Mom and wife who loves to cook comfort food and try new things!
My favorite things to cook
I really love to cook everything, I just don't like to clean up the mess afterwards.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Swedish pancakes! My great grandpa, great aunts, and my mom all made these yummy thin pancakes. There was never a written recipe in our family it was just something they all new how to make from memory. When I was young it never occurred to me to make sure I knew how to make them. Sadly all my family members who could make them have passed away and I cannot find a recipe to duplicate the pancakes they made. I will continue trying but I urge everyone to make sure they know how to make favorite family dishes. Since my Mom has passed there are so many dishes I can't recreate and I miss them and her terribly.
My cooking triumphs
Homemade bread, fried chicken, and cinnamon rolls!!!!
My cooking tragedies
First attempt at fried chicken. Ended up with burnt and soggy on the outside raw on the inside chicken. Also ended up with fire department at our place for carbon monoxide but that wasn't my fault...I swear
