Born and raised in Eastern Montana, now living in North Central Montana. I have 3 wonderful guys - hubby and 2 boys. We love try new recipies so we don't get in a rut. I probably got my cooking gene from my wonderful German Grandmother, and the fact that my mom would rather do dishes than cook allowed me to experiment with new dishes as a youngster.
My favorite things to cook
I like to bake cookies and breads and try anything. I like trying different ethnic recipies anything is a go, but not too spicy.
My favorite family cooking traditions
Gathering at Grama's house for the holidays. Grama used to have every major holiday at her house. We don't do this any more since we've all grown and started having our own families.
My cooking triumphs
Any grown up dish that my boys will try more than once, or will request. They actually like pumpkin soup, and garlic chicken supreme pizza.
My cooking tragedies
My carmel rolls always rise a little too much. As a new wife I made turkey tetrazzini one time and tried to subsitute ingredients I didn't have, needless to say we went out for that meal. I've never quite mastered pie cursts, that's still mom's specialty.
