About this Cook
I have 2 children and try to cook the majority of our food from scratch as I don't like to eat alot of processed foods. I would much rather them eat homeade food & treats. I lost 85 lbs 5 years ago and have learned that the healthy way of eating are best for my family.
My favorite things to cook
We are bread eaters, and sweets here. Love side dishes that are not a potato also....Love trying new things and love to cook actually anything!
My cooking triumphs
I have been working on my low fat pie crust, and made some baking powder bisquits one time that were unbelievable! Pita bread that turned out awesome.
My cooking tragedies
Too many to count...I don't try to have over expectations that way I can't be overly disappointed. Sometimes the tragedy is more in the fact that I loved the dish but no one else did!

Almost No Fat Banana Bread
Excellent if you love Banana Bread, but hate all that old fatty stuff that is in the old fashioned kind! I used 1/2 whole wheat pastry and 1/2 white flour, only 1/2 cup sugar and did 1/4 of that brown. I used 3 bananas, dash of salt, dash of vanilla & nutmeg and it was awesome!!
