About this Cook
I am 23 years old. I am from Finland, but married an American and have been living in the states for little over 3 years. We went back to Finland for a year and it was great... now we are back to the states and I miss Finland a lot, but ready for new experiences!
My favorite things to cook
I love to cook casseroles, because they are so easy, but tasty! I also bake a lot.. pies, cookies.. mostly to satisfy my sweet tooth :)
My favorite family cooking traditions
We don't have a lot of traditions with my husband yet, but my favorite from my family back in Finland is the Christmas cooking! I love the smell of the house at that time.. smells like cinnamon and rice pudding and ham and everything great. We also gather as sisters, and make traditional Finnish christmas casseroles together.. they turn out to be so much better than the ones bought from the store.
My cooking triumphs
I never cooked before I was maybe 18.. I mean, I tried sometimes, but it never really did go very well. When I got married, I decided I want to learn how to cook. I guess the first triumph was when I cooked something, and everyone actually enjoyed it!
My cooking tragedies
Everything I did before :) I used to be such a terrible cook.. I would overcook the potatoes, under cook the rice, have hard as rock cookies, have flat as paper bread.. you name it. But after starting to learn and looking for sites like this, I don't have as many tragedies anymore!

Chicken Parmesan
Flavorwise this was good, but next time I make it I will totally ommit the tomato sauce, and just add it when plating. That way the chicken will stay crispy but still get all the flavors.

Chicken Tikka Masala
I made this for my husband because he loves tikka masala, and always gets it when we go eat Indian. I ommited the salt from everywhere except the marinade for the chicken and everything turned out delicious! My husband is begging me to make it again :)
