I love to cook! My friends and family are the center of my world and I show my love and appreciation for them by showering them with baked goods!
My favorite things to cook
I'm 95% vegan so I love to experiment with existing recipes and veganize them. That other 5% is when I bake for other people.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Hands down - Christmas. My family has a very strong Norwegian heritage and it shines best at Christmas when we indulge in all the goodies I was raised on like krumkake, kringla, rommegrot, and of course lots of lefse.
My cooking triumphs
I have perfected the chocolate chip cookie. And I can make some amazing cupcakes.
My cooking tragedies
My first few adventures into stir fry had some really overcooked squash and very undercooked carrots. I've since figured out to add the veggies at different times.
