick that everyone is talking about in the reviews (put 1 1/2 TBSP of vinegar into the 3/4 cup, then fill the rest with milk to sour it). I also used closer to 2 cups of mashed bananas (about four large, ripe bananas). This cake was very moist and tender and a big hit with my husband. This teacher gives it an A+!!!
