I've been married to my husband for 33 years. We both love to cook! I like to read, travel, and quilt. We have two naughty cats, and live a quiet life. There is never enough room in the kitchen when we both want to cook!
My favorite things to cook
I love to bake bread and I have finally mastered stir-fry! I like to find the "master" recipe for things, and then experiment with my own versions. Kitchen chemistry fascinates me!
My favorite family cooking traditions
My Swedish grandmother baked cookies every Christmas season. We try to do the same, some of her old recipes are stand-bys...We only have desserts for Sunday, is that tradition? On Easter, nut rolls, ham and potato salad...Both my husband and I go for non-traditional meals for special events. If we have guests, they always get something we've never tried before...guests are our guinea pigs!:-) They love it!
My cooking triumphs
Baklava! King Cake! Kung Pao Chicken!
My cooking tragedies
One time I made Stir Fried Liver. Everyone at the table remained silent as they took the first bite. Without a word, I got out of my seat, went to the phone, and called for take-out cheeseburgers! We still laugh about that meal.
