About this Cook
RN, homeschooling mama, health nut, involved in community garden and promoting local food. I've loved to cook since my grandma taught me to bake when I was 7 years old.
My favorite things to cook
Fresh local meats and veggies, especially love Italian and Indian dishes. I have chickens in my backyard because I love fresh eggs! I try to balance my cooking between keeping my family healthy, and making to-die-for goodies. I'm a cookie connoisseur.

Easy Whole Wheat Bread
This is a very good everyday bread recipe! I've made it four times in the past week and it has turned out perfect every time. I have stopped buying grocery store bread because of all the additives, this recipe is so simple I know it by heart already. It's easy to throw the ingredients in the bread machine and go about my day without much time or effort. The size is perfect for getting sandwich-size slices for my kids, and they love it toasted with butter too! The small loaf also requires I make a fresh loaf almost daily, which my family appreciates. This will be my go-to daily bread recipe from now on.

Homemade Mac and Cheese
The consistency was fine, but the cheese sauce was bland. I would double the amount of cheddar if I ever decided to make it again, and add some more spices. I also used whole wheat elbows to try to make this a little healthier, and it ended up tasting like cardboard soaked in flour and milk. May try it again someday with a few variations.

Chocolate Rum Balls I
This was the worst thing I have ever made, and this is the only one star bad review I have ever written. I was leary when I saw the vanilla wafers as an ingredient because I don't like using processed foods, but they got such great reviews and I wanted an easy chocolatey-rummy ball for the Christmas party. I like the taste of rum, but these came out tasting like rum flavored dough. Not sure what the problem was because all those positive reviewers can't be wrong.
