About this Cook
I live in St. Paul, MN with my husband, our two dogs, cat, bird, spider, and fish. We have a big vegetable garden that we try to get most of our vegetables from (instead of the store).
My favorite things to cook
I like cooking with the fresh veggies and herbs that come from my garden. I like to cook healthy meals. I also like to revamp recipes to make them healthier but I can't resist a good dessert!
My favorite family cooking traditions
I love to get together with my friends, make cookies and decorate them for halloween or christmas (or whatever holiday is coming up).
My cooking triumphs
If other people really like the food I cook then I consider it a triumph.
My cooking tragedies
Recently I made the Absolute Mexican Cornbread from this site and it didn't turn out so well. Usually it's a huge hit. Turns out I forgot to add the eggs. oops

Felix K.'s 'Don't even try to say these aren't the best you've ever eaten, because they are' Chocolate Chip Cookies
I have used the same chocolate chip cookie recipe FOREVER. I saw this and decided to try it. I made a half batch of this and a half batch of the old. The 'old' recipe isn't even done baking but the new is and I think I have a winner. These cookies are sooooo good! and they hold up really well. Easy to take to work, school, etc to share w/others. Don't break apart or stick to the baking sheet. Wow! I think I may be using this recipe from now on! Thanks!!! I'll have my husband and a few others do a side by side comparison to see which they like better but I have a feeling it will be this one!

Joey's Peanut Butter Cookies
Really good! I used natural peanut butter and it was a bit dry so I added a little extra oil to soften it up a bit and make it more creamy. I will definitely make these again. I also added some extra sugar because of using natural PB.

Eggplant Burgers
wow..super good. My husband made these tonight and they were very tasty. We have eggplant in our garden and have been trying to come up with new ways to use them. This recipe was definitely a hit. I was a little unsure when he said he was making eggplant burgers but they were very good and healthy! We topped them with fried onion, garlic mayo, heirloom tomato, lettuce, and poblano peppers. Based on the other reviews he microwaved them for less time than the recipe stated.
