About this Cook
After raising 3 sons I now cook for myself.
My favorite things to cook
I love to try new dessert recipes
My favorite family cooking traditions
I enjoy gathering the family together for holidays. Holidays are my times to cook, bake and enjoy the family.
My cooking triumphs
a very large rose encrusted birthday cake for a surprise party.
My cooking tragedies
My first dinner for my in-laws. I tried a flaming....'something' What a huge fiasco. I barely knew how to boil water. Now I stick to improving on the the basics. Easy does it is my motto.

Whole Wheat and Quinoa Pancakes
I made a few substitutions since I lacked the ingredients. I ground my own steel cut oats & substituted oat flour for the quinoa flour. I did not have vanilla yogurt & used Apple Pie flavored [ from Aldi's]. I then added a 1/2 cut chopped walnuts. But the basic pancake was surprisingly light & fluffy! Why use a packaged pancake mix when a healthy alternative is easy, tasty & at your fingertips?

Mediterranean Bean Salad
Great taste. 'I agree- if you can't take the heat! Stay out of the kitchen! This was great as 'is' as well as personalizing to your taste.
