About this Cook
Retired restaurateur: Household recently became vegetarian: Learning how to make balanced meals without meat. We don't miss meat a bit. Less fat in our bodies. We're feeling great.
My favorite things to cook
Sauteing was my gig. Now it's big pot meals. Love how the overall food cost has gone way down. Beans are great nutrition (especially when combined with grains) and I've tried many new recipes. It's a whole new world in my kitchen now. Also, just found a great bread machine at the Good Will. Look out, mama's cookin' up a storm!

Master Pizza Dough
My son asked for pineapple pizza for his eighteenth birthday. Thought I'd splurge and buy a Baboli (sp) but saw this and thought I'd give it a try. For some reason I've got a fear of yeast! Anyway... (I go for the throw it all together recipes usually) it was great! All my men raved. This added to our great day except I started crying when I realized we probably won't be together next year on Jonny's bdy. he'll be in college... oops there go the tears again. Thanks for an easy, great recipe.

Kidney Beans and Corn
Hi There, This recipe has become a staple in our home. I've made copies and handed it out to "The girls" at Thursday breakfast. Minor adjustments: lots more garlic, red pepper instead of green, more cumin, usually add a can of creamed corn and sometimes I'll add chick peas. This recipe is easy, inexpensive and makes for great leftovers. Serving this with a tasty grain makes for a meal with a "Complete protein". As being a new family of vegetarians, this is a great fallback recipe which we all enjoy. Even the teenage boys! Thanks again, Jesse

Unbeatable Pecan Pie
Thanks for the corn syrup alternative. I always made pecan pie (at holidays) for my husband because he needed it for memories' sake. But the thought of all that corn syrup made me sick just to imagine eating it. This recipe seemed so healthy; to use natural ingredients and no shortening to boot! This is not a low fat dessert though. But If you've got to have pecan pie on the menu; this is the one to go with.
