About this Cook
I am the working Mom of 3 kids ages 8.5 and 6.5 year old twins. I work as a Nurse in a Family Practice clinic and volunteer at my kids school. When time allows I like to experiment in the kitchen and dream up new recipes. I love allrecipes since it allows me to combine a whole bunch of well respected recipes and see what I end up with. I love Iron Chef because they create the oddest ideas of of the most basic or crazy ingredients!
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake, brine, pickle, and experiment with any great new idea or recipe ingredient. I make my own stock and find it is always such a nice touch to adding flavor to a recipe. Often it is just what is needed to make a recipe shine!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Iam from a Northern European family. On Christmas morning we eat Crub, a huge ball of potato with a bacon treat in the middle. My kids like it, my husband loves to call it crud! It is the most basic idea but reminds me of my Grandfather and being a little girl. Now it is time to create some of our own family traditions.
My cooking tragedies
I have a hard time with roasts, always have. I just cannot get my timing right. I leave those to my husband since he is the master of the grill.

Eggplant Bake
Oh my gosh! This is the best thing I have eaten in ages. All 3 kids devoured it. Broke my heart their were no left overs. I did not have feta so I used some fresh mozzarella. My only bread crumbs on hand where panko-I think they may have worked better because they stayed really crunchy. It probably is just as good the way it is written though.
