About this Cook
I live in Massachusetts and I'm a mother of 18 year old twins and a 17 year old. They're my three favorite people in the world (let's see if I feel this way in a few years)!
My favorite things to cook
If I had to choose between cooking and baking, then I'd pick baking. I think that's probably because I'll pick sugar over protein anyday.

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies
Embarrassingly simple, but so worth it. I make these all the time and add peanut butter chips (so gooooood). If you haven't tried them yet, give it a shot. If you don't like them, it's not as if you wasted a lot of time or money.

Ramen Coleslaw
Delicious! I took the advice of the rice wine vinegar but otherwise kept it as it was. I also used the Dole shredded cabbage. I do that with coleslaw too because of the time saver it is. The only thing I want to add is to the person giving a low rating because they weren't warned the noodles would get soft in the dressing...isn't that just plain ole' common sense. That pretty much goes for anything crunchy that gets added to a liquid dressing. If you don't prefer soggier noodles, bacon, etc., leave them out until right before serving.

Baked Whole Cauliflower
So I made this tonight for dinner and I have to say it was delicious. I think it could have been better if I didn't add extra breadcrumbs and extra everything. I was starving while I was preparing and of course thought, "gee, if 1/2 cup of breadcrumbs is good, then 1 whole cup will be better. WRONG! I had two other sides and I really should have followed the directions exactly and kept it more of a dusting. Don't get me wrong, it was delicious, but also too much. The taste of the cauliflower was lost because of it. I'll definitely make this again, only this time I'll try not to be so over the top with all the ingredients. Oh, I also steamed pieces as opposed to the whole head. Had to use just water with some salt, because I didn't have chicken stock. Thanks for the great recipe!
