About this Cook
I love to bake and cook simple, family-friendly meals. I am working on a healthier diet, so I am often tweaking recipes to lower fat and sugar content. This is a huge challenge many times, but it keeps my cooking hobby alive while learning to eat better.
My favorite things to cook
Cheesecake and other desserts are my favorites, but I do these rarely since we are watching our weight and cholesterol. I love to simmer a pot of soup or chili on the stove. I also use the crock pot about once a week.
My cooking triumphs
Any time the kids like it, it's good.
My cooking tragedies
Cakes never quite turn out for me. I usually have some mishap that makes them look terrible. They stick in the pan or don't layer well. Thankfully they still taste great! I enjoy making cakes for family occasions nonetheless, as a homemade cake makes the occasion.

Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
The original recipe deserves 5 stars. However, my changes could make them a heart-healthier 6 ;) I used half whole wheat flour (2 cups of wheat, two of white), increased the oats to 3 cups and eliminated the white sugar (just used 2 cups brown). I also substituted some of the butter for unsweetened applesauce. The entire family likes them.

Quinoa Side Dish
A great quinoa side that would complement many different main dishes. I used dried spices (on hand) and added them when it was simmering. The kids ate it without complaining, which is rare with quinoa.
