About this Cook
I work in natural foods and my passions are cooking and nutrition. I'm married to a wonderful man and we are the doting parents of two pug dogs. I'm a major foodie, but when I'm not cooking, eating or thinking about food, I enjoy photography, reading and exercising.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake sweets, but I also like to cook healthy. I mostly enjoy making simple, uncomplicated recipes with fresh ingredients. Banana bread, salmon and salads are favorites in this house.
My cooking triumphs
I have a cooking and recipe blog called "Delicious As It Looks" (www.deliciousasitlooks.com). I hope to see you there!

Boardwalk Quality Maple Walnut Fudge
Very good fudge! And it couldn't be easier to make. I just melted it over low heat on the stovetop while stirring constantly. Worked great!

Ghirardelli(R) Dark Chocolate Truffles
I absolutely love dark chocolate, so I knew I would love these truffles. They have an amazing smooth texture that just melts in your mouth. My chocolate was pretty hard when it came out of the fridge, so I let it warm up a bit on the counter before forming into balls. The warmth of your hands help to shape the balls as well. I rolled mine in cocoa, coconut and Valentine's sprinkles. The coconut is my favorite.

Chicken Salad with Bacon, Lettuce, and Tomato
I really like this salad. It makes a wonderful low-carb lunch. I used uncured turkey bacon and canned chicken (a little salty, but so easy). I chopped up some avocado and just threw them in the salad. I also added some sunflower nuts. I will be making this again!
