About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Soups and simple comfort foods. Oh yes...and cookies. I must have cookies!
My cooking triumphs
The fact that I actually cook and have kicked my fast-food and packaged frozen food habit! I didn't grow up helping out in the kitchen, so I'm thrilled to be slowly getting over my intimidation around cooking and feeling the satisfaction of enjoying and sharing home-cooked food.

No Bake Chocolate Oat Bars
I think I'm in love. I cut back a bit on the butter as suggested by others. I also used natural peanut butter and they're still fabulous! These are not going to last long.....

Banana and Black Bean Saute
This intrigued me, I had all the ingredients and gave it a try. My rating is closer to 3 1/2-4 stars. I used the entire can of coconut milk and the whole thing turned out very soupy and runny so I'll cut that back next time. I served over brown basmati rice and the dish kind of felt like a breakfast porridge. I liked the taste and may just eat it for breakfast!

Roasted Tomato Curry Soup
Loved it! I didn't have any saffron and added a pinch of turmeric like the previous reviewer. I also doubled it and even so, it didn't yield a lot.
