About this Cook
I have always been a comfort food junkie, but since my husband has been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and I had a knee replacement I am interested in healthy recipes that still satisfy his need for rich tasting food.
My favorite things to cook
Lately, baked chicken tenders, swai fish fillets and low fat, sugar free pumpkin pie.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Eastern European! Lots of potatoes, cabbage and pork.
My cooking triumphs
My low fat sugar free pumpkin cheesecake and a really great meatloaf using eggplant as a filler
My cooking tragedies
bread, bread, bread. I always burn whatever type I try to serve with our holiday meals.

Pumpkin Cheesecake I
I also have a diabetic husband, so I used fat-free creamcheese and Ideal sweetener. I also added 1/2 cup of greek yogurt and baked it in a water bath to reduce cracking because of the low fat. It was creamy and yummy and the calories are reduced to about 110 per servingg!
