I grew up on a dairy farm in Minnesota and now reside in West Fargo. I am a dental hygienist and dental assistant at a practice in Fargo and I LOVE to cook.
My favorite things to cook
Some of my favorite recipes are my minestrone soup, tater-tot hotdish, my homemade mac n cheese, mom's meatloaf, and I always like a nice roast chicken dinner complete with carrots and mashed potatoes.
My favorite family cooking traditions
When I was a kid I remember my mom making caramels, dipped pretzels and other goodies. I asked my mom to teach me her caramel making secrets and now I am carrying on the tradition.
My cooking triumphs
Mastering my mom's homemade caramels!
My cooking tragedies
Hmmm...well nothing too terrible. I did start my boyfriends pot holder on fire once. I had no idea it was even buring. It was a huge thick one so I never felt the heat. My boyfriend remarked "Why is it so smokey in here?" and then I realized my mitt was on fire! I've never heard the end of that one.
