About this Cook
My mom loves to cook and passed it on to me. I'm not so great at baking, but I'm trying to learn!
My favorite things to cook
Anything new, especially fish. I love trying out new gravies and sauces, too.

Delicious Pumpkin Bread
This came out great. I cut the recipe by 2/3 and only made one loaf at a time, but I've now made 2 and we keep eating them so fast, I may make more and freeze them next time. Instead of oil, I went with applesauce as others mentioned and I threw in a couple teaspoons of vanilla. I added 2 tablespoons of flax meal for some extra nutrition, too.

Lamb Chops with Balsamic Reduction
I omitted the butter by accident, so that may have helped temper the vinegar in the sauce. I'll follow more carefully next time. Otherwise, this came out very nicely. Preparing the sauce gives the meat time to rest, which was great. I served it with sauteed eggplant and couscous.

Flax and Sunflower Seed Bread
I substituted all-purpose flour and it came out great. I needed to add a little more all-purpose flour while the machine was kneading. The bread came out fluffy and incredibly tasty.
