About this Cook
I've been trying to find healthier versions of some "classic favorites." As runners, my boyfriend and I both love to eat, but as our metabolisms slow down we need to find healthy alternatives to our favorites (or add new favorites!). Our work schedules require us to travel 50%+, so we also need to watch what we eat on the road. It's a challenge!
My favorite things to cook
Baking desserts is my favorite, but we are trying to cut back on it for health reasons. Now I am focusing on new ways to prepare our favorite vegetables.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My boyfriend comes from a southern family, so he loves a big southern meal! (And I still can't compete with his grandma's cooking!) My family always had dinner at the kitchen table together - not in front of the tv. It's a small habit but one that I like to continue.

Ninety Minute Cinnamon Rolls
Tried it last night as my first attempt at cinnamon rolls! They came out great, my boyfriend loved them, and our apartment smelled wonderful :) I used a 9x13 Pyrex baking pan instead of muffin tins, and since I like thinner dough I rolled it out to a larger size and ended up with closer to 20 rolls. Loved 'em!
