As a graphic designer by day and painter as I make the time for it, preparing foods in an artful fashion is a treat for my husband, friends and family.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Pies for Thanksgiving; krumkakke, a Norwegian cookie during the holidays; blackeyed peas and greens for New Years; and brunch torte for the 4th of July.
My cooking triumphs
Whatever delights the diners. For example, the pecan pie and pumpkin pie made with oil pie crust.
My cooking tragedies
Had to be the time I served cold avacado soup. That was over 20 years ago ... I prepared the soup and served it in portions much too generous for the type of soup. Must not have been too tasty either as my friends still remember that failed attempt at cold soup.
