Puffy Apple Pancake
Avery helping with dinner
About this Cook
I am a single parent and I find cooking meals to be a great way to spend time at home, relax, and enjoy my time off of work with my toddler. She is special needs with eating/sensory issues so much of my meal choices these days cater to what I think she might eat and is healthy. She is a big fan of red sauce, pasta, quesadillas, and pizza. So the recipes I try often are variations of these themes. I also like to bake because nothing beats a home made dessert, and people love you when you bring sugar or chocolate over.
My favorite things to cook
I love to chop veggies. I find it theraputic. Also anything with chocolate.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Being a young parent I am working on creating my own traditions with my daughter, like making special breakfasts on holidays, and finding recipes to make my "own." But I also cook a lot of my mom's recipes for casual dinners. I grew up in a household in which we sat together every evening for dinner, and I still crave some of those dishes from time to time.
My cooking triumphs
Ahhhh, my puffy apple pancake rises 3 inches! I will post the recipe sometime.
My cooking tragedies
Too numerous to mention! That is why I try to find proven recipes that I know are good, that way I can't screw them up too badly.

Swedish Meatballs (Svenska Kottbullar)
So pleased with this recipe. It's been decades since eating traditional Swedish meatball, and the results are delight.

Mexican Fiesta Pasta Salad
All around solid recipe. Pretty quick to put together with ingredients I typically have on hand. I now prefer this over a classic macaroni salad. Makes the first cook out of the season a smashing success!
