About this Cook
I have been a pescatarian for 10 years, which means that I am vegetarian, except for eating FISH and seafood. I cook for 2 most of the time and like healthy, easy, economical dishes that don't require obscure ingredients or complicated machinery. I like to cook with seasonal fruits and vegetables from the local farmer's market that I go to every Saturday. I go camping a lot and do lots of campfire cooking with freshly caught fish and local produce.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook from the earth and the cupboard. I don't like recipes that require any fancy equipment like food processors or pasta machines. I enjoy economical food like those prepared with dried lentils, canned chickpeas, etc. I like low saturated fat foods for desserts and snacking.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I like to eat and cook locally grown foods with a splash of character. I use a lot of spices, but avoid overly-pungent flavors.

Delightful Apple Spice Muffins
I followed the suggestions of other reviews and used all brown sugar, real butter, and half whole wheat flour. My husband requested that these have a streusel topping like coffee cake and it was a great idea and turned out well! For streusel: Mix 2 TBSP flour, 1/3 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, and cut in 2 TBSP of butter. Sprinkle the mixture over each muffin before baking. Next time I will bake mine for one minute less as I have a hot oven.

E-Z Drop Biscuits
I added the cheese and they were great! So easy and quick. It's nice it only dirties up one bowl too. I will definitely make these again!

Shortbread Cookies II
This actually makes several dozen cookies. Don't forget they don't rise like sugar cookies so roll them as thick as you want the cookie to be. I was able to roll them out and use cookie cutters with no problem. I love recipes that only have a few ingredients like this! I got lots of compliments on the cookies and I think they were my favorite tasting shortbread cookies ever. A definite keeper!
