About this Cook
My favorite things to cook
Practically anything. I love making tasty casseroles, soups, meat dishes. Baking has been a hobby since I was maybe 8. It all started when I wanted to have the leftover dough when my Mom baked :).
My favorite family cooking traditions
Christmas: roasting the Ham in the night before Christmas Eve, gingerbread, pickled herring with veggies (must sound like a real treat, but it is!)

Peppered Shrimp Alfredo
Wow, and I mean w-o-w. I made this the other day, and my wife said, and I quote: "This might be the best meal I've ever eaten." Can't find Alfredo sauce in the store here in the North Po..I mean Finland, so i made it with this Alfredo Sauce 2 recipe on this site. I didn't use as much mushrooms as the recipe suggested, but I'm sure the ½ pound wouldn't be too much. I also didn't add the cayenne (there wasn't any), but all the same - this was brilliant!

Potato Chips
I used a regular peeler knife to make really thin slices. However, using a ceramic dish caused the chips to really stick even though I used loads of oil. I'll be trying to use some baking parchment next time, as someone suggested. The taste and crispiness (is that a word?) is absolutely perfectamundo, but only four stars because of the stickiness. EDIT: Tried the parchment. Avoided sticking but I don't think the chips became as crispy. Good anyway.

Finnish Nissua
The correct name is 'Nisu' or 'Pulla'. You may want to try them like this: after making and raising the dough, roll buns a bit larger than golf balls and let them rise for ca 15 mins. Then make a hole in the middle of the buns with your finger. Fill the holes with butter and cover the butter with some white sugar. Put some egg wash on the buns and bake them in the oven (375 degrees) for maybe 10 minutes. The beatiful brown color will tell you when they're done. Enjoy with a glass of cold milk, that's the proper Finnish way to do it!
