About this Cook
I know how to have fun in the kitchen, I enjoy my mistakes just as much as my triumphs. I like pretty food, and strive to make dishes healthier without losing flavor.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake, but have to resist on the grounds that I love to taste too! Really enjoy good vegetable recipes and great tasting healthy alternatives to any recipe.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lamb Chops on Easter, Betty Rose's Breakfast Cookies on the first day of school, Mom's Meatloaf, Dippy dinners for the kids (otherwise known as fondue)
My cooking triumphs
Lighter, healthier recipes that actually improve the taste!
My cooking tragedies
Can't seem to get Garlic Bread to the table without at least one little black edge!

Spinach Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms
Very nice recipe! I made these as an appetizer by simply cutting each into 6 pieces while they were still slightly warm. The prep was easy. I used frozen spinach, thawed, and squeezed dry so this resolved the problem that some reviewers had with the difficulty handling fresh spinach. Once all of the ingredients were added, the spinach mixture topped the mushroom easily. I could form the mixture to fit. I baked them longer than noted (both the mushroom initially, and then the second bake too). These were wonderful, lovely to serve, and mostly guilt free. Thanks for sharing your recipe.

Jacksonville Carrots
I have had a hard time finding good carrot recipes, this one was amazing. Some of my family members love any vegetable recipe and they were thrilled with this one. Some of my family members avoid vegetables and they were thrilled with this one too, that is rare. Thanks for sharing.

Perfect Turkey
This past year I had to have two back to back Thanksgiving dinners, with all of the fixings. I don't like to experiment when having company but the first dinner was very informal and included my son who is trying to eat healthier. This version, with the vegetables as stuffing seemed perfect and it was! So good, that I made it for the second dinner as well and it was a hit. I stuffed it with all kinds of vegetables - I added butter nut squash which was my favorite of all. Great Recipe. Thank you so much for sharing!
