About this Cook
I grew up in Alaska and started cooking just out of high school. My mom is the one who inspired me to start cooking, and now I just can't get enough. I am always searching for the perfect recipe of an old favorite or something totally new to my palate.
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook soups, pasta dishes, casseroles, and yummy appetizers. I also love to cook with makes sauces taste so much better!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My mother is a great cook and we grew up eating lots of soups, so that is what I love to cook the most. They are generally easy to make, very flavorful, and usually taste better the next day as leftovers.
My cooking tragedies
In high school, my mom and I made pea soup and left it to "simmer" while we went to church. When we got back, the whole house was filled with black smoke and I thought our house was burning down. It turns out that one of us forgot to turn the heat down to low and it was on high the whole time! Our pea soup had completed burned down, and the bottom of the pot was black. We had to throw it out and air out the house for a few days!

Annie's Fruit Salsa and Cinnamon Chips
Delicious and refreshing! I used raspberries, strawberries, 1 fuji apple, frozen peaches, and 2 kiwi. I used peach preserves and skipped the sugar altogether and everyone loved it. I set it outside to keep cool and it accidentally got slushy frozen in our cold temps and I think the cold consistency made it even better!!

Dutch Babies II
Doubled the recipe, swapped the nutmeg for 1 tsp vanilla, and baked in a 12 inch cast iron skillet for about 20 minutes. Turned out beautiful and delicious just as I had hoped! Will be making again- the family including 2 picky kids loved it!!
