About this Cook
Mom of 3 boys. I love to cook. But because I am busy I like easy, flavorful dinner ideas. I am an experimenter and tend to change recipes. I think spices and herbs are a great way to add flavor to a dish without adding calories.
My favorite things to cook
Cookies, and warm, feel good foods. I love using a crockpot or dutch oven.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My husband and I love to eat out and try different foods and food preparations. We've had to cut back on eating out, but I still try to make "gourmet" type meals to satisfy our craving.

Banana Crumb Muffins
Only change I did was use plain yogurt in place of butter to make them a little healthier. I debated about adding the spices like many suggested. I do like warm spices. But I wanted to give this recipe a chance to stand on its own. I'm glad I did. These had a nice clean banana taste. And the topping added a nice slight crunch and sweetness.

Cashew Chicken with Water Chestnuts
Excellent recipe. Added fresh ginger and oyster sauce (2 T of soy sauce and 1 T of oyster) and fresh garlic for personal tastes. Also added 2 stalks of celery to up the veggies. Sprinkled green onion on top when served. Delicious!
