About this Cook
In the past year, I have really started to enjoy cooking; I especially love creating healthy delicious meals that make my husband go "wow!". There is something about sharing a meal together that brings family and friends closer.
My favorite things to cook
I really like trying new things, especially baking and desserts. Lately I've been experimenting more with cooking with whole grains as my husband and I are trying to eat more healthy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
All the food our family has around Thanksgiving and Christmas. We always make plenty of cookies and decorate them for taking to get-togethers. Every Christmas my mom makes wecca bread (a swiss tradition), and tea ring for Christmas morning with coffee. Yum! My dad also makes wonderful whole grain pancakes, and my husband is famous for his ozark pie.

Cabbage Beef Soup
This soup was awesome - my husband couldn't believe how good it was and healthy too! My mom stopped by and had a bowl and now she wants the recipe too. I like that it is made with tomato-based broth instead of chicken broth. My changes: Instead of kidney beans I used black beans (I had them on hand), I subbed spaghetti sauce instead of tomato sauce (once again what I had on hand), and added some chopped sweet red peppers. It turned out thick, filling and delicious!

Easy Chicken Marsala
I used this recipe as a base and changed a few things around to make it healthier. Instead of using heavy cream and milk I used low fat half and half. I also sprinkled a a little bit of Gorgonzola cheese on top, delicious!

Southwestern Egg Rolls
These egg rolls were beyond good! I used egg roll wrappers instead of tortillas and baked them in the oven at 425 for 15 minutes and they came out crunchy and delicious! I added sliced carrots and omitted the spinach. Definitely a keeper!
