About this Cook
I'm a stay at home mom who likes to cook with my kids. I'm always looking for something fun to make for dinner! Low fat, low sugar healthy dishes are always on our minds.
My favorite things to cook
Homemade bread (no machines!), dishes with interesting spices, especially Asian and Indian.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Homemade tortillas with the whole family
My cooking triumphs
My daughter's first birthday when everyone thought that we had the meal catered.
My cooking tragedies
Dropping a cheesecake and breaking an heirloom dish at the same time. We all cried over both.

Sweet and Silky Strawberry Sorbet
Too sweet for my taste. My strawberries probably could have been riper. My husband thought it tasted like frozen strawberry smoothie. It just wasn't that special.

Easy Apple Coleslaw
I've made this several times and it is delicious! It doesn't keep, even over night, but that's usually not a problem because it gets gobbled up. I've also substituted fat free mayo and reduced the amount of sugar but it is best with the original recipe.

Glazed Orange Spice Cookies
This cookie got raves from my family and friends. The orange flavor, crispy/chewy texture, and tangy frosting make it a great addition to my repertoire.
