About this Cook
I really enjoy cooking, baking, and trying new recipes. I love the all recipes website as it's great for always finding a good recipe when I need one. I have many, many nice cook books and prefer the ones with lots of pictures. But, I love reading all of the reviewers comments and suggestions. They are sometimes better than a picture.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake and grew up in a home with extended family where both my grandmother and mother did a lot of baking from scratch and lots of time consuming cooking. My grandmother made huge loaves of bread without any kind of bread machine. It is truly an art. I follow her recipes and can make bread with the assistance of a Kitchen Aid Mixer.

Lana's Sweet and Sour Meatballs
Lana, your recipe is excellent. It's very easy to make. And it tastes great. The sauce is PERFECT.It's the best sweet and sour sauce I have ever had. Thanks so much for submitting your recipe. I used a small cookie ball scoop to measure my meatballs. Baking them on a sheet tray in the oven was a great idea because so much of the fat renders out. I'm never going to fry meatballs in a pan again. I'm sure this is NOT a low calorie recipe but eliminating some of the fat is a great idea. I prefer home made to store bought. Your sauce is a great one. I will never buy another bottled sweet and sour sauce. By the way, I followed your recipe exactly.

Zucchini Crustless Quiche
I thought this was very good. I made slight changes. I did not use a food processor at all. I used a standard box grater to shred the zucchini. I used two. I omitted the feta cheese because I didn't have any. I only used a half cup of flour because other reviewers had mentioned a floury taste. I also chopped up a few slices of deli ham and threw that in. I omitted the salt. I think this quiche would be very enjoyable at any time of day. I'm always looking for ways to add more vegetables and less meat to our diet. And I think this recipe is a big improvement over the standard "bacon and egg breakfast". I was very happy with this recipe. I think it's very easy to add what you may have on hand. It would also be great for brunch. Or, maybe bake this is a muffin pan for good grab and go breakfasts. It was easy to make, and easy on the budget. By the way, it browns nicely. Very presentable! Thanks so much for the recipe.

Homemade Chocolate Walnut Brownies
I've had brownies on my mind for a few days and was looking for a new recipe. This is an outstanding brownie recipe. I also baked mine in a 9"x13" glass baking dish for 30 minutes. I used salted butter. The batter was really thick and I was afraid they were going to be dry. But, they were PERFECT. Best brownies ever!
