About this Cook
I have never been a big fan of cooking- I was never really taught how to and the only time I was ever in the kitchen was to help with baking chocolate chip cookies with my Mom. I really enjoy baking when I find the time. Every once in a while I find myself in a two week frenzy of cooking- for some reason I am inspired to try a new recipe each day of the week. Once the frenzy is over, I won't step foot in the kitchen for a while. Luckily I was blessed with a husband who likes to cook. That all went in changed when he was accepted to grad school and now has no time to cook. Add to that a newborn and I'm surprised we eat at all (thank God for Trader Joe's prepared meals!). We are starting to get the hang of our chaotic life and cooking is back in. It's all about quick, easy and healthy.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake pies and cookies. It's been a while for both since my household always seems to be on a diet or trying to eat a little healthier.
My cooking triumphs
Developing 30 meals that are roated throughout the month so I never have to come up with something on the spot each night.

Pumpkin Gingerbread
I love, love, love this bread. I didn't change a thing and it came out perfectly. I made full loaves, min loaves and muffins for holiday gifts and received so many compliments. My husband and three year old also can't get enough. So yummy and the house smelled delicious while the bread was baking. This is definitely a keeper.

Make Ahead Lunch Wraps
This is a great recipe for a healthy, quick meal. Like other reviewers I tweaked it a bit- I first cooked some onion to add some flavor and threw in cumin as well. They are never exactly the same each time I make them. I throw in all sorts of things and different amounts of each-based on what's on hand- and they always come out great. Often times I get more than 8 wraps and they freeze great.

Lighter Banana Muffins
I liked the recommendations from Flooeyblue, so I followed her additions/ modifications to the recipe. I really like these! I was trying to find some breakfast receipes for my banana-loving 16 month old and these are perfect. I give four stars because of all of the changes to the recipe, but I since I am not an adventurous baker/ cook, I love seeing how others modify recipes.
