About this Cook
I enjoy art, music, food, fashion, and pretty things. I enjoy reading, taking classes, and working in the community. I spend free time with friends and family. I believe sprinkles and kitties are true happiness :)
My favorite things to cook
I love cooking with fresh ingredients and herbs, especially those from my garden or the farmers market. My favorite meals to whip up are white chicken chili, roasted vegetables, hot wings, football fare, and anything seafood.

Best Chocolate Chip Cookies
These are by far the best and most consistent chocolate chip cookies. I followed another users suggestion and add 1/2 tsp of cream of tartar for the presentation of a cracked top. I also always add a tsp of almond extract. I have now made this recipe at least a half dozen times. Most recently, I kept the base of the recipe but substituted 1 cup of flour for 1 cup of oats and added white chocolate chips and craisins. The time before I added milk chocolate chips and toffee bits. When adding toffee you do have to cook at a lower temp and for less time as it causes the bottoms to burn. You really can't go wrong with this recipe and there are so many delicious variations you can make! Thank you for sharing!

Golden Yam Brownies
I made a few changes in lower the calories and increase the health benefits. I switched out 1/2 cup of butter for applesauce, used eight egg whites instead of 4 eggs, added 2 tablespoons of ground flax, 2 tablespoons of cocoa powder, 1 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp nutmeg, and 1/2 tsp ground ginger. I did not cook the yams, simply peeled and shredded them on my grater. I also did not add the glaze and they came out sweet enough! Next time I may follow another user's suggestion of adding raisins! Thank you for the fabulous recipe.
