About this Cook
I am a mom of 2 little boys and am constantly trying out new recipes that introduce my family to healthy living and an abundance of taste diversity. Trying to keep myself strong and fit as 40 approaches is another reason I love all recipes!
My favorite things to cook
Baked goods, quick and easy but healthy main meals, kid friendly recipes and "wow" meals.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pumpkin french toast every weekend!
My cooking triumphs
Finding recipes that get my kids to eat MORE vegetables!
My cooking tragedies
Making gorgeous meals that my hubbie and I enjoy but my 2 or 4 year old son declares, "I am not a fan of this!"

White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies IV
I made these vegan for my son who is egg and dairy intolerant. I subbed Earth Balance Margarine for the butter and egg replacer (EnerG) for the egg. I also followed the advice of others and used half the amount of nuts and white chocolate chips and the result was super!
