About this Cook
Growing up I wanted to be a famous chef. I ended up going to school for film/television. Silly.

Super Duper Zucchini Muffins
SO GOOD! I only made a couple slight changes to this. I didn't have shortening so I used margarine. I omitted the walnuts and added a shredded carrot as suggested by another reviewer. Also instead of sour milk I used greek yogurt. They took a little longer than 20 minutes to bake because I overfilled the cups. They taste amazing. Incredibly moist. I will definitely make these muffins again. I like that the recipe is easy to throw together in basically one bowl with one spoon without having to dig out the mixer.

Jo Jo's Favorite Banana Muffins
I made these using paper muffin cups and they stuck to the paper. Other than that they taste really good and smelled amazing while baking. I followed other reviewers advice and used yogurt in place of milk. I mashed Honey Strawberry Greek Yogurt in with the banana and cut the sugar down to 2/3 cup. Next time I will not use the paper cups.

Shepherd's Pie
This was quick and easy to make and really good. I used frozen mixed veggies (peas, carrots, corn & green beans), added some garlic and italian seasoning to the meat as it cooked, and melted some cheese on top at the end. It could have used more salt. It was the perfect amount for four people.
