About this Cook
I love to cook and wish I could cook for others and make a living at it!
My favorite things to cook
Stir fry veggies with meat, homemade bread, all desserts.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Enchiladas, soups, homemade bread from freshly milled grains, pies, cakes and cookies.
My cooking triumphs
I make everything from scratch, whether cooking or baking. I make our own bread from freshly milled grains. I always use fresh ingredients over canned or frozen as long as in season.
My cooking tragedies
I offered to make my neighbor bread since she was in a cast, and she wanted me to use her flour which was spelt, I think. The bread hardly rose and I gave it to her anyway. I was so embarrassed because normally my whole grain breads come out perfect.

Cranberry Apple Breakfast Muffins
What a simple delicious recipe! I, like others wanted a little more moisture, so I added 1/4 c. of spiced tea. I also added pecans because I like a little crunch in my muffins. These are perfect for any time and they go so well with a cup of tea. I made them in this beautiful rose muffin pan I just picked up at a craft fair. The next time I make them, I will dribble a sugar/milk glaze on top. Thank you Pitterpat of sharing this recipe.

One Bowl Brownies
I teach cooking classes to young children and teens. I have used this recipe for a few years. It's failsafe, simple and delicious. In honor of St. Patrick's Day, in class we swirled green cream cheese batter in the brownies to make them a marble green. We just omitted the box brownies and made our own from scratch using the above recipe. They were delish. However, the calorie content is greater with the addition.

Kale and Banana Smoothie
Absolutely delicious! I used Lacinato (Dino) Kale - the dark green variety. I also added half an apple. The smoothie has more calories than I like to consume at once, but it was worth it for the packed nutrition. It served as a meal for me. I have a Blendtec so I packed ice in it as well - the texture was perfect - cold, thick, sweet and very tasty. Thank you Rice for this recipe!
