So my husband went to the doctor and was advised that he needed to completely change his way of eating. I don't mind telling you that after working all day, we often ate fast food or quick fix meals which definitely equated to high-fat and high carbs. The highlight of my week was knowing for… MORE

About this Cook
All my cooking has been learning myself over the life of my marriage. I like to try new recipes as long as I can figure out what the ingredients are. I often like to tweak recipes to meet my likes and after I make a recipe a few times, I don't measure precisely.
My favorite things to cook
Of course I like to cook desserts, but I mostly have been trying out new low-fat and low-carb recipes for my husband.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother-in-law made the best homemade rolls. A pinch of this, a little more of that, etc. Unfortunately, I can never replicate her rolls no matter how much I try.
My cooking triumphs
Just recently I need a yellow cake mix. I made my very first cake from scratch. I only need half the cake mix for my Boston Cream Cheese Cake, so I made the rest into Coconut mandarin cupcakes with Orange butter cream frosting. Everything was delicious!
My cooking tragedies
I almost always burn the french bread when trying to make garlic bread. I also easily forget when I am barbecuing which often results in overcooking.

Thai Shrimp Burgers
These were quick to make and tasty. They had some trouble remaining in tact as a burger, but that is probably due to the fact we didn't refridgerate as directed. We put them on 100% wheat Greek Pita Flatbread which was delicious! A little more veggies like some fresh spinach and slices of onion and maybe tomato would've improved it a bit.

Thai Pork Satay
Marinated in a foodsaver bag for several days in the marinating ingredients. The chestnuts were hard to skewer. I didn't have a red pepper, so I only used a green pepper. There was not enough marinade to heat up, so I made the marinade again, minus the green onions. It had good flavor. We ate it with some leftover Thai Noodle that we made the night before (recipe found on allrecipes.com).

Chicken Penne with Asparagus, Sun-dried Tomatoes, and Artichoke Hearts
It seemed like it would have all the ingredients for a tasty dish, but lacked a little extra something-spice. We cut up chicken the night before (when we had too much for another receipe). We seasoned it with basil, garlic pepper and onion powder. We then vacuum sealed it overnight. We followed the rest of the recipe except the cooking times- I didn't want my asparagus overcooked and mushy, so I didn't cook it as long. To add some additional flavor we also added some feta cheese.
