Love to try new recipes... even on company. Grateful to have 3 kids and a hubby who are appreciative of my efforts and are willing to try anything.
My favorite things to cook
My favorite family cooking traditions
Oyster stew at Christmas, Swedish recipes from my hubby's family, teaching my kids to enjoy baking/cooking.
My cooking tragedies
My very first meal as a new bride. The recipe was supposed to make some sort of multi-bean soup/stew cooked with ham - all day long. When it came time to serve it, I slopped it into his bowl. It was the most unappealing presentation you could imagine... looked more like the dog had climbed up onto the table and been sick or something. Bless his heart, my dear hubby tried eating the stuff. Wretched stuff... also learned later that my husband, while generally please with just about anything, doesn't have a tremendous fondness for beans. Burned the recipe after tossing the beans and eating cereal for dinner!
