About this Cook
I live with my b/f and my young daughter. I enjoy cooking all kinds of foods and love trying new recipes.
My favorite things to cook
Well since we recently started eating ultra heathy, I have had to forego cooking my favorite stuff. So right now, I'm cooking up healthy foods that still taste good but are very low in fat and calories.
My cooking triumphs
Roasting the perfect chicken on my first try! Having my first attempt at home made cheesecake come out perfect!
My cooking tragedies
Making a shrimp pasta dish...and not realizing the frozen shrimp were not pre-cooked! OOPS!

Pecan Pie V
Holy moly! I will never make a corn syrup pecan pie EVER again. Where has this recipe been all my life? Super easy and quick to throw together and the results were a perfectly amazing pecan pie. Threw butterscotch chips on top of the crust before pouring the batter, at my husband's request, and that worked perfectly. Seriously, this is the best pecan pie recipe ever. When using the normal corn syrup way, I always have issues with it setting up and it is always way sweet, like candy. But this came out beautiful. Made it's own nice crusty top and the inside set up wonderfully, and the sweetness was perfect. Like a pie and not like candy. You MUST try this.

White Cheese Chicken Lasagna
To be fair, I made this recipe as written, except using only 1 package of spinach, b/c I did not pay close enough attention to the fact that it calls for 2. When it came to assembling this, I mixed the ricotta, spinach and chicken together, to make it easier. This recipe is extremely good. I did use fat free milk and part skim cheeses, and you couldn't tell. It is still divine and delicious. The only complaint we had was, we felt it could use more salt and more garlic, so the next time I make this, I will add a lot more fresh garlic and extra salt. This was even better the next day.

The Best Lemon Bars
These are SO good. So so good! Not to mention, SO easy to make! I used the juice of 2 very large lemons, and found that I would prefer a little more lemon flavor. My husband and family agreed that they would like it more tart and less sweet. My husband also said he would prefer a thinner crust. So, while the recipe as is is absolutely delish, next time I am going to add the juice of atleast 3 or 4 lemons, and reduce the amount of crust!
