  1. I am all but a beginner with baking, and this was an easy recipe. This was a pretty good cake. I liked the tang of the orange. I used plain nonfat yogurt because that's what I had. Because I didn't have blueberries, I substituted 1 1/2 c. frozen whole cherries for the blueberries. This worked pretty well, and the cake baked up nicely.
  2. This was highly enjoyable. I didn't have any plain yoghurt on hand so used low-fat yoghurt with honey. Seemed to work OK. Made a nice big cake, so in theory it SHOULD last a couple of days, probably not though, it is too good to last too long.


I work as a part-time nurse in our city's burn unit. In my spare time, I really enjoy browsing cookbooks, cooking magazines, and the web for recipes. I am always looking for new ways to combine common ingredients to mix things up a bit. I try to avoid recipes that call for bizarre or hard-to-get ingredients or require a special kitchen widget I will only use once. If someone were to give me something unusual, I certainly would give it a try! However, my husband and I are adventurous diners and are always willing to try something new at least twice (in case there was a problem the first time!) We enjoy everything from German to Japanese; we want to try Vietnamese next. My husband and I own a Gold Wing motorcycle and love to travel in the warmer months. We also have three dogs: Roxy, who is a rather large (42 lb.) fox terrier cross (shown above, with me!), Shadow, who is pure-bred reverse-brindle boxer, and Maggie, a brindle boxer. They love it when "Mom" cooks because they know something yummy inevitably hits the floor!
