About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
I try to make healthy recipes, recipes that will stick and not have you feeling hungry an hour later. However I have a terrible sweet tooth, so I love cooking cakes and pies and other delights.

Pork-n-Beans Cake
This cake was very moist. I did as others suggested and used applesauce instead of vegetable oil. I also used 1 and 1/3 cup sugar instead of 2 cups. I love raisins so I added slightly more then the optional amount. I also mashed the baked beans with a wooden spoon in a separate bowl (as best as I could) before adding them to the mixture. My work colleagues and friends had no idea that baked beans were an ingredient! They truly enjoyed the recipe, and so did I. Also I used part of the batter to make muffin-cakes (huge hit) and the other part I put into mini loaf pans. I cooked them each for 25min, then when that time was up I did the toothpick test and proceeded accordingly. In my non-convection oven they both cooked for about 30 min. I fill my mini loaf pans about 3/4 of the way to get a baked result that is slightly under the top of the pan. Thanks for this recipe, I will be making it again!

Sweet Potato-Turkey Meatloaf
The ketchup, dijon mustard, bbq sauce I mixed in a separate bowl, adding half to the meat and half spread on top. It worked well, although next time I might make more of it because I actually found the meatloaf itself kind of bland. I used oatmeal instead of wheat bread, which in my opinion doesn't cause it to have a weird consistency or cause it to easily fall apart. If you don't have honey bbq sauce, which I didn't, you could mix plain bbq sauce and honey which works and tastes great. I actually wish there had been extra of that bbq/ketchup/dijon mixture because it would have worked nicely on other meat dishes. Thanks for this recipe.

Amazing Butternut Squash
This was pretty good. I'm sure others might find the flavor combination a hit and interesting. I added brown sugar to it when I was eating the dish, which helped it for me. Also, perhaps doubling the cracker mix so that it covered more of the surface might have helped, then I might not have needed the extra brown sugar.
