Recently I was diagnosed with “very high” cholesterol and I am not ashamed to share my lipid panel numbers with you. My cholesterol total is 326 and the reference range is 125-200 mg/DL my HDL “good cholesterol” is 65 which is pretty good since it should be 46mg/DL or above, but my LDL “bad… MORE

About this Cook
I am a married 47 year old women with three grown children, 2 grandchildren who has returned to college after taking a 25 year break. I am finally going to get my degree and become a Registered Healthcare Information Technician (RHIT). My goal is to become an advocate for people to create Personal Health Records (PHR) for themselves in electronic format. I have always loved to cook from as long as I can remember. I would spend summers as a child on my Grammy's farm in Vermont and we would pick fresh vegetables from her beautiful garden, milk cows, collect eggs, and go fishing. She taught me how to make butter and she even had a mold with rose engraved in it. I just loved to unmolded the butter and look at the pretty rose. We made donuts from scratch and I so enjoyed cutting the donut dough but Grammy always dropped the donuts in the oil. This was how my admiration for farm fresh food was born thanks to my wonderful Grammy.
My favorite things to cook
Is anything with fresh ingredients. I am going through a Thai phase right now because I love the balance of flavors, sweet, salty, sour, and spicy. I have a kaffir lime tree and grow lemongrass, thai basil and galengel root (Thai Ginger)
My favorite family cooking traditions
I just love when the four generation of women which includes my mom, my self, my daughter and my 7 tr old grand daughter get together and cook for the entire family.
My cooking triumphs
The mmmmmm'sss I hear when someone is eating a dish that I have prepared. It makes me feel validated

Taiwanese Pork Chops
These are very good. The best advice I can give is to find a good quality five spice blend. They do vary in flavor. Your best bet is to purchase at an Asian Market. I had to try several before I found my winner. Five spice is now a staple in my pantry and goes fantastic with duck as well.

Pesto Sauce
Delicious and very easy. Walnuts are so good for you and full of Omega 3's. I think I will make another batch an freeze it in ice cube trays and then transfer into zip lock bags so I always have some on hand to use in a variety of dishes!

Fruit Oatmeal Cookie Bars
These are very tasty. I replaced the all purpose flour with whole wheat flour and used Polmars all fruit seedless blackberry preserves. I will make these again!
