About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I've always thought that I preferred baking over cooking but have recently been making dinner for friends and people who drop in for dinner and have found that I really enjoy cooking too! I'm mostly vegetarian as my stomach can't digest meat very well but I'll cook meat for other people with no problem. I enjoy searching for low fat/low calorie recipes but rarely find any that are absolutely delicious, although I've stumbled across a few.
My favorite family cooking traditions
For christmas I've always made mexican wedding cookies, chocolate and peanut butter fudge, sock-it-to-me cake, and crackle top ginger cookies using my great grandmothers recipes. Usually my mother and I get together and have a baking marathon that lasts an entire day. Although sweet potato casserole is a fairly common thanksgiving tradition, the dish reminds me of the holiday when I was little and therefore will always have a special place in my stomach.
My cooking triumphs
Most recently: Delicious Tuna Casserole and a Mediterranean salad with homemade red vine raspberry and strawberry vinaigrette dressing
My cooking tragedies
Most Recently: Vegan Oatmeal Cookies (that bounced)

Blueberry Sauce
This is an awesome recipe! I used stevia in the raw instead of sugar, added a few more blueberries and used fresh squeezed orange juice. I've been looking for a good recipe for healthy blueberry sauce and this is it! I poured it over my fat free blueberry orange cake and some frozen yogurt, talk about healthy and delicious!

Chocolate Peanut Butter Fudge
This fudge recipe is fantastic. I like peanut butter but am not a total nut fanatic so the amount of peanut butter suggested was perfect. I followed the recipe exactly, stirring almost constantly for about 7.5 minutes after reducing the heat after attaining a rolling boil. My fudge is delicious, smooth, not grainy in the least! I used fat free evaporated milk and the results were lower fat and calorie than it's full fat counter part would have been. Ten points for a recipe that's easy, accurate, and tasty!

Pumpkin Fudge
This unique fudge recipe gets five stars and two thumbs up! It was not difficult to make, no modifications were needed and although I plan on going for a long run after I finish typing this review due to the ridiculous amount of calories in the confection, the taste and texture were absolutely spot on! If you follow the directions exactly, stirring about once every minute, this fudge is no fail delicious!
