About this Cook
I am a graphic designer and I like to have variety in my eating life. The main person I cook for is my husband and I try to find recipes that will please both of us and that are pretty easy. I hardly ever follow a recipe word for word, I take them to give me ideas and techniques and make them my own.
My favorite things to cook
Mexican, italian, healthy.
My cooking triumphs
Recently I tried a mexican layer dip recipe for a party. Added and omited ingredients to make it my own and everyone loved it!
My cooking tragedies
I tend to overcook meat, because I fear getting sick with undercooked meat.

Delicious Raspberry Oatmeal Cookie Bars
Made this for my coworkers and they all loved it. I think I baked them too long, they only needed about 30 mins. I used whole wheat flour and a little less jam than called for. Next time I will use the full amount of jam.

Banana Banana Bread
Very tasty! I used 1 cup whole wheat flour with 1 cup AP flour, 3 bananas and made 2 mini loaves. They baked in 45 minutes.

Sarah's Banana Bread Muffins
Great recipe to make substitutions - I've used apple sauce instead of oil, splenda instead of sugar and half whole wheat flour, they turn out good each time.
