About this Cook
I'm a wife of almost 6 years, a stay at home mom to two boys, ages 5 and 2, and one little girl who is 9 months old.
My favorite things to cook
I'm a baker and my husband's a 'cooker'. I love to make anything that allows me to use my kitchenaid & other 'tools' of the kitchen. I also like to make any pasta dishes & Mexican.

Mini Pumpkin Butterscotch Muffins
Just made these and the kids LOVE them (8, 6 & 4). My 6 year old said, "When I grow up, will you give me the recipe so I can make these for my kids?" Made them as the recipe said, but added a Tablespoon of lecithin and chia seeds for some added nutrition. Next time I make these, I will add a dollup of yogurt to the batter.

Banana-Zucchini Bread
I guess it's strange to rate this 5 stars when I made so many changes- but it was delicious! I used 4 very ripe bananas, about a 1/2 cup more zucchini, a small handful of freshly ground flax, I added applesauce to make it 1/2 veg oil & 1/2 applesauce... I added about a tablespoon of lecithin for extra nutrition and about 2 Tablespoons of dutch cocoa. Oh, and I omitted 1/2 of the white sugar, because I decided to make a quick butter/sugar/crumb topping before baking. I made them into muffins instead, since I have 6, 4 & 2 year olds & figured they'd rather have "their OWN" muffin than just a slice of bread. I was right! They are SO good and there is no sign of them "tasting" healthy. The kids inhaled them, and 2 of my kids are extremely picky eaters. UPDATE 9/10/09: I just made another batch of muffins. This time I used 5 bananas & almost 2 cups zucchini... they came out perfectly at 20 min, sooo moist & delicious!

Amish Cookies
This is an amazing "sugar cookie" recipe! I'm not proud of it, but I'm a huge cookie dough eater and this one is SO good. It stays soft enough to scoop after refrigeration, making it perfect to cook a quick batch, or eat a spoonful! hehe. And it always gets tons of compliments!
