About this Cook
My name is Jennifer and I'm a married mom of 3. We have 2 silly little dogs, Boopie and Percy. We're vegetarians! Not eating any animal products has allowed me to be more adventurous with foods and I'm having a blast! I'm experimenting with raw foods and there are some wonderful recipes that really work! Giving my family plant based whole foods has become my passion and getting off of the S.A.D. (standard american diet) has been very empowering to us.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I grind my own wheat to make my bread. Sounds like a ton of work but it's really not and totally worth it!
My cooking triumphs
Anything that gets a "this is so good" from anyone is a triumph!
My cooking tragedies
Lots and lots. Almost every day I experience a tragedy on some level from spilling to burning, I've done it all.

Bread and Butter Pickles II
These came out really nice! I added the red peppers for color like suggested. I packed the jars with the veg first then added the liquid but I had to make more since there wasn't enough of the vinegar mix. I also did the water bath canning method (15 mins) just to be safe. I think I'll leave out the turmeric next time since it leaves a sediment at the bottom of the jars..not too pretty. I halved the recipe but made the full recipe of liquid and had to make more. After all of the adjustments I'll be sure to make these again.
