About this Cook
I am a stay at home mom with 2 little boys. Dinner time can be a challenge when trying to "accomodate" 2 kids and a hubby. I try to just make one meal that everyone will love. But sadly, what they liked last week is not a guaranteed winner next week.
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake all things yummy! I don't bake as often for fear of eating it all!
My favorite family cooking traditions
Lefse- it is an all day process. Eggrolls- my mom's recipe is awesome. Everytime I make them I am reminded of all my family parties.
My cooking triumphs
Chicken cordon bleu (from this website).
My cooking tragedies
Baking a pumpkin pie after forgetting to add the sugar. Baking a pumpkin pie (on another occasion) and forgetting to remove the pie crust paper lining, that separates the two frozen crusts. Nothing like a little extra fiber in your pumpkin pie.

Wheat Crackers
Very good but I did modified it to cut back on calories (which is really nothing like the original). I guess at this point, I'm just using the cooking method. Here's what I used...4 TBS flaxseeds, 1/4 c toasted wheat bran, 1 c whole wheat flour, 2 TBS olive oil, 1 c water. I've made it both with salt and without and I prefer it without salt. I scooped half onto a silicon mat, covered it with wax paper and rolled it out as thin as I could. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Remove the wax paper and flip the silicon mat over onto the parchment paper. Then you can peel away the silicon mat and the dough is left intact. Then I scored it with a pizza cutter.

Spicy Chicken Thai Soup
I've never had Thai food before but gave this a try. Very good. I added 4Tbs of the red curry paste and it had a nice heat in the back of my throat. Not too much, though. I agree with others that said it would be nice with rice or noodles. I will cook some bulgar or spinach noodles to add to the soup for dinner. I also added a few slices of tomato to my bowl before eating (and to save on calories I used 1 can lite coconut milk).

Southern Candied Sweet Potatoes
Halved the sugar and butter and cooked it all in a cast iron skillet. I added a handful of pecans. It was delish!
