I am a nurse, and have worked in the same hospital for 30+ years. I am married with 3 nurse daughters, 3 son-in-laws and 5 grandchildren. I love to cook for a crowd.
My favorite things to cook
I love trying new recipes, and read recipe books like a novel. All Recipes is a wonderful website, and I have used many recipes from there. We love to grill, but I love an old fashioned potatoes and gravy meal, as well. Love to make different desserts, and cookies are a staple at our house.
My favorite family cooking traditions
My family is Danish, and I have a great Danish bread I make at Christmas - my mother makes a wonderful suet pudding. I make Danish Aebleskevers for my grandkids - they love them. We eat all our meals at the table with the TV off, pray before meals, and talk to each other about our day.
My cooking triumphs
when I mastered good pie crust and bread!
My cooking tragedies
I have them all the time. I remember once when my kids were little, I spent hours on a cake with a cream cheese layer. It was beautiful, and expensive. We put it on the floor board of our pick up - and I stepped in it!
