First weekend with Dave gone and all 3 kids to myself. I made an amazing ministroni soup and some granola bars. Everything turned out well but will make a few changes in the future. The granola bars need to be bakedĀ an extra 10,Ā for my preference. I like them a bit crisper. The ministroni… MORE

About this Cook
I cook to please my family and my three kiddos are the best food critics. They all have their favorites but I like to try new things with them. Thankful to have traveled the world from my military career, I find my cooking is influenced by the foods I've loved from the places I've lived.
My favorite things to cook
I enjoy cooking everything! I like to make dishes that are as aestheticly pleasing as they are delicious! I also experiment to make dishes and desserts as low cal, low fat and low sodium as possible without ruining texture and flavor.
My favorite family cooking traditions
baking an assortment of cookies for Christmas; eating sauerkraut and pork on New Years; bunny shaped bread and peanutbutter/coconut eggs for Easter; homemade hamburgers, potato salad and fruit salad for picnics. Cooking enough to ensure there are plenty of leftovers for everyone to take with them.
My cooking triumphs
I won a chile cook-off once amongst my co-workers. It was the only time I ever entered a cooking contest. I was very surprised.
My cooking tragedies
Jumbalaya in a slow cooker...the rice was a horrible texture. I'vealso tried making muffins out of a smoothie, wheat flour, eggs and baking powder. They were chewy.

Fluffy Peanut Butter Frosting
A go to peanut butter frosting. I whipped this by hand with a whisk. I used natural PB and the skinny marj was at room temp. Delish!

Easy Broccoli Quiche
i too refined this a bit. i used margarine to saute the veg. I sauted one small yellow onion-finely chopped, half a red pepper-finely chopped, 1 clove of garlic-minced and 2 cups of roughly chopped, thawed "frozen broccoli". I placed the crust in the pie pan, coated the bottom with shredded mozarella. then evenly spread in the sauted veg over the cheese. My egg mixture that I poured in last- 5 eggs, 1 cup milk and s&p to taste.

Vegetarian Chickpea Sandwich Filling
i used a handheld potato masher to mash the beans. i also used lite mayo... paprika, rather than dill, with some smokehouse blackpepper. Served with a warmed pita. My toddlers gobbled this up for lunch. Thanks for a quick and easy recipe!
