My favorite things to cook
I Love to use my slow cooker and I am always looking for new recipes. I love the way the whole house smells wonderful when a meal is simmering.
I also like to bake--cookies are my favorite!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
We are of Norwegian descent and holiday time always means batches of lefse--YUM!! We also make spritz cookies and rosettes.
My cooking triumphs
I seem to have fairly good luck with any type of baked goods--unfortunately for my waistline! I have a recipe similar to the Clone of a Cinnabon recipe that is guaranteed to bring family members running to the kitchen when these rolls come out of the oven.
My cooking tragedies
My mother has a recipe that was handed down for a molasses type cookie which calls for an icing made of sugar and cream boiled together. There are no proportions of the ingredients and it is very touchy and has to be boiled to just the right consistency. I have had more disasters with this icing than I have had successes but they are so good when the icing does turn out correctly that I keep trying.
