Even though I work as a makeup artist, food has always been my first love. Ever since I can remember I've been in the kitchen. As a little girl I would beg my mom to let me help her cook (though now I know I was more of a nuisance than a help!). As an adult, I love cooking now more than ever.

Pineapple Chutney Chicken Salad

I made this recipe in desperation. I never knew it would be so good! Garnish with fresh parsley.

Whole Wheat Blueberry Scones

These whole wheat scones are good for you as well as yummy!

Slow Cooker Chicken

Spice up this succulent chicken dish by serving it atop egg noodles or rice!

Strawberry Orange Smoothie

This very simple and very yummy recipe is a great way to cool off!

Orange Cinnamon Toast

This is my great-grandmother's recipe for orange cinnamon toast. Warning: don't eat this if you're trying to eat really healthy. It's totally non-nutritious. Try playing around with the amounts of each ingredient to adjust this to your tastes.

Tomato and Lime Guacamole

Adjust the chili pepper and lime to the way you like it; this tasty and easy recipe is fairly mild.

Not-Lasting-for-Very-Long Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside, these spicy little cookies make wonderful Christmas presents. They use oil instead of butter and whole wheat flour instead of all-purpose flour to make them healthier.
