About this Cook
I am a baker at heart, but have been cooking more in recent years. After a year and a half of vegan eating I was diagnosed with another food intolerance. In addition to my dairy allergy, I discovered that I have fructose malabsorption, which severely limits my fruit and vegetable intake. :( For the last three months I have been on an elimination diet as I try to learn what foods I can eat safely. Through this process I have identified that soy makes me sick as well. To re-cap, no dairy, no soy, and VERY limited fruit and vegetable intake. Yikes! As a result of my latest diagnosis I have begun eating meat again and I must cook almost everything I eat. Avoiding soy and high fructose corn syrup pretty much means avoiding anything in a package. I'm trying to learn new ways to nourish my body without getting sick, while creating meals that my boyfriend and I both enjoy. Luckily, he is wonderfully supportive, willing to try most things and not super picky when it comes to food.
My favorite things to cook
brownies, cookies, cakes, soup
My favorite family cooking traditions
Some of my favorite memories from growing up occurred on Saturday mornings, sitting in the kitchen while listening to Motown as my dad made breakfast. He worked late during the week, so weekends were the only time he really got to cook for us. I still prefer a biscuit or muffin that he has made to any other.

Best Ever Blueberry Cobbler
I made this cobbler yesterday. It was my first cobbler, and I am pleased with how it came out. I added about 1/2 a cup more blueberries than called for because I wanted to use them all. I also added a few dashes of cinnamon and nutmeg to the berry mixture as other reviewers suggested. The cobbler was delicious, and my family went back for seconds (and thirds!). I baked the cobbler for 40 minutes, but when we ate it the middle of the crust seemed a little underdone, so I will cook it for 42 minutes or so next time I make this recipe.

Marinated Baked Pork Chops
This is good and the chops were moist. However, I found the sauce to be a little too sweet for my liking. Next time I will reduce the sugar.

Potato Latkes I
Yum! I didn't measure my potatoes, but I think I had about 3 cups. I used 2 eggs, extra onion and 3TBS white wheat flour. The latkes were great!
