I believe in the philosiphy of "Eat Right for Your Type";, where you eat according to your blood type. Being a type A and my husband is a type O, I try to mix up our meals. I try to eliminate bread (unless spelt bread) from our diets, a favorite dinner out is sushi at a local sushi restaurant nearby. I enjoy hiking with my dog, Bella and gardening when I can (unless we have snow), love spending time with my kids (grown and college age) and my husband. I hope my children develop my love of cooking someday, I try to nudge them along the way with gifts of cooking items on birthdays!

I like homemade soups, and I make a lot of soup all year long. I have a VitaMix and it is my favorite kitchen appliance! I like salads and yummy wasabi dressings, lime vinagarettes, and my homemade thousand island dressing my mom taught me how to make. I have an old recipe handed down from my grandma, it is a hearty moist Pumpkin Bread, that I make for everyone, even my local sushi chef!

Chocolate is a weakness of mine, good German or Swiss chocolate-- I love baked goods and I give goodie baskets out to varous people during the holidays of my baked goodies.

I love a good bottle of Zinfandel, too... or some Merlot, or Malbec.

Chinese Hot and Sour Soup

Chinese Hot and Sour Soup

very spicy. I added some extra veggies: a carrot that I used a vegetable peeler to peel long slices, 1/2 of a bell pepper, thinly sliced, a 1/2 of an onion, thinly sliced. I think I may have put too many veggies for the broth it was REALLY THICK. I might adjust the corn starch/water ratio down to about 3 T of each next time. I needed to add salt, it just didn't have the salty flavor I like. I also added shrimp and omitted the pork. I may only do 2 eggs next time as well. Overall it was a hearty, yummy soup. 2/12/2014
Banana Coffeecake Muffins

Banana Coffeecake Muffins

Bake at 375. I used leftover coffee to add moisture. I've never had a problem getting them out of the pan and they have never been crumbly. ALL my family request these often!! I think if you just add more cold coffee to them they will never be dry — Robilin 2/24/2013

Massaged Kale Salad

it got too salty so then I had to keep doctoring it up. I like the IDEA of this salad better than how it actually turned out. — kayelem 12/1/2012

this recipe was given to me at a Bunco party and I found it hard to believe the ingredients would actually make cookies. They turned out ok... really sweet. — Robilin 3/29/2012

Arugula Pesto

Arugula Pesto

I love the idea of making a pesto with something other than basil, which is hard to find in the winter months. This recipe is my "go to" for pesto, thank you! 12/14/2011

this was good, but a little on the dry side. I had to puree some cilantro stems, lime juice, a roasted pepper and some garlic for it to "juice" up. — ssarasup 9/19/2011

I just made this again, and I used a tofu salad dressing (that I had pre-made from my vita-mix cookbook) for most of the "dressing" It was again, so amazing! — Robilin 9/15/2011
