About this Cook
I am a young mother that loved cooking growing up, but rarely ever did it. I really began to exercise my fingers in the kitchen when I went to college and even more once I got married. One of my favorite things is to set a plate in front of someone and have them comment on the appearance- then after they taste it, have the appearance totally forgotten.
My favorite things to cook
Low-fat foods that are so flavorful that they still satisfy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grew up with a few special things. My mom cooked dinner everyday- so it was something I very much expected to do when I grew up, but the favs are Homemade taffy pulling at christmas and cinnamon pull-apparts (monkey bready) twice a year on special mornings.
My cooking triumphs
My goal in cooking is just to make something edible- it helps me not be disappointed and gives me courage to try new things. I have a grandmother who is the most amazing cooks I know. Last summer I made a peach pie at their home, and she recently thanked me for the recipe and said she uses it often.
My cooking tragedies
We had company over for an anual ukrainian barbeque and I tried to make a chicken dish- even after letting it cook a long time the inside was still pink when I served it.

Banana Blueberry Muffins
Amazing! Followed the recipe exactly, only using two whole eggs instead of egg whites. They were much more like regular muffins than I expected. They are very moist. I would take them out of the tin and on to drying rack to avoid them getting soggy. Great way to get nutrition. If you want sweet delicate muffins, this isn't the right recipe- but if you are looking for a way to have a muffin you can enjoy every morsel of and have no guilt eating a second one. Make these daily!!!
