About this Cook
I am a newer cook and even newer to healthy cooking! I used to love to cook a lot of sweet and savory meals but have within the last year learned how to cook some delicous meals with out all of the calories. Due to my new found love for healthy cooking and a lot of hard work, my husband has lost 75 lbs and I have lost 35 lbs in just 9 months! My husband says that eating my meals make dieting easy :)
My favorite things to cook
I love filling lettuce or cabbage wraps with delicious ingredients also I am a huge fan of making chicken chilli and soups. My favorite part of any meal is the vegetables though!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Thanksgiving dinner cooking with my mom, her homeade sausage stuffing is something I will always remember making and eating!
My cooking triumphs
Cooking the perfect beef stew for my mother in law.
My cooking tragedies
The first time I tried to used my new edgeless brownie pan, each brownie ended up rock solid! They were supposed to be a gift for our new neighbors but instead were replaced with a bottle of red wine!

Cranberry Sauce
I love cranberry sauce and I paired this with a turkey loaf for dinner, because my husband and myself are concerned with healthy eating, I used Trop 50 orange juice and replaced the sugar with Truvia (a natural sugar substitute) When using a sweetner cut the amount in half, I used a little less than 1/2 cup of Truvia. This came out perfect!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup
I am so happy with this soup! I will continue to make it all winter long! It had the perfect consistancy, creamy not too thick not too thin. I used skim milk and lite butter to cut out some fat. I also added carrots and broccoli, parsley and thyme. I can not say enough about this soup, by far the best potato soup I have ever eaten.

Veggie Pizza
I absolutely love this recipe it is the perfect appetizer all year round but especcially in the summer. I like to use whipped chive cream cheese instead of plain it adds a ton of flaver and makes the topping light and fluffy.
