About this Cook
I love to experiment & duplicate my favorite restaurant dishes on my own...or create new recipes using the ingredients I have on hand. It is an enjoyable challenge to create or change a recipe healthily and still yummy without changing the whole character of the dish. Also, creating recipes for those who have allergies to specific ingredients like: wheat, eggs, milk, is a hobby to me because I want everyone to be able to enjoy my dish and to brighten everyones day. I know how it is to really want to enjoy or crave something and not be able to have it because of just one ingredient.
My favorite things to cook
My grandma's oatmeal bars...the best thing on the planet and has a little bit of healthiness in them! ;-)
My cooking triumphs
I made a angel food cake wheat-free with rice & tapioca flour for my mom (who is allergic to all wheat flour) and it came out amazing!
My cooking tragedies
Let's just say I'm still learning Asian style cooking...and I love it despite my attempts.

Chocolate Chip Cookies (Gluten Free)
These are great cookies if you do as other reviewers have suggested. Half or quarter the salt (1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt), eliminate the white sugar, and add 2 more cups of gluten free mix to thicken the batter and your batter will be perfect and really tasty. Otherwise it is too salty and your cookie melts to an 1/8 in and 5-6inches wide. Hope this helps!

Carob Cake And Frosting
WOW! This is an AmAzInG cake. So moist and really chocolaty! It is the best warm, but cool is great too. Thank you for your recipe! I haven't been able to eat chocolate, because I can't take the caffein in chocolate, so this was heavenly to me. I did not add any water in the icing and it turned out thicker like a regular frosting and added dry Hazelnut creamer with the dry milk to add flavor. Though the Carob cake doesn't really need the sweet icing, it's great by itself! Thank you again!
