Love To Cook! Born to Learn!
About this Cook
I live in a beautiful N. Calif (coastal) town called McKinleyville. I live with my husband, our daughter (last child of 4)and our beagles. I work in the healthcare industry as an office manager.
My favorite things to cook
I'll try anything. I love cooking Thai and Italian...But I'll always try to make something new no matter what part of the world it is from.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Having relaxing holiday meals. I hate that it takes nearly all day to make a feast then only 20 minutes to eat it!!! So I like to have a relaxing day of snacks and wine and then have a casual dinner.
My cooking triumphs
Anything that comes out tasting good is a triumph for any cook...
My cooking tragedies
I try to block these from my mind...Think only HAPPY and SUCCESSFUL thoughts while cooking!

Mom's Zucchini Bread
I just got done with this recipe. TOO SWEET for me. It's more like CAKE then it is BREAD. I did alter the ingredients. I used COCONUT oil instead of veg. oil and I used ORGANIC wherever possible in the recipe. Disappointed!! However, recipe yields: 36 mini muffins & 12 reg. sized muffins -OR- 8 mini loaves and 1 reg. sized loaf from ONE batch of ingredients.

Banana Banana Bread
I altered this recipe just a little. I added 1 cinnamon, 1/2 tsp of all-spice and 2 1/2 Cups of banana's. I just can't make bread like this without spices. The bread turned out super moist and very tasty!
