About this Cook
I like to experiment with healthy foods! I'm not scared to try new or wierd flavors. Brownies with beans? Sure! Unfortunately, I'm still learning, and my creations sometimes don't turn out as expected, but no matter how many peices of toast I burn I'll keep on cooking!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake stuff! I love to watch a wet pile of goo turn into a beautiful cake, filling the house with its wonderful aroma. And who doesn't love to read a book with a homade cookie or muffin?
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was really little, whenever my dad made pizza, I would leave a handprint on the dough, so we called it "Baby Hands Pizza." Also, I always made sure to test the sugar before cooking with it. My testing method involved taking a spoonful of sugar and eating it straight, repeating the process a few times to make absolute sure that the sugar hadn't gone bad. I can proudly say that we never had to use un-tested suger!
My cooking triumphs
Finding a recipie for pumpkin-oatmeal muffins. Yum!
My cooking tragedies
First time making oatmeal. I didn't know it expanded as it cooked, so I put the oats and water in a regular bowl. The oatmeal soon flowed out of the bowl, leaving a big mess in the microwave.

Veggie Vegetarian Chili
I drained the beans and used canned fire-roasted diced tomatoes instead of plain. I also used the fire-roasted corn from Trader Joe's instead of canned corn. Came out great.

Healthy Pumpkin Cranberry Muffins
AMAZING!!! They were soft and moist, and so delicious. I substituted another 1/4 cup of dried cranberries instead of fresh, and it still came out well. Also, it only took me 20 minutes to bake.
